Spinning Through The Slush At Top Speed
It's worth noting that within 12 hours of the "greatest snowstorm in NYC history", the streets were plowed, the trains were running and the entire city went to work yesterday morning with only the slightest hiccups in our routines. Even with mountains of snow piled on the corners, this town still spins like a Swiss watch. Is there any other big city in the world that could have pulled that off?
To my mind, this feat goes largely to the credit of Mayor Bloomberg, who continues to defy the expectations of many, even those who put him in office (including myself). I suppose the man did not become a self-made gajillionaire by being slow on the ball.
