Word: Great mayoral snow thoughts

Mayor James Curley, Boston: The lord brought it; let the lord take it away

Mayor Marion Barry, DC - Not long after Marion Barry took office in the 1970s, the Post's Milton Coleman rode the streets with the mayor after a snowstorm. Barry, who had just returned from a four-day vacation in Miami, told Coleman: 'There are more important things for me to worry about than snow. . .' He was asked how people should get to work. Barry said they should take the bus. It was pointed out that the buses weren't running. Said Barry: 'They can walk.' He added: 'There must be 5000 streets in the District of Columbia. You can't clean them all.'"

Mayor Jimmy Griffin, Buffalo -
Relax, stay inside and grab a six-pack.
