The Tenant vs. the Rabbi

Over at Volokh, David Bernstein points out the incredible arrogance of a rent controlled tenant shown in an article from the New York Times.

As David notes:
Quote from a typical abuser of New York's anti-landlord legal system: "If I lose this apartment, I leave New York. Why should they lose me just because the rabbi wants this apartment for his own use?"

Umm, how about because the Rabbi owns the apartment? And I, for one, think New York would be much better off without you.

Rent control is a holdover from (get this) World War II. And it should have gone out with sugar rationing.
