A New Federal Department of Cities? February 17, 2013

Oh good grief.  Don’t we already have a Department of Housing and Urban Development, Mr. Florida?  As C.

Veterans’ Affairs should not be its own department, for example.

From the article: “Just imagine what a Mike Bloomberg could accomplish as America’s first Secretary of Cities.”

Just imagine: Churches in every city would be banned from paying rent to use school auditoriums on Sunday.
