Who'd want to be Mayor of New York City. We've just heard on the radio news while driving to work that New Yorkers are disappointed that Hurricane Irene was a bit of a damp squib by the time that she got to the Big Apple. And they're taking out their frustrations on NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Bloomberg is under fire for his mass evacuation order issued Saturday morning NZ time. The measures were far and away beyond any precautions ever taken before, and were wide-reaching. With good reason; the forecasts surrounding Hurricane Irene spoke of weather events which could have been catastrophic to such a populated area.
As it happened, Irene weakened as she approached NYC, and the city was spared her full fury, to the chagrin of some. Trying to please all the people all of the time requires super-human abilities, but we guess that in New York City, it's an impossibility!
