everytime I turn on wnyc I hear about a baby that got shot in a stroller. How many times a day this time 400-600 times? OBVIOUSLY SOMEONE IS MAKING YOU SPREAD THIS PROPAGANDA. Repeating statistically unlikely rare horrific tragedies and crimes seem to be your stock and trade. are you not embarrassed at all to do that? STOP AND FRISK IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CRIME GOING DOWN, LEAD GAS BEING ILLEGAL FOR 20 YEARS IS! You would have thought we learned our lesson from the roman empire, or maybe they did, and thought it was better to poison the poor with lead instead of the rich this time.

Didn't the first 'black' guy who called to note the increased 'unpredictability' of black voting also said he'd later vote for 'the other guy' after voting for de Blasio? Think Brian missed that and a great chance to question him.

So Deblasio wants people to vote for him because his son has an afro and he and his kids can dance?? Wow, anyone offended yet or is this really affective??

Well if I wasn't already not a Quinn fan the support of the three major new papers would turn me off to her. Do you really want a mayor that these three rags support!!

Who's behind the "Anyone But Quinn" people handing out flyers on the street this week?

Where is this debate to be televised? I found an article from a Houston paper that says it will be on WNBC but I don't see that on my Time Warner program listings. The article also talks about 60 mins on WNBC and 30 mins online, with some of the candidates asking that all the debate be televised.

Any info about all this?
