Deputy Mayor Skyler Doesn’t Just Have a Star Wars Name

By

We don't know why the Times profile of deputy mayor Ed Skyler got hated on so much. We liked it! And not only because of our well-known affinity for heroes, but also because it contained this gem: "When he is not working, Mr. Skyler, who is single, enjoys hip-hop music and film, especially the Star Wars movies. [Friend Vivek J. Tiwary] recalled he and Mr. Skyler attending screenings of Star Wars re-releases: “We would be there on opening night, we never dressed up in the costumes, but we were a few notches below that.” Did you see the way reporter Michael Barbaro snuck "who is single" right up in there? Ladies, he's tall and heroic — strike while the iron's hot! [NYT]
