It is much too early to be announcing a run for an election and primary more than a year away. One would think that the republicans would be looking for a candidate to replace Mr. Farley given his advanced age and the fact that he might not be able to complete a term. With the majority in the senate paper thin, and the democratic governor looking for ways to take over the senate, should a vacancy occur, we could see vacancies that are filled not by special election, but by waiting until the following general election. The governor has not declared vacancies in the past. Vacancies could shift the control of the senate, at least temporarily. We have all seen that one party rule is not good.

I would like to see a political cartoonist draw a sketch of the state capital with jail cell bars on all of the windows, razor wire fence around it, and a sign that says "NY STATE CAPITAL" with "CAPITAL" crossed out, "CORRUPT POLITICIAN CORRECTIONAL FACILITY"

This whole thing sounds like some back yard kids game. It's almost laughable. I can't believe that these guys had the knowledge to put together something like this. I previously worked for a company that made high power radar power supplies, which took years to design, produce, and get operational. It took several engineers to finally get this product to the customer in working order. Such a device would require a large vehicle to transport. This not a device you are going to hold in your hand, aim, and power from your cars cigarette lighter receptacle.

He must have had more than 2 vodka drinks to be .2 BAC.

These DWI violators obviously have a problem and do know when to quit drinking. It should be noted that many of them are repeat offenders. Quite often, you read where those arrested do not have a valid license due to a previous conviction. These individuals should not be allowed to have a vehicle registered in their name. If caught driving someone elses car, the owner could have action taken against his license for allowing someone without a valid license drive. There needs to be a way to make it difficult for those operating without a valid license to have access to a vehicle.

This is just one more example of selfishness that exists between the cities of Gloversvilles and Johnstowns mayors and common councils. Remember all of the fighting over the new Wal-Mart? Fighting over revenue from sales tax and not approving water and sewer expansion because of it.The Wal-mart properties were eventually annexed to the city of Gloversville. I heard former Gloversville mayor John Reich who was hosting "Talk of the Town" on WENT radio on Saturday remark that he thought they could not stop the permissive water agreement because the city of Gloversville has an obligation to provide water to properties around the former city landfill in that area. Its too bad the town of Johnstown can't come up with its own water and sewer facilities independent of the 2 cities.

It might be that the owner could lease the Stewart's store nearby, when Stewart's moves across the road to the new store they plan to build in the old Loblaw's sight. I got a feeling he could sell that corner that the burned out site is on.

The US legal system is the best lots of money can buy. Alledged $360K in bribes, the defense costed $2.4M, how much did the prosecution spend? The biggest winners are the lawyers.

The manufacturers of these products should be forbidden from calling these flushable. I can recall perhaps 40 years ago that there were sanitary napkins that were advertised as flushable. They did not stay on the market very long. Not sure if it was because they were found to cause problems with septic systems or if they just did not sell.

It would seem to me that the budget bill should be only about how to provide money for state , county, local and school financing. Tying all kinds of other non-budget issues should be prohibited. Ethics, teacher evaluations, etc should be taken care of separately.
