Ferrer: He's Kinda Like That Weird American Apparel Guy

You kids with your celebrities and your general-interest magazines, I think you could all use a little more civic involvement. How many of you know there's a war going on? Did you vote in the primaries? When the hell are the primaries? Let's catch up on local politics, shall we?

Hey, here's some exciting news: Jerry Nadler might run for mayor! He's either a congressman or the guy who wrestled Andy Kaufman. Either way, the New York Democratic Party promises to make the campaign a dreary, unfunny conceptual joke.

The Times knows what you want in political coverage:

"It is our prediction that during a Ferrer administration, more and more New Yorkers will begin sporting mustaches as well."

Nice to see the public health-minded Times testing their readers for prefrontal brain damage. -AP
