Wayne Barrett Channels the Mayor

Our illustrious colleague Wayne Barrett was at the New School's Center for New York City Affairs yesterday and, in the course of a Q&A, took on the personality of one of his great subjects, Mayor Bloomberg. "I just want to see if there is anybody in the audience who has a disability and a tape recorder with them," went part of his bit. "If there is I want them to know that I'm going to treat them just like anybody else in the audience... You may have heard that I recently said how much I love rich people. But you've never heard me say that I love people." You can get the rest from Liz Benjamin at the Daily News. Photo via Hunter College.
