From the Times today:
After more than two decades, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and one of his earliest business partners, Merrill Lynch, are parting company in a deal that places a public value on the mayor’s private company, Bloomberg L.P.
That figure: At least $22.5 billion.
Gothamist reported yesterday that Mayor Bloomberg had an approval rating of 71 percent. To which Gothamist commenter Bingosbackup responded, "I think that's supposed to be 7.1 %."
