Other than Ray Kelly, what police commissioner on God's green earth could keep his job after the avalanche of police scandals in New York City last week?
There have been rumors that the police commissioner might run for mayor despite the mess at the Police Department. The last thing New York needs is another burned-out chief executive.
No wonder Police Commissioner Ray Kelly refuses to release his public schedule. He might have to answer questions about why wealthy and powerful people are meeting with him.
Maybe there's still time to get a New Yorker into the GOP race. How could a state with so many politicians, political junkies and political hangers-on fail to field even an 11th hour vanity candidate?
For first time since 9/11, some elected officials had the courage to grill Police Commissioner Ray Kelly about his secretive anti-terrorism policies. Surprise, surprise, those officials did not include Mayor Bloomberg.

What lessons can New Yorkers draw from the Rupert Murdoch phone-hacking scandal in England? What lessons can we draw about the NYPD?
How bad does the imploding case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn look for law enforcement in New York City? Let us count the ways.
After a decade playing footsie with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, the New York Press Club awarded its top prize to a hard-hitting series that exposed how the NYPD's lack of transparency harms the public.
Another full-court press conference on terror. Another terrorism air ball. That's the tale of the tape in last week's indictments of Ahmed Ferhani and Mohamed Mamdouh, two alleged "lone wolf" terrorists.
Proving its friendliness to the media yet again, the New York City Police Foundation couldn't get through its annual fundraiser earlier this month without attempting to hold a reporter hostage.
Ray Kelly's tepid response to allegations that the NYPD has leaked damaging information about the sexual assault case of International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn is out of character.
Two New York State legislators have proposed a simple, effective legislative fix to New York City's 15-year marijuana arrest craze that would strike from the law the misdemeanor for marijuana possession of less than an ounce.
