Prince Andrew is such a control freak that it escapes common sense that he didn't know this was going on. I think he should be worried.

I have no doubt that "climate change" is real. Entropy is a physical certainty. However, common sense, and some critical thinking would question the validity of any theory where every possible outcome can be explained by that single theory. I think that "climate change" theory has more to do with a political agenda, than with actual climate change.

This guys is a thug, whose rein of terror was beyond any reason. Apparently he has anger management issues. I don't think this guy should be walking the streets again for many, many years.

When republicans in Congress do anything in the dark of night, it's because they're hiding something. When democrats do things in dark of night - like passing Obama Care, it's because they're doing God's work. Interesting. Congress isn't elementary school - it's time for Dems to stop acting like petulant children that can't get their way, and grow up. I'm disappointed that Paul Tonko participated in this charade, but not at all surprised. He's a party man.

The police didn't come out because they likely knew it was the mayor, and they also likely knew he was intoxicated, so they didn't know how to respond. If it is shown that he was drunk, even from anecdotal evidence, those officers should be fired, as the coverup is worse than the crime. Also, the mayor should be charged, at a minimum, with harassment. The ladies he harassed will no doubt be filing a civil suit. It seems that the "power structure" within the city is trying to cover this, but with the slow drip, drip, drip, they likely can't. If I were the mayor, the public safety commish, and the officers, I would be worried.

You are correct, we are lucky that our mayor has the courage to make hard decisions (like to drive drunk) and take action (like to drive drunk) to protect our garbage. He seems well qualified to do so.

It seems obvious that they are covering something, and don't know what to do. If the Mayor was drunk, which by anecdotal evidence, he was, he needs help. But more troubling is how the police handled it. They covered for him, and let him drive home. That is far more serious.

I doubt he is "truly, truly sorry for that....", his crimes - I think he is truly, truly sorry that he got caught.

Phil Steck's arguments against term limits seem weak to me. His objectivity on this subject is also suspect, given that he and his fellow legislators want to protect their jobs at any cost. I think terms limits are the best antiseptic for the bacteria that is the very definintion of the NYS legislature.

Most police officers believe that they are exempt from laws that the public must abide. Look at the way they drive. While they may be able to get away with poor behavior behind the wheel of a car, until the laws of physics are repealed, they will continue to be a danger to themselves and the pubic.
