For better or worse, he was my mayor. I lived in NYC for 13 years, and he was mayor for 12 of them. I still remember "Vote for Cuomo, Not the Homo," a slogan that caused me to oppose Mario when he first ran for governor (I later repented—Mario was better than a lot of folks, including his own offspring). And I doubt there was anyone in NYC at that time who didn't get a handshake and a "How'm I doing?" on the way to the subway. You were doing okay, Ed. Not great, not entirely ethical, but not bad, considering where we've been since then.
