The skit was funny but the topic was serious. Participants said they were thankful that LICH is still open despite SUNY's numerous illegal attempts to shut it down.
Santa drew up a list of the naughty and the nice -- Gov. Cuomo got a big lump of coal in his stocking, along with the whole SUNY gang and the DOH. The "nice" included Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, state Supreme Court Justices Baynes and Demarest, Patients for LICH, NYSNA, 1199SEIU, community groups and their lawyers, patients, the local press and elected officials.
