'It's for the kids'
Bloomberg celebrated the birth of our constitutional democracy by slamming the State Supreme Court for "interpreting the law" and for ruling that his closing of 19 N.Y. schools was illegal.
In a Wall St. Journal article yesterday, Bloomberg admits he broke the law but claims that the court should have looked at the "bigger picture" since he did it for the kids.
"We're playing with children's lives, not whether the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed," Mr. Bloomberg said. "They should look at the context of it, and for them to think, 'Well, you know, I'm just here to interpret the law,' that's not true. They are part of society."
