Ed Koch: Screw Liu

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Mar• 28•11

Self-promoting New York City Comptroller John Liu and former Mayor Ed Koch are in a public snit over objections made by the former over the latter’s name being affixed to the Queensboro Bridge, the New York Observer’s Azi Paybarah today reports.

Liu, a Queens native, questioned the suitably of naming the East River span after Koch in a 5:31 a.m. email to New York City Council Members last week, reminding them of a perceived Asian sleight Koch made in 1983, when Liu was going out with cheerleaders, as Moe Green might say  (has anything good ever come of a 5:31 a.m. email?)

Koch in turn wrote that Liu ought to be “denounced.” Denounced! Yikes; sounds so Comintern.

Liu no doubt will have something more to say about that. He has something more to say about everything.

For the record, I have no problem with the city naming the Bridge “The Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge.”  Just as long as they leave The 59th Street Bridge alone.
