Quote of the Day – The Governor of NY on the Stabbing of a Muslim Cab Driver in NYC

“In the wake of the alleged hate crime against a New York City taxi driver, I must take this opportunity to remind New Yorkers that we cannot and will not allow bias and ignorance to infect our communities and deny our hard working, innocent residents the respect they deserve.

The potential for this kind of violence is one of the reasons why I have called publicly for a respectful and unifying conversation about the Park51 project. I continue to offer my assistance for an open dialogue that I believe will help to bring New Yorkers together.”

– Gov. David Paterson (D) using this opportunity to push his plan to get the Park51 project to change locations.

So I guess the Governor and the Mayor are on different planets. Me, I’ll side with the Mayor.
