It was just reported that Mayor Bill de Blasio eats his pizza with a fork and a knife. Well how about that.
Now I know I’m not the only one. Mayor de Blasio is a man after my own heart. You can’t enjoy a pizza and savor the taste and flavor if you don’t eat it slowly with a fork and a knife.
To Mayor de Blasio, I say, “Good show, you have good taste and truly know the proper way to eat a pizza.”

No separation of powers
The people are best served when government operates with checks and balances. Mayor Bill de Blasio’s engineering of Melissa Mark-Viverito as speaker of the City Council tarnishes his reputation as a liberal and is an inauspicious beginning for his Mayoralty (“Mark-Viverito wins speaker’s election,” Jan. 9). Nor does it say much for the City Council members who went along with this infraction of democratic principles, but given that body’s history of mediocrity, it comes as no surprise.
