WAS THE NEW YORK BLIZZARD SNAFU DELIBERATE?
According to this article in the New York Post, the debacle that was the weekend New York area snow non-removal was the fault of unions "wanting to teach a lesson" to Mayor Michael "Nanny" Bloomberg for budget cuts, demotions and cutting of non-productive city employees and this entire action was actually ordered by union bosses. If this story is true, then these so-called "public servants" should be prosecuted for malfeasance. In the meantime, in order to prevent further nonsense of this sort, why doesn't the City of New York hire private companies to do the jobs formerly done (mostly well but sometimes poorly) by the public employees and remove their need and ability to screw up the citizens who pay their salaries. Outgoing governor of New York State, David Patterson, is calling for a criminal investigation into the allegations according to this article.
