Giuliani. Bill Thompson, a former city comptroller who placed a distant second in last Tuesdays Democratic primary, conceded the race to de Blasio before all of the votes had been counted. There had been intense pressure from fellow Democrats to avert what could have been a bruising runoff. More from PostPolitics Fighting Obamacare, again Ed O’Keefe Yes, theres a budget proposal and an energy bill on the docket.

New York he ads toward divisive mayoral race

But I dont think inserting their bile so prominently into this kind of coverage is working. Dave with 6 friends said something racist? Does it make a sound? Give me the old way, when the only people forced to know about these things were the unfortunates who were in the living room with him. Now that kind of hateful muttering winds up online and somehow merits a national reaction from its target. And, frankly, it doesnt. When we first set foot on the moon, the news article was not Neil Armstrong walks on moon, numerous Americans in the privacy of their living rooms complain that I dont like that fellows looks. John Glenn orbits the Earth, bunch of people complain about that dubious Scotsman. Thomas Jefferson pens Declaration of Independence, thousands wonder whether that ginger can be trusted. This is not the story. I really hoped, after we wound up making an 11 year-old boy comment on the racist tweets that greeted his performance of the national anthem, that we might have taken a second to think, You know, maybe the best way of dealing with this kind of comment is not to dignify it by rubbing it in the face of the person who just did a nice thing for us.

Thus far he has been one of the hardest workers in training camp, and new bench boss Alain Vigneault has been impressed with what he has seen. Via Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News , Today you watched him in the (on-ice) testing, he was the first guy in line, Vigneault continued. You could tell that his skating was real good. To me, he looks real positive, and he looks like he’s got a lot of energy. So I think he’s looking forward to the challenge that’s coming up with this season, and he seems like he wants to lead the troops, and that’s what we want him to do. Richards is looking to have a bounce back year, and he has shown thus far that he is ready for the 2013-14 season. He is currently in line to be a top-six center, and the Rangers will need a rejuvenated Richards if they want to be a Stanley Cup contender. Oscar Lindberg Oscar Lindberg has turned out to be a great diamond in the rough for the Blueshirts. The Swedish pivot was originally drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft by the Phoenix Coyotes , and he was acquired in a trade that sent prospect Ethan Werek to the Phoenix desert dogs. Last season Lindberg was the playoff MVP in the SEL, and he has had a great training camp. Lindberg was tied for the lead in team scoring at the Traverse City prospect tournament, and he is competing for an opening night roster spot. The 6’0″ center could be a great asset for the Rangers this season, and he has a ton of potential.
