Home Movies “Koch” Premiere Will Be a Reunion of Every New York Politician Living...

This is going to be wild. I never write about movie premieres before they happen. But the one set for next week for “Koch,” the documentary about Ed Koch, is going to be a memorable one. Look at the list that follows. I hope someone films this. How can any of these people stay away? It’s too crazy. Each guest will get a rubber bat and a water pistol. Seriously. Two names I don’t see here: Rudy Giuliani and Mike Bloomberg. Also, no mention of Bess Meyerson. But still…Maybe they’ll crash…
