NYC dodges bullet from Spitzer, poised to take one from De Blasio

No, there will not be any off-color jokes about Spitzer (or Weiner) here.

I leave that to the NY Post; they seem to possess a bottomless pit of double-entendres.

(I will say, though, that during the NY mayoral primary election, I had been approaching NYC newsstands with caution, as I don’t really enjoy reading headlines while some stranger leers in my direction, as though we are sharing the latest crude “joke.”)
