The Strange Immunity of John Lindsay

September 1975
National Review;9/26/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 37, p1040
The author comments on the apparent absence of criticism against New York City Mayor John Lindsay despite his failure to fulfill his promise of reducing the city's budget by $300 million. The author believes that this is attributed to Lindsay's roster of influential supporters, who include Barbra Streisand and John Hay Whitney, and that Lindsay's administration has failed despite his supporters.
