    Democrat Micah Kellner Wins Upper East Side State Assembly Seat

    June 05, 2007

    With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Micah Kellner was declared the winner Tuesday night of an Upper East Side state Assembly seat.

    Kellner, a Democrat, beat out Republican Greg Camp with 64.36 percent of the votes to fill the 65th District seat left vacant by former Assemblyman Alexander "Pete" Grannis.

    This was a special election, so only die-hards showed up. Camp (the Republican candidate) was endorsed by Mayor Bloomberg, the Citizens Union, the New York Sun, and even the New York Times. The NY Times pointed out that Camp was "an unusual Republican" who supported abortion, gay rights, and was against the death penalty.



    Terrorism vs. Lightning (What odds are greater?)

    Is a New Yorker more likely to get killed from a terrorist attack or from lightning?

So why do we see "If You See Something, Say Something" signs, and no signs about lightning? Why did Mayor Bloomberg warn about terrorism on October 6, 2005, just before the Apollo Theatre mayoral debate?
      
    Let's look at Mayor Bloomberg's statement, and then some of the facts.
    Bloomberg On JFK Plot: 'Stop Worrying, Get A Life'     
    (CBS) NEW YORK While questions continue to arise about the alleged plot to blow up a fuel pipeline beneath JFK Airport and surrounding neighborhoods, some are questioning why New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hasn't had a louder voice since the plot was foiled on Saturday.
