Mike Bloomberg Like, So Sorry You Had To Sit In The Dark For A Week. Not.

Mike Bloomberg does sarcasm:

"I think in retrospect I probably made one mistake here," Mr. Bloomberg said, as dozens of reportorial ears suddenly pricked up. "The mistake I made was not going out and irresponsibly attacking a company that as far as I can tell had an accident that befell them that they didn't deliberately cause and I didn't go and scream at them in a ways that would keep them from focusing on doing what they should have done, returning the power as quickly as possible."

Were we to do sarcasm, we'd suggest that the mayor look toward his native Boston, where public officials take the fall for terrible events that occur upon their watch, but we're not those kind of people. Also, we're trying to save energy in case our power goes out.
