    And it deserves the HRs it has gotten.

    As a longtime Staten Islander- for 45 of my 50 years- you know nothing about NYC, and even less about this island.

    I'll make this short as others have said what I would like, but for all the devastation that the storm brought, it affected a relatively small portion of our 60 square miles in any sort of long term fashion.  Of our 500,000 residents, the overwhelming majority were effected by the storm by little more than losing power for many hours.  

    That does not denigrate the  needs of those who are still displaced, have no homes, lost businesses, and so on.  But you make it sound like the entire island was destroyed and nothing will be done until all the white people leave.

    That makes you a bigot, a racist, and most of all, an asshole.

      Your subject line means the opposite of what it appears you intended.

      beyond reproach
      So good as to preclude any possibility of criticism.
