Boruch Rofeh Cholim: Ex-Mayor Ed Koch Leaves Hospital December 10, 2012  1:43 pm

ed-kochFormer New York Mayor Ed Koch has been released from a Manhattan hospital.

Koch looked jovial as he spoke briefly today outside NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He was admitted last week with pneumonia and flu.

He said he planned to go to his office briefly, then do some reading at home.

On Friday, Koch said through a spokesman that he was looking forward to celebrating his 88th birthday this Wednesday. He’ll be at an annual reunion with members of his administration at Gracie Mansion, the official mayor’s residence.

Koch also was hospitalized with anemia in September.

Koch served three terms from 1978 to 1989. The Democrat is famous for asking constituents, “How’m I doing?”

If Ed would have said Boruch Rofeh Cholim that would be newsworthy. If you had to put the words into his mouth, however, it is sad.

I have a lot of respect for this site but to suggest that one apply the brocho of Boruch Rofeh Cholim on this noiaf and baal aveira, I think is a little misguided on the part of Matzav, and maybe worse.

I think that the fact that Hashem keeps him around this long is a sure sign that He doesn't want him anywhere in Olam Haba.
