Robbins: "Michael Bloomberg's Velvet Coup"

"Is Mayor Mugabe an outrageous comparison?" asks Tom Robbins of the Village Voice.

City Council Members Letitia James and Bill de Blasio have filed suit to block the Council's scheduled vote tomorrow to overturn voter-imposed term limits and give Mayor Mike Bloomberg (and many others) a shot at another term. (Update: it failed, but an amendment will be offered to the bill tomorrow, asking the council to approve a referendum.)
