    Mayor Bloomberg has it right, but I dare say that he not take credit for the paucity of panhandlers in the subway system. Just as crime (Guiliani seems to think he was the author of that policy) things have changed, however the conditions that create panhandlers or criminals is still in place. Now is the time to really begin to address these issues whilst they’re still manageable to some degree.God forbid that we ever become inundated with the ghosts of the past, this administration would declare “martial law”.

    Yes he’s right but he didn’t clean the subways up – Rudy Giuliani did.
