According to what I read in a New York Times article, Speaker Quinn directs her fury, intimidation and retaliation at people who are not sufficiently grateful and deferential to her or who put forward ideas which deviate from the Quinn agenda. I am no puritan when it comes to salty language, but I would much prefer a Mayor who is enraged by injustice, by racial, income, housing and medical treatment inequities. Ms. Quinn’s attacks are provoked by slights to her ego. I would like a Mayor who might use anger to defend the well-being of the people of the City of New York. I would like a Mayor who calmly and thoughtfully works out differences of opinion with his staff and other concerned citizens. Ms Quinn punished senior citizens and cut funds for a youth sports league because of a perceived slight to her by a City Councilwoman. Ms Quinn punished people who are weak, who can’t fight back, people who are in need of the protection of City government, and who themselves did her no harm, just to get back at someone who did not thank her enough publicly. I do not think Ms Quinn is emotionally or intellectually qualified to be Mayor of New York.
