Sara, If you go back a few more decades, I'm sure you could find a few more, maybe just not power ballads in the strict sense; then again, Great White with 'Save All Your Love', Poison with 'Something To Believe In', and Def Lepperd with 'Too Late For Love' rank high in my book. Again, not in the power ballad sense, but two of my favorites have always been Cheap Trick, with 'The Flame', and The Rolling Stones with 'Blinded By Rainbows'. Hell, I guess we all have our lists of 'great' music, but I probably have a longer one, since I am quite a bit more 'weathered' (read old!) than you!

Yikes!! A well-established survey group! Random sampling? Just names out of the phone book? They didn't work off any lists? Did they poll any extreme conservatives, or just demoncrats? I guess you just didn't get what I was saying, which is par for the course. Perhaps, instead of criticizing my opinion, you might address the absurdity of giving credence to a survey of ~1500 people out of how many millions of registered voters.

You're kidding, right? 1488 voters were polled, out of how many registered voters in NYS? I've got a bigger circle of e-mail friends, and NONE would have approved of what he is doing to this state. What a farce!

Terry, And, yet, how many people with short memories will vote for her for President if she decides to run? She stood by two Presidents (one who was impeached!) when they lied to the American people and Congress. People are sheep, and we are being led to the slaughter. And yet we don't wake up! The one thing I admired Hillary for was trying to get the original, and only, Woodstock (1969) site, in Bethel, declared a National Historic Site, and she failed at that. Woe is us!

It's always good to know that our government is looking out for us, and protecting us from ourselves, NOT!! Soon we won't be able to 'pass gas' in public!

Carol, Excellent letter, but it would seem that no one is interested in history. I guess that it's just not that important, even though history makes us whom and what we are today. I remember contacting the Gazette and Times Union in November of 2012, asking why I could find no mention of JFK on the date of his assassination forty-nine years previously. I believe that the lead headlines were of some important Hollywood 'stars', or perhaps someone coming out of the 'closet'. I don't recall receiving a reply from either paper, but, then again, I'm 'old', and have a touch of CRS. Having been born and raised in a mostly-Italian area, I can still pronounce 'mozzarella' correctly; who can say the same?

Well, 'laws are made to be broken', aren't they? Aah, the entitlements of the political system! And making an assinine comment about a fundraiser just shows the 'if you don't like it, tough sh.t' attitude so common among our representatives these days. Yup, good old Chuck Schumer, who voted to give away our 2nd Amendment rights to the UN; what a guy!

Well said. And the sound is so much better than a CD; it's why so many of us still collect 45's and LP's.

Government, at whichever level, is a business, and should be run as such, but, alas, political affiliation with its 'perks' and 'entitlements' seems to be what it's all about. It seems that every time I vote for a businessman running for office, he, or she, loses the election. I can't remember the last time someone knocked on my door at election time and asked me my ideas or views, or told me what they would do to enhance the quality of my life. Our system is a mess, as evidenced by the current administrations in Albany and Washington, but until we question the status quo, nothing will change.

just another overpaid primadonna who, as an "adult", refuses to take responsibility for his own actions; pitiful.
