Is Mayor Bloomberg's secret strategy "no publicity is bad publicity?" At NYU's commencement, he called fellow honoree Joe Torre "Joe Torrez." Jeez, even Gothamist knows that's wrong. Newsday also reports that a "handful of graduates stood and turned their backs on the mayor as he spoke protesting a gaggle of issues, from homeless policies to social-service cutbacks to certain university investments." Gothamist would like to know if anyone was smoking.
NY1 on the ceremony and the "chilly" reception the Mayor received.
