"...chocolate bars in moderation pose little health risk, no amount of tobacco is considered safe."
How pathetic. I know it's trendy and popular to hate on tobacco and tobacco users, but a short visit to any mall in America reveals which is the bigger problem. Sugar means money, and it's kid-driven.

Years from now we'll look back on the 20th century and wonder why we wasted so much time and resources on pot and not enough on alcohol abuse. Alcohol is truly the bigger scourge.

High praise to law enforcement for settling this relatively peacefully. Credit where credit's due. Hopefully this guy and his family get the help they need.

Emotional? The pot calls the kettle black, I believe. Hysterical statements like:
'After all, engineers are like businessmen, aren’t they? So we shouldn’t trust any of them'
are just that, hysterical. This and the general condescending, disconnected tone of this sermon just reinforce my image of the industry. While Mr. Malec loads his 12 gauge with fun facts about how rich we could be, most of which would likely be duds once the bigger picture was known, he shoots himself in the foot with his adolescent tone. Both barrels.
So why should I believe Mr. Malec or give him credibility? Oh right, he's an executive in a power company! Great!
Next? I'm still not convinced.

“is a far different organization than it was two years ago.”
No, it's not. It's as corrupt as the gambling industry has always been.
But gambling coming to Schenectady is looking more and more exciting!

Took 3 tries to get in. The first two, we three were walk-ins arriving on a Friday evening and Sunday evening. Both times we were told there was an hour to an hour and a half wait, despite the place appearing pretty quiet. 3rd time we phoned in a reservation for one hour later and were seated upstairs in a corner.

Had to pay for a basket of tortilla chips and salsa (!). Very heavily perfumed waitress, very clumsy service and less than memorable food. We're willing to give it another try, but so far underwhelmed.

@dan, I betting it will be, for a few.
