Get a Shovel, Carl

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Dec• 28•10

New York City Mayor Bloomberg is catching the wrath of cranky New Yorkers, especially from those living in the city’s four outer boroughs.  It seems the streets haven’t been plowed quickly enough of the two feet of snow dumped on Gotham 24-plus-hours ago.

“There was clearly insufficient planning, and New Yorkers are paying too steep a price,” huffs Brooklyn state Senator Carl Kruger (D).  “Someone has to be accountable.”

Particularly galling to many is the fact that Manhattan, the ostensible capital of the world, is mostly up and running while some side streets in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island remain snow-clogged.

One wonders exactly how much snow would need to fall for the Mayor to get a break from the cacophony of complainers.  If, say, 100 feet of snow were to fall, would “someone” have to be held accountable for snow on the ground a day later.  How about four feet?  Or three?  Remnants of two are clearly unacceptable.

If state Senator Kruger really wants to perform a public service, he should get a shovel.
