"They're a danger to human beings flying, and we're doing what's appropriate."The city announced the "removal" of the geese after migrating birds stoppedboth engines on US Airways Flight1549,forcing the plane to make an emergency landing on the HudsonRiver.Wildlife experts told the city that killing was the only effective way tocontrol the problem.As for Obama, Bloomberg says the President is a hero."I'm sure what the President thought about was that particular fly might be spreading something like the H1N1 flu, and he was going to risk his own life with his hands - bare hands - withoutPurell and he protected the public by hitting that fly and we owe him a great debtof gratitude," Bloomberg said.

Personal Comment: ???? It seems every time our (make his own laws) Mayor opens his mouth these days, he sets his foot in it. -- Particularly, when Bloomberg is talking about animals.

"Well deserved rest in the sky" is how Bloomberg refers to rounding up and gassing 2,000 mostly family-rearing geese? Would he refer to human massacres in the same fashion?

As for the contention that a lone fly in the White House was potentially "spreading H1N1 virus" (i.e. "Swine Flu"), well, now we go from the sublime (gassed geese "resting" in the skies) to the ridiculous.

Which is it, Mr. Mayor? "Swine flue or Fly flu?" Is Bloomberg going to start a war on every creature in New York City based upon his (apparently) "germaphobic" fears?

Many people used to complain about Giuliani when he was Mayor.

But, Bloomberg seems far worse.

At least Giuliani had the guts to stay with one political party and respected the WILL of the voting public by serving only two terms.

Oh, and I don't think Giuliane was a germaphobic, animalphobic, birdaphobic, smokeaphobic, fataphobic and soda pop-a-phobic, nor suffered from a very real case of "foot in mouth" disease. -- PCA
