Late Night: A Big Yellow Taxi for Rudy and Judith

Diana Taylor, Mayor Bloomberg's significant other doesn't use the NYPD as her personal taxi service...why did taxpayers have to foot the bill for the NYPD to ferry Judith Nathan around?

Taylor, 52, takes the bus every day to her midtown office and rides the subway to business appointments. In the six years Taylor and Bloomberg have lived together, she said she has never had reason to want or need personal NYPD security.

"I don't have security in Bogota or Nairobi or Moscow when I travel there on business, why would I need security in the safest city in the world?" Taylor told the Daily News yesterday.

Unlike Nathan, Taylor "has acted as the city's unofficial First Lady, frequently marching with Bloomberg in parades, hosting Gracie Mansion social functions and campaigning with him."

    Some people aren't comfortable in the limelight. Personally I wouldn't hold it against them.

    IF Judi needed protection before 9/11, surely Diana needs it even more now!
