"New York is a place where you can do whatever you want to do. The government should get out of your personal life." – NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg
This from the man who, among other things, has proposed a citywide prohibition on food service establishments selling sweetened beverages larger than 16 ounces.
Maybe that was his operating philosophy when he went AWOL during the Blizzard some years ago.
To quote Jimmy Breslin's remark about another mayor, Bloomberg is "a small man in search of a balcony."
