New York City Council Member Joe Borelli, who represents Staten Island, tweeted that he wouldn’t have wanted to spend his 40th birthday “anywhere else.” Where did he celebrate? Not the soft sands of Midland Beach, nor Antonio’s Gourmet Salumeria, nor the lawns of Mount Loretto. Borelli wouldn’t want to be anywhere but Crete, as in Greece. And after the week we’ve had in New York City, can you blame him? Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin was attacked with a cat keychain at a campaign event, and way over on the other end of the political spectrum, an online spat between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and state Sen. Jessica Ramos had progressives crying uncle. Wouldn’t we all like to take some time away from it all?
