Having more public rest rooms in more locations on Broadway might help solve the problem about urinating in public.

The article fails to mention Fulton county as part of the district. I am waiting to see if the republican party leaders try to select a candidate other than the 2 announced that are located closer to Schenectady and Saratoga counties. The 2 announced candidates from Fulton county might have a tough go against a Democrat from Schenectady even though the district has a republican majority.

Agree with fjcjr 100%. When the vote comes up to have a constitutional convention or not, I hope the people vote for it. One of the changes proposed should be term limits. When it comes time to elect delegates, Don't vote for Phil Stec or any other sitting legislator. If you do, you will end up with useless changes.

I am not sure what proof the NFL has that Brady knew this was going on. To me, I don't really care, I don't watch sports. It would seem to me that allowing the home team to take care of the preparations for the game balls is inviting this kind of incident to occur. This should be under the supervision and control of the officials.

There should be one direct national primary held the same day. Get rid of these conventions that are a big publicity gimmick. The "closed" primary is the way it should be, except you might shorten the time in advance that you can change your affiliation. The polls could be open at 6AM for primaries like the general election. The republican establishment conspiring to oust trump is disgusting. Let the people decide, not the party leaders.

Mr. Silver will probably be imprisoned for the remainder of his life, unless he becomes ill and get compassionate release. Lets not waste time on any more trials.

Of course, both sides feel confident. This lawsuit will force Zurlo and others to reveal the specifics or more likely the two sides to settle out of court. They might settle for perhaps $300,000. the attorney gets his 1/3, and no one will admit any wrong doing. We probably will never hear what really happened.

He said that had thought he had waited long enough to be able to drive. The body removes alcohol at the rate of .02% per hour. With a BAC of .20 and .08 the threshold for DWI, he would have needed 6 hours just to get down that far. He would have needed about 2 additional hours to get below DWAI that has a threshold of.05. 8 hours total, who is this guy kidding?
