Third term starts off with a fizzle

From the NY Post:

In the first State of the City speech of his third term, Mayor Bloomberg yesterday pledged to do "more than any city has ever done" to improve the lives of residents, even as he offered no grand new initiatives.

Observers said the constituencies he targeted for aid -- from small businesses to troubled kids -- indicated the mayor was acutely aware of November's close election.

With government resources scarce, Bloomberg concentrated on relatively low-cost strategies for helping the neediest, which elicited only tepid applause from an audience of several hundred gathered at Frank Sinatra HS in Astoria, Queens.

Every time i see the name 'Frank Sinatra' i gag.

He is from Jersey and he beat up Mia Farrow.

This is not a good model for kids or our community.

Thanks to the Vallones for that one.

Naming the school after Sinatra was Astorian Tony Bennett's doing. I'd have named it after Astorian Maria Callas or Ethel Merman.

my vote is for the 1970's L.I.C. high school "principled principal" Dr. Howard Hurwitz.
