This Bronx-born senior was Mayor of New York City from 1978-1989. I got to thinking about him because of the pending NYC transit strike. I read a story today that said that Ed was in the midst of the last strike (which was in 1980) when he looked out of the downtown police headquarters window to see people walking over the Brooklyn Bridge to get to work. Word has it that Ed ran out to the bridge (and then went to every other bridge) and yelled, "Keep walking, New York. Don't let the bastards shut us down!" That's hot!
There has always been speculation that Ed is a brownie hound, but he denies it. He's said, "As I say in my book, my answer to questions on this subject is simply 'Fuck off'. There have to be some private matters left." You have to love a tough talking NYC mayor!
You go Ed! You're the mayor we grew up with and for that...you, my sexually ambiguous former mayor, are a Hometown Hero.
