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.

Dined at the Dragon Garden several times and was always pleased with the combination of "ABC" Chinese food and the authentic, and the general state of the place. Always happy to see a buffet table get flushed, they really are the bottom of the ladder in dining choices. We'll be over soon, and good luck!

"LISTEN TO AUTHORITY!!! Whether you like it or not. None of these victims or their followers have respect for authority,"
That statement alone sums up a big part of the problem. Respect authority or you might die, right? Sorry, authority hasn't earned the blind trust of most folks, especially the minority communities. That may work with your pets (god forbid) but it doesn't, it hasn't, and it won't ever fly in the general population. You need a different approach, friend.
