Bloomberg's Black Friday

My time in Boulder is coming to an end and I've enjoyed the heck out of  the Conference on World Affairs.  However, the only time all week I wished I was back home was yesterday when the news broke that Mayor Mike Bloomberg had canned his schools chancellor, Cathie Black -- after three months and a week!!

While the action occurred yesterday, it couldn't have been easy for the mayor to wake up up to this morning's headlines.  All papers carried analysis of what this meant -- with a fair amount of unanimity that this most disastrous hire underscored what a mess Bloomberg's third term had become.  I discussed some of those problems last month.  Based on the Bloomberg quote noted therein: "I've always said that if you want lifetime employment in our administration, you just get The Post to demand that I fire you." I'm guessing that Ms. Black might wish that New York's  tabloids had called for he head right away.
