This evening I watched Anderson Cooper’s news program featuring Joe Molinaro, the Staten Island borough president. I was shocked to hear that Molinaro announced that people should not donate money to the Red Cross because the Red Cross wasn’t helping New Yorkers. As is turns out, Staten Island received absolutely no relief or help from the aid agencies until today. Why? Because Staten Island residents complained loudly and often to their leaders, who, in turn, got a little national press coverage. It was precisely that airtime which prodded some aid over the Verrazano Bridge and into yet another community devastated by Superstorm Sandy.
I mean, really. Those Mob Wives need our help as much as anyone else. Right?
