From the NY Post:
Mayor Bloomberg drew jeers from Brooklyn to Harlem during Martin Luther King Jr. Day events yesterday.
At the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where he was one of a dozen city elected leaders and politicians on hand, Bloomberg was greeted with cackles, groans and boos the moment he stepped on stage.
“Come on, time out,” an exasperated Bloomberg said as he tried to talk about his education policy.
“For those of you who want to express yourself, there’s a time and a place for everything. We’re here to honor a man who valued education,” he implored.
Bloomberg’s attempt to compare his record on education — boasting of higher graduation rates for minorities — to the priorities of the slain civil-rights leader only escalated the booing.
“Thank you, that’s very genteel,” he said, looking toward hecklers in the audience. “You probably belong in — never mind.”
That remark brought a stunned silence to the audience, before Bloomberg quickly wrapped up.
