A statement to remember from NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg:

Mayor Bloomberg and his niece, Rachel Tiven

Speaking in support of gay marriage, Mayor Bloomberg uttered a 4 word phrase that I think should be spread on T-shirts and tattoos everywhere:

“Near-equality is no equality.”

Speaking at The Cooper Union, Bloomberg added:

“We are the freest city in the freest country in the world — but freedom is not frozen in time… I see the pain that the status quo is causing, and I cannot defend it”

Bloomberg was presented to the audience by his niece, Rachel Tiven, who is gay.
