Mexico City Mayor hands out free Viagra to elderly men. Michael Bloomberg gives New Yorkers trees. It doesn’t require much effort to make the analogy.

The government is handing out free Viagra to poor men, the New York Times reported.
If you are 60 and over, poor, and need a little extra excitement in your love life, Mexico City just might be the place to be.
“Everyone has the right to be happy,” Mexico City’s mayor, Marcelo Ebrard, told the New York Times.
The New York Times also reported:
Ebrard is up for re-election in July, and this little Viagra move might just help him get re-elected.
Ebrard not only is giving out Viagra, he’s also dumping sand at public pools to create beaches and turning major roads into bike paths on Sundays. He’s staged a “kiss-in” on Valentine’s Day to increase awareness of domestic violence. He’s built the largest skating rink in the world.
But it’s the Viagra that has many men excited.
“Now, I’m able to fulfill my wife,” Mr. Posadas, a grandfather of six, told the paper.
Angel Posadas Sandoval, 74, was a little more vague, but still got his point across by telling the paper, “things have changed.”
He added, “I’ll enjoy whatever time I have left.”
