An exemplary action by a citizen working in conjunction with police to quickly apprehend this suspect and return all of the stolen property to the Nun. You couldn't ask for a better outcome. Bravo to Mark Leszczynski and the Schenectady police!

No one currently in Senate or Assembly wants to take up the reform mantle when it comes to their own salary, part-time status or health benefits. Very few people who run for office make reforms of this nature their campaign issue. So when you have these politicians that are able to enrich themselves with the rules that they write and vote on, there's no hope of reining in their lavish compensation.

I wouldn't call a $30.5 million rebate for taxpayers, "Little Change" or the fact that crime has gone down in Colorado. These dynamics have been closely scrutinized by the opponents of legalize as their dire predictions haven't come to fruition and they most likely never will. So far Colorado's experiment has been a success.

pnotto, it's a fact that society's acceptance of discrimination aimed at gays and lesbians is diminishing. Thankfully, your hateful, ignorant, judgmental rants won't have any affect that change. And do you know the concept of brevity?

The shift toward same-sex marriage isn't a left/right issue when you poll millenniums on the issue. Bigots who want to deny equal marriage rights are dwindling in positions of influence and power. Those who are unable to evolve as the world changes can cling to their beliefs, but their views will soon become antiquated as they become a footnote of history.
The pastor's exiting of this church makes a powerful statement against intolerance. I hope others in his position follow his example.

A few years ago, I was part of an audience to hear Ray Gillen's plan for Schenectady and Metroplex. At that time, he promised that once the main corridor of downtown was revitalized and complete, his focus for Metroplex would shift to residential housing. Well, it's about time he stick to his plan.

I would like to see a poll that asks this question: Would you be willing to pay a little more for your fast food items in order for those FF workers are able to earn a livable wage? My inclination is that if the issue were framed this way, the public would support raising the minimum wage. The corporations that run these business will certainly pass this cost on to the consumer, but if the public is willing to absorb that increase, why not just do the right thing for the workers who make the business viable.
These corporations don't seem to have any problem paying their CEOs and upper management 400x the rate of their employees who are just seeking to make ends meet. Gluttony should not be treated as virtue despite the fact that many corporations embrace it at the expense of their lower end workers.

The biggest disappointment in Gone Girl was the unbelievable manner is which Amy reunites with former troubled boyfriend, Dez with a one-in-a-million chance meeting. The plot is hinged together with this hokey device that is unfortunately has become all too common in the story line of many of today's movies. The way that this scene was just glossed over made it impossible for me to suspend my disbelief from that point on. It seems that you and other critics were so engrossed with the plot and how or if it followed the book's version that you've all overlooked this major flaw in Gone Girl. I haven't read the book but I will now just to see how the book explains this small but critical detail of the story.

How is Al Sharpton able to meddle and pull the strings of the Obama Administration while at the same time host a nightly cable show? And how does MSNBC allow this racebaiter to get away with such a blatant conflict of interest? Whenever a TV personality announces their decision to run for political office, the very next thing they do is step down from their position in the media. Sharpton's behind-the-scenes role of influencing policy is much more grievous. He has single-handedly destroyed what little creditability that fledgling network had left.

The families of the victims had sympathy for the defendant and that factor played a significant role in the light sentence. This result hardly sends a message of deterrence for other boaters who might be faced with the decision to drink and ride. This man was responsible for the deaths of two young people who had their entire lives ahead of them. He should have received a much longer sentence.
