NY'ers weigh in on term limits extension

This comment is lifted from the City Room Blog of the NY Times.
The subject is term limit extensions. Mayoral Candidate Bill Thompson had a rally at City Hall to give NY'ers a chance to speak out once more on the anniversary of the overturning of term limits.
This comment sums it all up, doesn't it?

"It’s not just about how Mayor Bloomberg ordered by mayoral fiat the overturning of term limits laws, but also how he has run this city into the ground. How many accidents have taken place regarding the collapse of our infrastructure ? The Queens Blackout of 2006, the steam pipe explosion on Lexington Avenue, how many cranes keep collapsing on the streets, how many people keep getting electrocuted by Con Edison manhole covers, how many buildings and churches does NYU get to tear down, for how many more weekends will the MTA be allowed to practically shut down the entire system, for how many more years will Ground Zero remain just a pit ? What has Mayor Bloomberg done in 8 years ? What makes him think he needs another 4 ? 8 is enough ! Only someone driven by greed, selfishness, and an over-inflated ego would think he deserves more and more and more and more and more . . . ."
