I wish I could still call in with an answer to the question you asked on your show on the 22nd, when you asked listeners to call in with the worst two things and the best two things Mayor Bloomberg has done for this city.

The absolute two worst things this mayor has done in this city:
a) he has made a mockery of deomcracy by pushing through the reversal of our term limits

b) he has villified the teaching profession and train wrecked education in this city, while at the same time convincing the voting public that he has done a wonderful job of improving our educational system.

Thank you for listening.
