Say it isn’t so!
In (one of) my I’m-in-charge fantasies, I kick the UN out of NYC. As someone who spent 14 years doing international aid work, I came to heartily loathe and despise the UN as a bunch of overpaid bureaucrats who do more harm than good. Think about it – if they actually solved any problems, they’d all be out of jobs. So their real challenge is to make the problems worse, so they can extend their work and bring in their friends and relatives.
I’m not joking.
Anyway, they want to build a brand spanking shiny new UN building in NYC and last summer, apparently, Congress approved the land sale. We’ll pick up the tab for at least a quarter of it, maybe more.
They’re never going to leave.
