The Sacred and the Profane

Speaking a few minutes after Freddy at a raucous mixer of young people from the Republican Jewish Coalition and the National Jewish Democratic Council, Mike seemed awash in memories inspired by the disco beats playing in the church-come-club that played host to the event.

“I just want to know one thing. How many of you remember when this was Limelight?” asked the Mayor. His eyes sparkled as he reminisced about the time “before the press started following me around and I could have a little more fun.”

Afterwards a comedian joked that “Mike Bloomberg and I are both Jewish and Freddy Ferrer and I both don’t have any money” but the roused crowd seemed more taken with the Mayor than the entertainment.

“That was the best speech he’s ever made,” said Jewish shock jock Aaron Braunstein.
