Despite the backlash he received from his absence during the epic blizzard in December, Mayor Bloomberg will be giving a speech in Oklahoma tomorrow when New York is ravaged by earthquakes and the dead rise from their graves and start pawing at everyone with their gross dead-people hands. "You're going to be criticized in the newspapers," radio host John Gambling quipped today. Bloomberg, in a preemptive bid to mollify his critics, has decided to suspend alternate-side parking in the event of Judgment Day. [NYDN]
