After many months of polluting the landscape and airwaves last year, I'm glad some of the Occupy protesters are making up for it by being useful. Good for those who are doing this great thing.

Miss Tkaczyk called my house yesterday. I do give her credit for personally making a call, but was put off by her emphasizing that she is "anti-fracking". While she entitled to her opinions, the issue of hydro-fracturing does not directly affect my district. Because of being the seat of NYS government, the economy of the Capital District is fairly robust. But that is not the case in the southern tier where hydro-fracturing is an issue. There the economy is in great need of a financial boost.

It's misguided people like Cecilia Tkaczyk that are content with living well even though others are languishing economically because of senseless opposition to natural gas development through hyrdro-fracturing.

What's surprising about the court's decision is that it was split. There were actually three judges that dissented, arguing that a lap dance can be considered art, and therefore should not require Nite Moves to pay sales tax on money they charge for lap dances.

If the majority had been the other way, just think of all the juice bars, offering this new "art", that would crop up all over.

Since there hasn't been any successful or memorable baseball played at Fenway lately, they might as well have someone successful play there.

It looks good, but I can't see the whole page now, and have to use the slide bar to move over. I have a 19" monitor, and don't have this with any other website. If I adjust system parameters for this site, then my other other sites will be too small.

Is anyone else having this issue?

It's a simple question; not who are you voting for. You can vote for Ron Paul and still answer the question about the debate.

I guess the retiring Senator McDonald wasn't so proud of his "principled stand" after all. The most memorable vote he's ever made, and he wants it forgotten. hmmm...

What would be the point? He hasn't a chance of winning on a third party line. If he's bitter and wants to spoil the election, then he should do that.

Why doesn't he do what most losing candidates do?...graciously congratulate the winner and step aside for the good of the party.

airedale and robbump - Some can discuss politics, some can't without getting personal about it.

Take care...
