From the Daily News:
The widow of the city's first swine flu victim blasted Mayor Bloomberg for saying New Yorkers should "consider yourself lucky" to get the virus.
"I'm not feeling very lucky. I'm sorry I can't agree with that," said Bonnie Wiener, whose husband, Assistant Principal Mitchell Wiener, died last week.
"My children are not feeling very lucky either," the widow added. "It's a very puzzling comment to make."
Bloomberg made the awkward remark a day after the city suffered its second swine flu death.
"In some senses, if you have H1N1 [virus], you should consider yourself lucky because it so far seems to be a milder flu than the garden variety," Bloomberg said Monday.
Hey, remember when he told the family of a deceased detective who had contracted lung disease from Ground Zero that he was not a hero?
