RIP Ed Koch

Thanks to Bethany.

Ed Koch via Huffpo: On my tombstone, which awaits me at the Trinity Church nondenominational cemetery at 155th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, I had inscribed the last words of Daniel Pearl -- uttered at his publicly viewed murder -- which were, "My father is Jewish. My mother is Jewish. I am Jewish." I believe those words should be part of the annual services on the Jewish High Holiday of Yom Kippur, and should be repeated by the congregants.
Ironically Mr. Koch passed away today on the 10th anniversary of the Murder of Daniel Pearl, may God rest his soul.
