The sad news broke this morning that Ed Koch, mayor of New York City for twelve years and certainly one of the most colorful characters in American political history, died earlier today. He was 88.
Disagree with him on some things though one might, it must be agreed by all that Koch gave his gal-darned best for his city. Koch managed his town instead of trying to manage his town's people (yeah I'm looking at you Michael Bloomberg).
Thoughts and prayers going out to Hizzoner's family.
