Fireworks law in NY

Gov. Cuomo wants to allow sparklers and cap guns. Bloomberg objects, claiming that said toys could be used by terrorists. Can't the "man" just fawking resign before he becomes a complete laughingstock?

(For the record, I just had an amusing night playing with various pyrotechnic hardware several states outside of NY.)

Not as if they're hard to find. Personally, hoping that Weiner will win the mayoral race -- at least with his history of "dirty" deeds, he won't be able to pretend to be trying to clean up the city. I'd rather have an immoral scumbag running things than someone who can harbor pretensions of being a moral crusader.

Honestly, I think he had a few mini-strokes and is getting slightly soft in the head. Less than half a year to go, and counting. Hope he hauls his sorry arse back to Bermuda with his tail between his legs come next year.

I'd almost feel sorry for him if he weren't such a C U Next Tuesday.

Though fortunately, enforcement seems a bit spotty once you get out of the "nicer" areas...

It's a little late for that.

Did you read the deal where he suggested that minorities ought to be stopped and frisked more than white people? You can't make this stuff up.

At least we'll know where we stand with a self-serving, corrupt prick was my point. And maybe he'll create enough strife between himself, City Council, and Albany that we'll have utter paralysis for at least four years. We may not see any improvement, but not much deterioration either.

Nope, didn't see this gem -- have been slammed busy with family and work issues recently. Has anyone filed a civil rights suit against hizzonor in person yet? Apparently, he's using his own money to defend stop and frisk. Perhaps, since he's paying for it, he should also be able to afford a few lawsuit settlements and legal fees.
