What's different here than what Carl wrote two years ago??? I could see a new story if there have been complaints about his performance or availability at the school but we see none of that, just Carl wondering, "how does he do this?". Carl is terrific at digging up dirt but it doesn't seem like he was able to here, and that must kill poor Carl. Carl gets paid for stuff like this?? That's the story here!!!

Well known fact at the Gazette that Carl is very tight with his $$$ so I'm guessing he didn't donate to the "Torah Study Institute.”

When I chose to work for the state around 25 years ago after graduating college I did so not to make millions but because I hoped I could make a decent middle class salary with good benefits and a good retirement package. My starting salary 25 years ago for a job which required at least a bachelors degree was less than $25K. I could have pursued MUCH HIGHER paying jobs in the private sector but that was the route I chose. I'm still not making millions but I've worked hard to get to where I'm at. So now that I'm well into my 40's you want to change the rules and take my pension away? Unfortunately at this point I can't get a do over and choose to pursue those higher paying private sector jobs from 20 years ago. After 25 yrs I'd probably take home around $30K a year if I retired now. I'll be working another 20 years, for a total of 45, before I retire and i still won't take home $40K, it'll probably be around $35K. Carl, that's not reasonable for 40+ years of state service in a career path I chose shortly after college????

how is Sinkoff's replacement doing in the ratings? I'm not a fan of Jacobs

"If you get 1,500 fans out for a fight card in Albany, paying $40 to $75 each, you’re doing good.

At a card put on by Ares Promotions at the Crowne Plaza in Albany last Friday night, there were probably 800 in attendance, and always a good number at any fight are “comps,” people who get free tickets because they are themselves boxers, trainers, managers or just friends — or media hangers-on like me."

Surely Mr. Strock you can afford $40 for a ticket, even if as a part of the media you're given a freebie. You write an article about the financial struggles these people are facing and then take a freebie because you're "reporting"?? What a cheapskate!! Unbelieveable!
