Instapundit linked to this article about all the flak New York Mayor Bloomberg is receiving for not plowing the streets. Reminds me of Denver's big winter storm on or about Christmas in 1982 when Mayor McNichols couldn't figure out how to plow the streets either. I was out of town for the holidays, and when I got back several days after the storm, the intersection of Colfax and Colorado Blvd was an impassable mass of rutted ice, and stayed that way for about 2 weeks. The city elections were the next May, and McNichols got a well-deserved boot. Ever since then, plowing the streets has been a priority, and they seem to do a pretty decent job.
