Hold onto your hats, because hat thieves prefer to strike while their targets are distracted by the blog posts they're reading! But also hold onto them because, whoa, Bill de Blasio's lead over Joe Lhota is down to 44 points! It was 50 points only three weeks ago! We desperately want this race to be more interesting!
