Kudos and a bouquet of orchids to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for rushing aid to ravaged Puerto Rico! This aid includes 34,000 bottles of water, more than 10,000 field rations, 1,400 cots, pillows and blankets, 10 generators, four Black Hawk helicopters, as well as more than 100 New York City firefighters, police officers and other workers (Thanks, Mayor Bill DeBlasio).

Additional gratitude to City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito for her assistance and support.

As Harry Truman said, "If you want to (get things done), vote for the Democrats!"
