Sanitation doesn’t deserve an ‘A’

It is clear from anyone who lives in Queens that the city Sanitation Department failed miserably in last week’s snowstorm and did not follow its own operating procedures for snow removal, as it has done in other large snowstorms of the past.

Queens residents saw the absence of snowplows for two days or more after the storm ended and now must listen to Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty tell the media that he gives his department an “A” for snow removal.

It is unimaginable what a “D” would be in Doherty’s fantasy world. We do live in an “Alice in Wonderland” world, where fantasy is reality. Will Doherty tell us that the sky is red or the moon is made of cheese?

At least we can be thankful that Mayor Michael Bloomberg did not choose him as our city schools chancellor.
