i am SO sick of hick joe sullivan's crap. why are you listening to that man? he's insane. he's got a problem with everything including our new president-ridiculous. you don't like here in the US then do us a favor and move to Canada and then you can start your own column there that no one here will have to read and you can rant and rave as wish there. you remind me of that preacher that no one wants to listen to when they say we're all going to hell. i'm not going to be really mean here and not say the typical following statement, but rather beg mr. sullivan to stop bombarding the capital region residents with his information. you are one opinion. if you care so much to report on things, do it fairly and go into the reporting profession if you're that ambitious.
