I can’t link. I mean I know how to do it. Even learned the HTML, but my almost state of the art computer three years ago is having a few age related problems, including some memory loss, and it’s hard to find people to fix them this week and next. Though I know many computer consultants (Mr. Ralph is one) I’d rather not ask for help from very busy friends.
If I could link I would link to the Metro section of The New York Times, Pg B1, 12/24/04 entitled: A legacy of Giuliani Years: Civil Rights Suits Against City
A very brief recap: Since Bloomberg became mayor the city has spent close to $2,000,000 to settle law suits brought by both city residents and city workers who said that the Giuliani admin had retaliated against them for excersing free speech and other rights under the Constitution. The figure I quoted will go higher as not every case has been settled.
When the Constitution and the Bill of Rights–my bible–are screwed with in New York City where we all take everything as our right for being born, that’s big. And can be easily spread.
It’s a holiday and I’m so not in the mood to rant about this, but if you think of Bernie Kerik as Giuliani’s moral meter you’re on the right track.
