News Item: Mayor Bloomberg is meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to urge her to help keep the United Nations in New York City. The United Nations is looking for a temporary home while its historic headquarters overlooking the East River get a $1.2 billion renovation, but there has been speculation the world body might look for a permanent home elsewhere.
Dear Madame Secretary:
You might point out to the UN types that real estate in New York City is expensive and becoming more so, and inasmuch as the UN has consistently maintained that global warming is a fact, presenting the possibility that in not too many years Manhattan might be flooded, the organization would be wise to look for that alternate headquarters. Given its priorities in recent years, I suggest the West Bank of the river Jordan.
Oh, by the way: love the burgundy suit.
