If you don’t read The Prattler read it! It’s my beloved Dawg’s weekend blog
He perfectly satirizes RudyG’s one note pitch. A big part of me has been wanting to switch to the Republican party just so I can vote against him in the primary.
But I might not be living in New York then and might be living in a state that lets you cross party lines for the primary. That’s how strongly I feel about him.
He wanted us to change term limits so that he could remain mayor as he believed he was the only person to be able to get us out of the mess. We didn’t.
I voted for Bloomberg the first time because I knew he was stronger and would be a better mayor than either RudyG or Mark Green.
My life was truly divided into “before” and “after” I have been contemplating, as too many of you know, leaving New York, and will for many reasons. Many of them are personal.
I have just reached a place called almost peaceful.
It hasn’t been an easy journey.
If I have to hear about 9/11 for the next two years because it’s the only thing that RudyG can bring to the table I can’t be held responsible for my actions. I don’t think that I’m alone in my feelings.
Most New Yorkers feel that on 9/10 he was a has been mayor who paraded his personal life, oh, he just makes me sick.
Of course many more people care about Paris Hilton being returned to jail.
Sometimes I wish that I were one of them
I just realized that two years ago people would have called me selfish for not wanting to hear or talk about 9/11 other than to slam RudyG.
I hope the September issue of every monthly magazine isn’t filled with recollections by third cousins twice removed who met the deceased once at a wedding.
It still hurts too much. Magazines and newspapers have trivialized it. A blank issue would be a much better tribute. Or, novel idea, interviews with real New Yorkers who pay the price of 9/11 every damn day. I can’t afford to live in my own city anymore, and I do resent that.
