The Hard Cell

Mayor Bloomberg is hanging tough, displaying his characteristic disregard for common sense. His random searches have thus far produced a handful of knives and box cutters, and hundreds of cell phones. Angry parents will pick them up, but the kids will bring them back anyway.

If Mayor Bloomberg didn't like snow, he'd pass a law against it.

When he wanted a west side stadium, he did not present a referendum to the voters. He knew he would lose.

When the voters wanted small-class sizes, he singlehandedly killed the ballot. He knew he would lose. When a member of his school council appeared about to exercise free choice, he replaced her. Otherwise, he would have lost.

With Mayor Bloomberg, it's not about doing the right thing. It's his way or the highway, and the will of the people be damned.
