Today’s meet-up between Mayor Bloomberg and the cast of Glee was ostensibly in honor of the show’s final season two episodes, and also, less directly, in honor of New York City, which, as Bloomberg put it, “is open to everyone Greeks, Geeks, Gleeks we love ’em all. Our tolerance makes us the perfect setting for Glee finale.”
He also tweeted “They didn’t let me sing, but still an honor to welcome the cast of Glee to NYC.” Do we detect a hint of wistfulness, Mr. Mayor? Tolerance, indeed. They let Gwyneth sing!
