"The beast is dead."

-- That's former New York City Mayor Ed Koch's reaction to (and prediction of) the news that his indirect successor and old enemy, former NYC. Mayor Rudy Giuliani, lost in Florida's Republican primary. Koch initially supported Giuliani, but their relationship soured during the latter's time as mayor, and Koch titled one of his books "Giuliani: Nasty Man."
