Finger-pointing is childish, reflects badly on the mayor As a parent, I always taught my children that whenever one points a finger at someone, one points three at oneself. Mr. [Schenectady Mayor Gary] McCarthy should learn the same lesson. At the March 11 City Council meeting, the mayor again blamed the city’s financial woes on Union College.

Mayor Gary Mccarthy has been watching too many Obama made up telepromptor speeches. What King Gary has learned is , blame, blame, blame and don't take responsibility for what he has caused. From everything I know and have been told, he was not a good investigator, he was a terrible councilman and now he is a terrible mayor. Let's see if the Gazette continues on their quest to stop the truth and delete this comment too.

The first time Gary McCarthy crossed my radar, I said to myself, "Political Hack"......nothing he's said done has changed my opinion.......He's a beady-eyed sleaze ball, and he and his ilk represent everything that's wrong with politics...JMHO

James Retajczyk, In response to your letter. I can't agree with what you wrote more! Having been an instructor in Safe Snowmobile Operation Courses put on by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. And having been a Park Police Officer, I too have seen too many instances of people who own snowmobiles being east side of a horse going west! (to put it politely). Many of those doing the dumb stuff, I ticketed for those violations, unfortunately, there is not law against stupid.

If only our downstate legislators would take the time to equate the Automobile with the snowmobile, them maybe a quickly pushed through bill much like the SAFE Act, would go through banning cars and trucks thus eliminating many of the accidents on our roads that kill and/or maime so many people each, would eliminate all drunk driving related accidents, because those figures haven't reduced that much over the years, and car/pedestrian/small child accidents haven't been reduced that much either. So downstate legislators and Mr. Governor, maybe that is what you needed to do instead of aiming at your poorly conceived gun legislation. Take aim at cars and trucks on the roads. Outlaw them first and see what happens first. Before going after the state's LAW ABIDING GUN OWNERS!
