Kabuki. American-style.
Nothing about this episode assures the public that the police can be counted on to police themselves.

The city is being reshaped. That can often be a good thing.
Sadly it's being reshaped by a few select individuals who think they'll profit from that, and without any apparent foresight or hindsight. I predict within one year from now that intersection will be cleared and shovel-ready. What about 20, 30 or 50 years from now? Then, in an obscure house, somewhere deep in the Schenectady Stockade theme park you'll be able to go see pictures on the walls of what Schenectady used to be (and maybe discover why Erie Boulevard has that name!).
Good luck with that Metroplex and your legacy (if that matters). Hopefully when the curtain is finally drawn back, and it will be, what's revealed is G-rated.

Rob1986, sometimes Democracy is hard, isn't it? It means you can't always get your way. You and the Republican Party have 8 years of evidence that you can't be mature about not getting your way. Have you noticed your candidates? Kind of a joke really. Same for the non-existent solutions they've promised.
"Grown-up" indeed.

Just a quick thanks, DG, for "keeping the presses rolling" as they say. Every city needs a newspaper, whatever it's format and whatever the reader may think of it, and you all fit that role well. Thank you!

Just as many in the always insightful comment sections fail to recognize white suppression.

So, Saratoga water isn't all water from Saratoga.

Mr. Vale, like so many other rabid right-wingers, proudly shows utter willful ignorance of what socialism, and especially democratic socialism is. Here's a clue: Democratic socialism firmly embraces capitalism. Mmm-kay?
Enjoy your Trump, Republicans and hangers-on. If we're lucky enough you'll get a side of Paladino as a running mate. The informed electorate will then happily golf-clap as you all boldly march over the cliff.

Hamelot, according to a 3/4/16 article in this paper it was Jersen, who've been doing business in this area for many years.
Your point is a good one. No one seemed to question *why* only one firm submitted a bid. In this economy, with a fairly high profile job up for grabs, one would think there'd be a fair amount of competition for it. Or there could also be a fair amount of corruption around it as well.
So which is it? It's too opaque to see.
