R.I.P. Ed Koch....

Rest In Peace

Edward Irving Koch
December 12, 1924 – February 1, 2013

 “I’m the sort of person who will never get ulcers,” ..... “Why? Because I say exactly what I think. I’m the sort of person who might give other people ulcers.” 

And this is why people on my side of the political divide could like, admire and respect Ed Koch, even as we adamantly disagreed with him.


  1. If you operate from a basis of honesty - people can be uncomfortable with you and can disagree with you, but they generally admire you.

    Which is why Obama is so despised and why so many find him despicable.

  2. Amen LA.

    Koch was in that small league including gents like Joe Lieberman, with who I almost never agree but rather admire. I'll miss hizzoner.
