It is estimated that the average man speaks 2,000 words a day; a finite number that diminishes as we get older. Wrap your head around the eighteen inane words that Stu Loeser, Mayor Bloomberg's spokesman, wasted today:
"Like 80,000 other people, Mayor Bloomberg went to the U2 concert tonight - but he did not fly there."
You'll never get those back, Stu.
I guess this illustrates that when our regular-guy billionaire mayor's helicopter pilot screws the pooch on the way to get an Irish rock star's endorsement at a concert in New Jersey, and forces the mayor to take his luxury SUV with a police escort, that this humanizes the mayor and makes him seem just like us.
And Bono. Hugo Chavez may be a philanthropist, but he is still a despot. If you care to take a peak out of your helicopter for a minute or two we could give you the real story on the benevolent despot you pandered to last night.
