Today, at his regular press conference, Mayor Bloomberg denied rumors that he was pleased with the money the drug business brought to the city.
Drugs are more resilient than banks, that’s sure, but only banks can vote,
Michael Bloomberg said, defending his ambiguity.
On the other hand, Lee Bollinger, Columbia University President, showed displeasure with Mayor Bloomberg’s much publicized decision to attract drug lords from Mexico City to New York. After three young men were recently found dead in a BMW not far from Columbia’s Morning Side campus, Bollinger was heard saying:
More killings near my campus, and I will have to lower the students’ tuition.
The good news is that the autopsy report ultimately confirmed the strong initial suspicion that the three young men were not affiliated with Columbia: they had been underage at the time of the murder.
