In Other News...

The landmark CFI suit is still being blocked by Governor Pataki, who has failed to mention it in his recent efforts to fashion himself as a potiential Republican presidential nominee. UFT President Randi Weingarten, who supported Pataki in his last campaign, says it's outrageous.

In fairness to the governor, he did offer to fund 60% of the mandate. The judge had ruled that the city could pay part of it, and CFI suggessted it pay 25%. Bloomberg's rep said the city would pay absolutely nothing, and that NYC would say "No, thank you" to the entire suit if compelled to pay any part of it.

So much for this mayor's priorities. Bear that in mind when DOE reps blame the governor.
