Join the Club

James J. Walker. William O'Dwyer. William Magear Tweed. Michael Bloomberg.

Though hardly a sentimentalist about New York history, in one way Bloomberg perfectly embodies one great old New York tradition: corruption at the highest levels of government. (And that's the sunniest outlook I can take on this whole thing.)

I have thrown in a picture of Judge Crater, below, just for fun.
