Mr. Bloomberg Demands Quiet

City parents, ignored for years under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, are angry. Mayor Bloomberg, who does what he wants, when he wants, how he wants, now wants the angry parents to shut up and sit down. His buddy, NY State Regent Merryl Tisch, thinks they need to focus immediately on being quiet.

If she can just get them to relax long enough, the fuss over the Mayor's indifference to schoolchildren will die down, and he can get back to the serious full-time business of ignoring their parents as well. After all, Mayor Mike put a parent in every school before ignoring them last time. Now that he's hired a six-figure parent, he's earned the right to ignore them again.

Why don't you parents take a page from UFT President Randi Weingarten, who accepts whatever crap comes down the pike, praises it, and declares victory yet again when she achieves a contract with no new crap in it? Perhaps you, like Ms. Weingarten, can learn to be satisfied with only the crap Mayor Bloomberg has already issued.

It's simply unacceptable for parents to be messing with Mayor Mike's legacy. Mayor Mike says so, his friends say so, and that ought to be good enough for anyone.
