Re ‘DeBlasio’s Wife . . .’

by Jay Nordlinger

Puts one in mind of Caesar’s wife, I know. Alec, I don’t like the new administration in New York very much. I’ve made this clear, in a post or two (or 20). But there’s one thing I do like, and you mentioned her: Rachel Noerdlinger. She’s to be the chief of staff to Chirlane McCray (i.e., Mrs. de B.). You will not find a lovelier woman than Rachel. We aren’t related by blood, and we’re separated by that “e” of hers — Rachel nods to the original umlaut. But we’re siblings under the skin. I only wish she were a Republican — then again, the Democratic party could use people like her. (So could we all, truthfully.)
