Ed Koch Gets It Right

I lived in NYC during the entirety of NYC Mayor Ed Koch's term. I didn't always agree with him but I always appreciated his candor, his vigilance and his love of the city. He is and was a good man with important insight that should be listened to.

He speaks out about the present conflict.

His conclusion:

In my judgment, when history evaluates George W. Bush's position in the
pantheon of presidents, he will be compared with Harry S. Truman. Bush's
fortitude in recognizing the danger of Islamic fundamentalism to the U.S. and,
indeed, the Western world, and his awareness of the need to win this war of
civilizations is remarkable. He deserves the applause of all Americans and in
time he will receive it.

My glass is empty myra. "Thank you Sir may I have another?"

Kotch may be a 'rat, but he does know that "when you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk".

I better just stick to my jug of water. If I get to much alchy in me, the next thing I know, I'm doing a mumbled karaoke rendition of "man, I feel like a woman" embarrassingly off-key.

I propose a Dumberground Happy Hour. Cal, water for you, laced with just a small hint of grain alcohol. Its prevents cavities. Barista, you are easy. Usual for U.

I am. I'll drink just about anything that's in my pink cosmo glass. Cal? He's a hoot when he's hammered.

Bourbon/diet for you myra? How about I mix up a mean batch of Chocolate Cakes and we can all sing the Liberals Suck Song.
