Mayor seeks to 'bury the hatchet' with Conan O'Brien

Posted: 09:24 AM ET

After a tiff that has lasted two weeks, the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, said Wednesday that he is in discussions with "Tonight Show" host Conan O'Brien to "bury the hatchet and the feud."

Mayor Cory Booker made the announcement on Wednesday's "Larry King Live" about the disagreement that started with a jab by O'Brien at the expense of New Jersey and continued into what O'Brien has called - tongue in cheek - "the biggest scandal in the country that's now involving a late-night host."

On September 23, O'Brien joked on his program that Booker's plan to improve citizens' health care in New Jersey's largest city "would consist of a bus ticket out of Newark."

The mayor fired back on YouTube, saying O'Brien was no longer welcome at Newark Liberty International Airport. "Try JFK, buddy," Booker quipped in a video that has garnered thousands of page views.

Booker said Wednesday that "Newark has now shown itself that it's not going to allow itself to be picked on by late-night talk show hosts."

WHAT IS THE BIG FUSS OVER 829 BILLION DOLLARS FOR HEALTH-CARE? BACK POCKET CHANGE WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE THREE TRILLION DOLLARS THAT WE GAVE TO THE DEVIL DAMN FRIGGING BANKS.
More than equal value will be created in goods and services for every dollar spent on health-care. We need to get off of a gold standard mentality. Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution provides all the gold mining tools needed. Money must be created before equal value can be created. Goods and Services is what has real value–not gold and silver as Adam Smith, the Father of Capitalism, tried to point out to the News Media of his time.

Just wanted to say that I have been fan of Larry King for many,many years.. The new advertising format is most disconcerting.. He says he will be back inh 60 seconds but is not..I feel it is most disrujptive to the whole show and hope you go back to the old ways. Know I am an old lady(82). I do enjoy his guests and he is wiothout a doubt one of the best interviewers.
It seems there is more advertising than before and believe me I know we must have the advertising . thank you

My father died in World War in an effort to preserve our nation's independence.. With all the negativity from the media, especially over President Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, our country appears to be in an internal turmoil. Let's be thankful for the peace in our country and for someone who is trying to lead the world in understanding the current path for peace. Plundering and destruction will not save our country; only the will to love and help one another.
