This was the act of a clearly insane person. Whatever else you may think of Sharpton (and I don't think much either), everyone has been shouting peaceful protest from the beginning. Words like yours, mezz and that Mouth-that-Does-not-Think, Pat Lynch trying to take this aberration and turn it into something else only makes the situation worse and does nothing to help.
How about stop acting like armed five-year-olds, put on your big boy pants and take a grown-up view of what's happening?

Except of course Al Sharpton's very public condemnation.

Do you ever post under the alias "pnotto"?

reader1, in addressing my post you missed my point. Of course it's a 'straight shot', and at 3 in the morning it's (probably) a breeze. My point is none of those options will scale as well as the traffic volume will. Throw in some emergency vehicles and we'll see how well this has been thought out.
I can tell you first hand it's also a straight shot from Queens to Suffolk County but having made that trip a couple hundred times I'm here to say that's not all there is to it.

"Reiterating"? How about remuttering...
Wouldn't want to put all those tax-exempt properties in the public eye would we?

As far as I can tell, the only way to get to this site for an out-of-towner arriving via the Thruway is right through midtown Schenectady and that's already close to a quagmire at the rush hours. Throw in a big name live show once and a while and maybe a show at Proctors the same night and you've got the Long Island definition of a parking lot.
Glad they purtied up Erie 'cause a lot of people are going to be spending a lot of time there. Who's up for a Hoagie?

Great news! At 105' I hope some low-power LED type lighting will also be considered.

They're not. Thanks for wearing your prejudice on your sleeve where we can all see it.

"The oft-asked but never answered question.. "?
I would suggest, Mr. Kaplan, there is another oft-asked but never answered question: why do the Palestinians behave this way? God forbid Israel do any soul-searching apparently.

Thank you Mr. Deblois. You've presented a reasoned essay beyond your years. The Nationalist Zionists would do well to follow yours, and the too few other Jewish voices who understand the difference between criticism and insults. Well done sir.
