    I will crawl over broken glass to vote for Tish James on Tuesday. She is a fighter. I only wish that the Public Advocate post was a more powerful one.

      I think you don't have to go THAT far...just get to your polling place on Tuesday and take a few friends and neighbors with you.

      By the way, during this campaign I have been learning that to some degree that "Public Advocate has no power" meme is something of a creation of those who held that office and didn't do anything. Truth is PA can propose legislation in the City Council and makes several appointments to committees and boards in the city. It is true that from the start it was a bit vague and Bloomberg weakened it, but the PA position is to some degree powerless these days because the last two holders of the position WANTED it to be powerless and just wanted it for their resume.

      I think we will see more from Tish than we have seen since Mark Green.

      FREEDOM ISN'T FREE: That's why we pay taxes! Hey...I had a thought!
