I am writing to ask you to reconsider your plan to override Mayor Wiseman's veto with respect to the Equality Resolution and Plus-1 Insurance program for city workers.
I met Herbert Block, the late, great editorial cartoonist Herblock, in Washington in the early 1980s. Maybe I should say I saw him. "Met" is too strong a word. I never even shook his hand.

Last week was a cold one. We spent much time glued to the digital thermometer and calling out temperatures to the household.
I like a feeding frenzy as much as the next shark. But I can't get a taste for Rep. Steve Scalise's blood.
