Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who rarely shows emotion (unless it is annoyance at reporters or anger at the Board of Elections), reportedly choked up during his eighth and final speech to the Association for a Better New York. It was when he mentioned his unborn grandson and the inscription on the Statue of Liberty, "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses," that his voice quivered, according to the New York Post. "That is what I want ... for my little grandson and all the generations to come," he said. So the third terminator is human after all.
