Bloomberg's Reaction

Fred Siegel, writing on the Manhattan Institute blog, says Mike Bloomberg’s reaction to the Cory Lidle plane crash in midtown is “demonstrating the insouciance he made famous during the prolonged Queens blackout…”

During his weekly radio address, Bloomberg responded to the calls for tighter flight restrictions around NYC airspace:

The trouble is in our society, anytime anything goes wrong we add a level of checks. The trouble is every time you add another level of security it doesn’t necessarily improve the level of security. It may very well make it so complex that it makes it less secure or less efficient or less reliable…Rushing to the microphone and saying you want to do something: leave it to the professionals.
