More than a dozen angry residents confronted Mayor Michael Bloomberg as he visited a school in hard-hit Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn.
Mud from the storm is still piled like small snow banks in the street there.
The residents complained Monday about a continuing lack of power and heat, and about spoiled food in their refrigerators.
They also said they were afraid of burglaries.
The mayor told them the city is trying its hardest to solve all of the problems related to the storm.
He said residents can call 311 for directions to a center where they can get food and clothing.
Notice how he puts this into the impersonal third person - the city is doing the best it can.
As if he is not in charge of the city.
The Accountability Mayor sure does love to shirk accountability for his performance as mayor.
As the cold descends on the city, a lot of these people without power, with damaged homes, with no way to get to work like the people in the Rockaways (where the A train is out of commission for a while) - they're not going to let him skate on the accountability.
