I really wish that more politicians were like him. From the NY Times:
Edward Koch, Former Mayor of New York, Dies at 88
Edward I. Koch, the master showman of City Hall, who parlayed shrewd political instincts and plenty of chutzpah into three tumultuous terms as mayor of New York with all the tenacity, zest and combativeness that personified his city of golden dreams, died Friday morning at age 88.
Mr. Koch’s spokesman, George Arzt, said the former mayor died at 2 a.m. from congestive heart failure. He was being treated at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia hospital.
A long (8 pages) and wonderful read — Koch was a force of nature.Posted by DaveH at February 1, 2013 11:22 AM
