What's Good for the Goose...

Mayor Bloomberg announced a roving search program yesterday. Because gun incidents are up 5%, the mayor wants to check students at random. I heard the mayor on the radio stating that the program would be a success even if no one was caught, as that would demonstrate its effectiveness as a deterrent.

That's a clear indication of the mayor's unacceptable standards. There must be accountability. To consider this program effective, we need incremental improvement each year without exception, and zero percent kids with guns by 2014. Furthermore, if there are zero incidents now, there must be fewer than zero incidents in the future.

No more excuses. Mayor Bloomberg must be judged by the same standards with which he judges us.
