The roundabouts at Fuller and Washington are just newly opening. In fact, they are not even complete. It takes about a month for folks to get used to them and, once they do, most find them superior.

As to fender benders, here's a question for wmarinic: If your son or daughter was T-boned at a new signalized intersection that could have been a roundabout, how would you feel? A fender bender is minor property damage. A T-bone is bodily injury or death (oh, in addition to MUCH great property damage). Kudos to manjoe - he's right on the money.

Kudos as well to the Gazette for not only giving this issue clarity and focus, but for having the guts to reassess its position noted in 2007. There aren't too many institutions these days that will admit they were wrong, but I resepect the Gazette for being 'real'.

One final comment - the roundabouts under discussion in Malta are only one-lane. The others in Malta, and at Fuller/Washington, are two lane roundabout. The one-laners are super simple to navigate.

Right on, Mezz. The welfare benefit package is huge in Schenectady and the oversight on the fraud is practically non-existent. It's so easy to get on welfare here, I was thinking about going to apply myself. What the heck? It's technically my money they are giving away anyway. And if they give money to people with active warrants, there's no way I'm going to be denied. I'll just go in there with an entitled attitude like the rest of the dregs.

It was a great show, will put effort, putting city owned properties back on tax roll is a task, thanks to sponsors and those who participated and attended.

I need to get in shape. I will never get in the shape these athletes are but I need to exercise to lose weight and get in better shape!

And there are many more cases like this...with little to no investigative work being done, due to the liberal constraints placed upon the Department of Social Services by the Commissioner, Dennis J. Packard. There are people applying for and receiving benefits with active arrest warrants! My tax dollars should be paying for police officers to come and arrest these people, when instead they are used to aid lazy, fat, self-entitled scum to sit at home while I rush to work...I want my money back!

@WordWiz78: (Spelling Bee) Ms. Diamond has raised a logical question, so why she should be shame of that. It is Gazette who should post the effective and motivating column.

Congratulations Rojan! I am sure your school and parent are proud of you. Good luck with your upcoming regional spelling bee. Be prepared for it and make our Schenectady School District proud by winning the competition.

Congratulations to Anna and Shatisha as well.

These type of human waste products breed like animals and then have children they can't afford to feed. They depend on taxpayers to provide for them and they expect it with a sense of entitlement. Why do they take on ownership of animals when they can't afford to feed the human waste by-products that are born to them and we pay for? It's a lack of morals and responsibility that is ingrained into this sect of society. When someone doesn't care enough to provide for their children, animals never stand a chance. I feel worse for the animals actually....
