Mayor Thompson Could Mean "Fear of Going Out at Night" (Giuliani), "Detroit" (Bloomberg)
The Thompson campaign and Public Advocate candidate Bill de Blasio blasted Giuliani's remarks, with de Blasio calling on Bloomberg to disavow the former Mayor's "veiled race baiting." Questioned about Giuliani's speech afterward, Bloomberg said, "Detroit went from a great city with lots of good paying jobs to a city that's basically holding on for dear life." Detroit, cynical readers may note, has had black mayors since 1974.
"This event," reports Yeshiva World News, "is always a valuable outlet for the survivors whose daily personal challenges as senior citizens are compounded by the horrific memories they have been forced to carry throughout the years," referring, presumably, to the Holocaust rather than to New York before Giuliani.
