To paraphrase Hank Williams. George you gotta go because New York is short of money and full of idiocy. Let me explain:
New York’s City Council — which just passed a budget that’s already been deemed a flop — is now spending some of its time advancing a plan that could kill off monuments honoring figures such as George Washington.
The Democratic-led council’s Cultural Affairs Committee is set to hold a public hearing Tuesday on a proposal to yank artworks from city property dedicated to historical figures such as George Washington, Peter Stuyvesant, and Christopher Columbus because of their controversial pasts.
Son of a gun, as Hank would say, there are some crazy people running the Big Apple.
