Sworn in Over Steak

Remind me why I don’t live in New York again???

Check this out (a man after my own heart) . . .

NY: New LG Sworn in Over Steak July 10, 2009

From the NY Times:

Mr. Ravitch’s personal lawyer rushed from Manhattan to the restaurant, where the lieutenant-governor-to-be held up his right hand and recited the oath of office at 8:45 p.m., in between bites of his steak. The impromptu swearing-in made his appointment official before Republicans were able to persuade a judge on Long Island to block him from office. A waiter documented the occasion by snapping a photo with Mr. Ravitch’s wife’s cellphone.

So began the surreal journey of the 76-year-old Mr. Ravitch, who was perfectly content spending his golden years attending meetings of the various boards he sits on, running his investment consulting firm and honing his skills as an amateur woodworker.

I’m sorry, but this is classic. And bravo for not letting “official business” get in the way of a great steak dinner!!!

Now THAT is a steak enthusiast. . .
