Quote of the Day (Mike Bloomberg, on NYC Homeless Shelters)

“You can arrive in your private jet at Kennedy Airport, take a private limousine and go straight to the shelter system and walk in the door and we've got to give you shelter."—New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, explaining on his WOR-AM radio show that the city’s homeless shelters are so crowded because they can’t turn people away, quoted in Garth Johnston, “Bloomberg Explains Homeless Shelter Problem: You Can Take Your Limo There And Still Score A Bed,” Gothamist, March 8, 2013

Oh, yes—arriving at homeless shelters by “private jet” and “private limousine” is done all the time. I’m sure the mayor and his rich pals spend quality time there often when they’re not heading down to the Caribbean for the weekend…
