‘Mining magnate Henry Krumb left millions to Columbia University in the 1950s, but you’d have to dig deep to find the cash or his legacy today. . . . Krumb’s wishes were to “make the School of Mines one of the best known and largest schools of its kind in the world,” according to a copy of his will obtained by The Post.’
But today there is no school of mines, no scholarships, no degrees, and no one filling the endowed chairs of mining. Reminds me of the Met scandal.

Saying judges who try to run city agencies from the bench “don’t have the competency to do it,” Bloomberg tore into federal justice Shira Scheindlin for limiting police tactics that he insists have made the city safer.
“What does she know about policing? Absolutely zero,” Bloomberg said on his weekly radio appearance. “Your safety and the safety of your kids is now in the hands of some woman who does not have the expertise to do it.”
“It’s easy for somebody in a court to say ‘Oh [the cop] should have done this or should have done this,’” Bloomberg added. “The public has got to step back and say ‘Wait a second, there’s something really wrong here. It’s not the job of the judges to run agencies.’”
Oh, wait: Bloomberg was SOBER when he said this. My bad.
