If I'm ever in a barfight... 

...one man I'd want to watch my back would be Jimmy Breslin.

Why? He doesn't pull his punches.

Informed that the mayor of New York [Michael Bloomberg] had just made a huge and bold move on the White House and asked for citizenship for her dead soldier, who was a Dominican, she said at the wake, "What good is it now? He can't use it."

He sure can't. He was Private Luis Moreno. He was 19 years old. They were loading him in his box into a hearse for the ride to a cemetery forever.


Bloomberg is supposed to fight for this city and instead he acts like he is afraid of Bush and these other Republicans. Simultaneously, and worse, he acts like he wants to be one of them. He crowed over bringing the Republican convention to New York. It will put people in hotel rooms, he says. Beautiful! We count money while some young guy from the Bronx gets his head blown off.

There is much worse in the rest of the article.

I dunno about you, but I plan to be in NYC this late August. Just to witness, y'all. It should be very interesting--and an historically significant time and place to be.
