Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch — a combative, three-term leader largely credited with saving the city from dire financial straits — died early Friday morning at the age of 88.
Rep. Thomas Massie challenged President Obama to roll out the proof that humans have played a hand in climate change.
Spokesman George Artz said he passed at 2 a.m. and the funeral is set for Monday, according to the media report.
Mr. Artz says Mr. Koch has praised the chocolate milkshakes at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia hospital as delicious, but not worth the hospital stay.
