In a statement to the Forward, Sal Albanese said: “I think we’ve got to stop making this a good guy-bad guy issue. Everyone on both sides is trying to do what they think is best for the well-being of our kids. While I have my concerns, I’m open to bringing doctors and community members to the table to revisit the current policy.”

In a February interview with this reporter, Mr. Albanese said he would not override Mayor Bloomberg’s regulation on Metziztah B’peh if elected mayor, seeing it as a sole health issue reason. Hence, he would not be against looking it over.

  1. Catsimatidis used to spray dye coloring on his fruits and vegetables at Gristedes to conceal they were rotten inside from the unsuspecting public. Talk about non Kosher he received fines for selling rotting meat and fish. This is not the man I want for my mayor.

  2. The Western world is menaced by lunatics focused on New York City as the center of their hate. Real estate prices collapsed years ago and have not recovered. Illegitimacy and single motherhood are soaring. Literacy rates are plunging. Children's attention spans have shrunk to the 140 characters in a twitter post. People are even drinking way too much soda.
    In the face of ALL THESE ISSUES, is it really necessary to find a Yid somewhere doing something many people think is ridiculous, and demand that all mayoral candidates in Gotham denounce that particular practice? Is this a reasonable expenditure of anybody's time?
