Ed Koch Was Candid, Funny, Studious, Says Former Congress Legislative Assistant Bob Weiner; His Conversations With Bella Abzug Legendary

We stayed friends.  After he left Congress and while I then worked in other Hill positions and the White House, I visited him in City Hall when he became Mayor, we spoke and emailed regularly and co-authored three opeds together in the last few years.  My wife and I had dinner with him at Sardi's in New York under his photo a couple years ago – we have a picture of that on my wall. 

To the end, he loved doing movie reviews and political issue commentaries and sending those to his thousands of friends.  He still did TV and radio interviews which remained in his candid, earthy, substantive style.  I will miss him, as will all his friends.
