Farcical awards

Brooklyn Museum giving Bruce Ratner an award for “service to the community?” A farce fit for a protest, to be sure.

A little ironic that the protest was staged by Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn (DDDB) since the group no more represents the greater non-white, non-brownstone Brooklyn community than Mr. Ratner.

When does DDDB get an award of its own for defending the property rights of million dollar homeowners? That takes guts for a bunch of progressive Dems.
