Bloomberg Says Plow Failure Is "Character Building" - Gothamist:

"This year is not ending the way I would have preferred, but it's still been a good year. Nobody has a career that goes straight up," he glumly pronounced.

We're sure those disgruntled people stuck on unplowed streets are very pleased to know that this is all about your personal growth
