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.
