Quote of the day: Occupy Wall Street

Bloomberg:

From the beginning, I have said that the City had two principal goals: guaranteeing public health and safety, and guaranteeing the protestors’ First Amendment rights.  But when those two goals clash, the health and safety of the public and our first responders must be the priority.

My brother quips:

You know this is OK because the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution totally reads “This Constitution, and the municipal health and safety codes of New York City, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.”
