Thank you vocal Democrats. To the Republican House leadership: bring bills to the floor so legislators from both parties can debate and vote. To all of you: You represent the people, not the lobbies. And the people say it's high time for common-sense gun legislation, including restrictions on assault weapons.

Reporter Zachary Matson is an excellent writer. I've been following his work on education matters and it stands out. What a great addition to the Daily Gazette team! Thank you.

To be clear, Clinton does NOT have enough pledged delegates (voters) to win the nomination. Even after the primaries are over, neither she nor Bernie Sanders will likely have enough to be declared the nominee. When is the last time this happened? That is the real news here.
.
The superdelegates -- free agents who can back whoever they want -- will not select the Democratic nominee for President until late July at the convention. So this article, picked up from the Washington Post, jumps the gun -- even if a Clinton is the probable nominee. Today California, New Jersey, etc. votes. Can The Daily Gazette at least wait until polling ends before jumping on the bandwagon with these pronouncements?

Sanders essentially tied Clinton in Kentucky (she won by 0.5%) and he beat her in Oregon by 9%. Sanders has won 3 of the last 4 primary contests with significant spreads. Shouldn't Clinton, with so much name recognition and party backing, be doing better if she wants to beat Trump in Nov? What does it mean when a "Democratic socialist" from the tiny state of Vermont is pulling out wins?

St Rose administrators cannot argue with the facts of the report -- so they "kill the messenger." That's a tired tactic. But I guess it's the best the college's very expensive public relations consultants have to offer.

I realize the importance of getting buildings on the tax rolls, but could the city be more supportive of the non-profit Edison Tech Center? Yes, I know Edison Tech had certain responsibilities under the deal they made with City Hall -- and a deal is a deal. I really don't have the answer; that would take some creativity.
.
I hope Metroplex and City Hall do not favor projects that ignore Downtown Schenectady's special character (historical, industrial, innovative, melting pot) in favor of homogenous businesses that could, frankly, be in any city. In 20 years, will Schenectady resemble just another business park, shopping mall or food court?

Yet, the colloquial "busted into the class" is more impressionistic, less prissy. I like it. Congratulations Ms. Libertucci and thank you Mr. Matson for your lively reporting. I especially appreciate having a peek into the teacher's story-writing lesson.

Do those posting the hateful comments against Muslims on an article about Islamophobia even see the irony?
.
Now is exactly when articles like this are needed. The comments here prove the point!
