So Why Are City Offices Opened?

Stay indoors, Bloomberg recaps: "This is a storm that could easily kill you."

No kidding.

And yet, you opened city offices and told city employees this:

 “We need the city workers,” Mr. Bloomberg told a reporter. “We all take great pride in our dedication to serving the public, and this is something that we are going to have to do. It may be inconvenient, hopefully it’s not dangerous, but city workers are here to help others, and I think they all understand that.”

Which is it, Mike?

A dangerous storm that can kill you?

Or a good time to come out and get that marriage license without having to wait in too big a line?

Maybe there's a third option.

Maybe Bloomberg despises people who work for city government and just doesn't give a shit what happens to them.

I suspect it's something along those lines.


  1. I suspect you're right--the only explanation for his behavior.

  2. The one city office that apparently didn't so its job right was the one that regulates and inspects construction sites.

    Good thing no one has been hurt by the crane dangling over 57th Street.

    But that's a very precarious situation.

  3. Agree. They're now worried that it will fall, go through the pavement and strike underground gas lines, causing explosions. Con ed is trying to shut everything off below ground.
