New York City's women and men in blue were treated to a wonderful annual gala, which celebrated their hard work and heroism in difficult situations. Super popular Jon Stewart hosted the event, who had attendees laughing the night away before the gala moved on to awards and an unbelievable caught-on-camera apprehension of some serious criminals by the awarded Cop of the Year Ivan Marcano.

In the kind of grand-scale symbolism achievable only in this great city of ours, ordinary folks throughout Manhattan might have surmised from the Empire State Building being gussied up in blue, with red and white on the tippy-top (cop car, siren), that the swells who support the New York City Police Foundation were putting on their annual shindig last Thursday.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and others posed for glam shots on the red carpet at the Waldorf-Astoria, and on the minds of all those who’d gathered for pre-dinner cocktails—New York’s Finest in their finest, drinking gin and tonics, chardonnay and (yes!) Coors Light—was one pressing question:
