The Mayor Stands Small

Three days after the snow storm, and I can still see Sarah Palin's house from my stoop.  I wonder what the city is worse at, running a bookmaking operation (OTB) or shoveling snow?  What a cluster fuck.  Who knew Bloomberg's ban on salt extended to salt spreading snow plows?  And it ain't just side streets.  Major streets/avenues look like a Vermont ski town.  On Monday, the midget mayor suspended alternate side of the street parking but did not suspend parking meters.  The snow was higher than the meter, but under the punishment of a fine, you still had to feed the meter.  That's our business-minded midget mayor for ya.  He treats parking meters like the Bloomberg terminals that he made him a midget billionaire: a cash- generating source of revenue.

Here's a plan for snow storms: if you get welfare, you have to report to the nearest sanitation department and grab a shovel.  If you don't show up, you don't get your check that week.
