I just got off the phone with Bill de Blasio

Bill de Blasio just called me. He asked me if I would serve as his Chair of the Taxi and Limousine Commission.  I thanked him and told him it would not be possible because I will be getting a lot of dental work done this year. 

Hr said "I'm sorry to hear that. Gene, I would have appreciated your service. Do you mind if I run a couple of ideas by you?"

"Fire away Bill." I replied.

"Gene  what do you think about rainbow  colored taxis that could only pick up in Chelsra?"

I told him it might be good politics but it would not be good policy.

He told me that if I were to change my mind I could always give him a call.
