Isn’t it amazing, the NY Times reports that NYC hits the national average (21%) when it comes to poverty. The Bronx and Brooklyn lead the nation–#1 and #2– in unemployment. 1.8 million New Yorkers rely on food stamps. But… I suppose Mayor Bloomberg knows whose fault this is. Teachers.
I plead guilty. Ever since I left the city for Columbia County the city has been going downhill.
Meanwhile once a day I swim in my now freezing cold pond, watch the hawks zoom overhead (I’m envious), and think abut the Chicago Teachers Union–and I’m happy. We all need to do that once a day. Then back to changing the world. And drive into NYC or Boston for lunch.
