After Sandy ... Athena?

Oh, and one more note. Lest anyone think that my criticism, both at the time and in retrospect, of Mayor Bloomberg's decision to delay the evacuation of "Zone A" until just hours before the subways closed -- and to order no evacuation of "Zone B" -- is an academic point, check out the response to this Eric Holthaus tweet yesterday:

But yeah, totally, let's lionize Bloomberg -- who advised Zone B residents that they didn't need to evacuate, even when there was a clear threat of catastrophic flooding -- declaring his performance "sterling," and hell, let's make him president while we're at it. Awesome.
