2. of course! mitt would propose a tax incentive for people to leave burning buildings.

booker gets the incentives all wrong. now people will have an incentive to stay in burning buildings in the hope that someone famous will rescue them.

5. Before this I never heard of Mr Booker

Newark is fortunate to have such a fine person as their mayor. I hope that he stays in politics as its guys or gals like him who makes it all work.

6. Sorry you didn't know about him... he's

 

also a hero of a snowstorm, out plowing and shoveling out his elderly neighbors, stuff like that.

He is also very very liberal, the presumed next Gov of NJ, since Christie is so unpopular now.

NJ is a state that is generally moderately liberal, but a hero who can eclipse NY Mayors, who can actually go out and shovel snow, who can stand up for the rights of all people, (yes, he's gay friendly), he's a fine man, for sure.

Sorry you didn't know about him before today. Now you're informed and ready to work for him when he runs for Prez.

7. I've never heard of him either.

Perhaps not surprisingly since I'm not American. But he appears to be a genuinely impressive individual - brave and modest.

8. Being NOT American is a very reasonable excuse for

 

not knowing about him.

Cory is really only known in NY, New England, NJ and Pennsylvania so far. He's a local hero on the northeast area of the USA.

But soon he will be known worldwide. I would think about 2013,-2015 Obama and him will be on national TV, and something about crime fighting, something about mayors as hero's we will see.

I assume you are in Switzerland, (given your name), and that you know this much about American politics is admirable. You don't need to know the hundreds of great liberal mayors in our many cities. Newark, if you don't know, is almost next door to NYC in NJ, so it's close to lots of people who will take notice, about 10-20 million in those states.

9. Without a doubt

Based on who he is I'd vote for him in a New Jersey second
