Council Goes to Bat Against the Mayor

Well it finally happened. The Council, which has stubbornly adhered to the mayor's policy agenda, has at last taken a stand against the city's chief executive. As the NY Post reports this morning, the legislature is poised to pass a ban on metal bats this Wednesday over the mayor's determined opposition.

Let's hope that this is not the last issue that the Council feels compelled to take a firm stand on against the mayoral druthers. And let's further hope that the next time it hopefully does so, it is on a policy of somewhat greater significance than the baseball bats used by our youngsters.
