Ed Koch

Neo and Professor Jacobson have thoughts on the passing of Ed Koch.

I certainly didn't agree with him on a lot of things, but he was a likeable character who seemed to be decent and principled.The nations political discourse is much diminished by his loss. Additionally, it should not be forgotten that long before his entry into politics he was serving his country at the Battle of the Bulge.

  Mayor Koch with the tombstone he bought some time ago. which contains the last words of Journalist Daniel Pearle "My father is Jewish, my mother is Jewish, I am Jewish." It also contains a prayer from Deuteronomy: "Hear, O Israel: the Lord is our God, the Lord is one,"

Godspeed Mayor Koch. May you rest in peace.

UPDATE: The NYT has released a video interview with the late Mayor that he'd asked not to be aired until after his death.
