Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch Dead at 88

He was the quintessential New Yorker, and the New York Times does him justice in this obituary, "Edward Koch, Former Mayor of New York, Dies at 88."

And at Twitchy, "Photo: Ed Koch’s headstone quotes Daniel Pearl’s final words; Update: Koch and Pearl both died Feb. 1."

Lots more at Memeorandum.

I admired him a lot. A good Democrat and patriotic American. RIP.
