Bloomberg Wants to Take Over WTC
Mayor Bloomberg notices that "progress on the redevelopment of the World Trade Center has been frustratingly slow," and in a Wall Street Journal editorial, suggests the solution is to first listen to him brag about how many rich people he got to live in Lower Manhattan just by showering them with money and tax breaks, and then to get rid of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, which has been doing a lousy job on the WTC site, and give responsibility to the city -- that is, to Bloomberg, who with his delightful dog Dollar will build new towers out of gold.
Maybe we can get Bloomberg to stick with term limits after all: he must be awfully bored with his job if he's fishing for so much extra work outside of it.
