Robert, here is a correlation you can use in your future deliberations. Albany has a single parent household rate of 54.9% (graduation rate 49.2) and Schenectady has a single parent household rate of 49.5% (graduation rate of 58.9). This is also a strong correlation.

The author shows correlation between poverty and school failure rates but makes no case for causation. The same factors that lead a person down the path to end up with incomes at poverty level are the same that contribute to school failure. At this time in the US, the single biggest contribution to both poverty and school failure is the existence of high rates of single parent households.

Shirley, the first thing I thought of when I saw those concrete barrier rails was how long until they're covered with graffiti?

Immigration reform would have zero impact on the track. These track workers are supposed to be legal migrants. You make no attempt to differentiate between legal migrants and illegal aliens.

I think you have a slight reading comprehension issue. The David Rakvica letter used the numbers from the original article, which were provided by Stewarts. So you can not dispute Mr. Rakvica's position.
As is always the case with solar power installations, they are completely not cost effective until we the taxpayer pays for almost half of the project. Even then, the payback period is well beyond the useful life of the equipment.
We do not have the money at either the state level or federal level to continue throwing it away on this crap.

It is not illegal to be offensive in America (yet). If you think the Wandering Dago owners should change the name because it is offensive, you should have fired Carl Strock long before he retired on the same reasoning.

Your only question is "Our only question is, why did it take so long?"....how about "how pervasive is this scamming in New York and America?" How about "why is the government so incompetent?" How about "if this is the way the food stamp operation runs, how is the government health care program going to run?"

Could you back up your blather by producing citations for your statement that there are 6000 more bars in NYC and hospitalizations for smoking-related diseases are down??
I doubt you can produce proof of those statements.

Glad you made it Judy. My advice based on my own experiences. Always assume you are at risk. Too many drivers are distracted these days with cell phones and radios. Use a bright LED red blinking red tail light, day and night. Change the batteries monthly. LED brightness is directly proportional to the battery power. Make sure the light is aimed properly at the oncoming cars. Use a mirror!
Drivers....if your lane is obstructed partially by a bicycle and another car is oncoming in the other lane, it is your responsibility to wait until the other car passes before you overtake the bicycle. You do not have the right to cross into the other lane in order to pass the bike if another car is oncoming.
