An Observation

One thing I really do not get is why at almost every TV-broadcast announcement that comes from the NYS government and/or the NYC Mayor's office, there is a huge crowd of bureaucrats in the background. Do these people think this is a rap video? Or a hangout of some sort?

Here's a suggestion, if someone is hanging out in the background but is not talking to the press, please fire them on the spot. Clearly, they have nothing better to do, and are, hence, a waste of taxpayer money.

And while you're at it, ban police, fire, ambulance and garbage truck idling unless the vehicle is actually moving/about to move. My non-scientific fuel savings estimate is 20%.
