Ghouliani was a bad mayor. He did some good things but he did more bad things. Bloomie was a huge improvement. But all politicians are like fish, it's only a matter of time before they start stinking.

So, you don't know your husbands normal schedule? You don't get suspicious of him going out during the wee hours of the morning? She is REALLY blind, gullable or STUPID. I mean, I don't wish death but that's what he gets for being dumb.

Interesting story in today's Washington Post about how 2009 is on track to have the lowest crime rate in 45 years in most major cities in the U.S. including NY. They also say that criminologists are beginning to believe that there will be no increase in crime because of the economy and point out that the 1930's(depression) had a much lower crime rate than the 1920's(boom years).washingtonpost.com
