I doubt he is "truly, truly sorry for that....", his crimes - I think he is truly, truly sorry that he got caught.

Phil Steck's arguments against term limits seem weak to me. His objectivity on this subject is also suspect, given that he and his fellow legislators want to protect their jobs at any cost. I think terms limits are the best antiseptic for the bacteria that is the very definintion of the NYS legislature.

Most police officers believe that they are exempt from laws that the public must abide. Look at the way they drive. While they may be able to get away with poor behavior behind the wheel of a car, until the laws of physics are repealed, they will continue to be a danger to themselves and the pubic.

The higher minimum wage and extended leave proposals are nothing more than Prince Andrew pandering to the voters that increasingly dislike him, and find him increasingly irrelevant. With the advent of Bernie Sanders, it is suddenly popular on the left to act socialist, and that is a train Andrew wants on. It's a losing strategy for New Yorkers and their businesses.

I'm not a Trump supporter, but the "establishment" is fully responsible for Trump's rise. They simply don't listen or care what the electorate thinks or wants. This is THEIR fault!

Leadership doesn't seem to be a skill that Obama exercises very often, That isn't likely to happen.

Unfortunately, our government has proven itself to be untrustworthy when it comes to privacy. They have said they do not collect mass intelligence on the phone conversations of ordinary Americans, yet we found out later that they do. I am tired of being lied to, all justified by the necessity to keep us safe. If the FBI wants to get into that phone, they need to figure it out for themselves.

$10 Milllion dollars?????? Really??? While I certainly don't condone any type of bullying, I can't imagine how much damage could have been done to warrant an amount that large. Survivors of horrific plane crashes get far, far less, and THEY are clearly scarred for life. Without knowing the facts, this sure sounds like an attempt to cash in, both by the mother, and the attorney.

I agree completely with this editorial, but it doesn't mention the underlying reason for this action: This executive order's purpose was to embarrass NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio, and to burnish Andrew Cuomo's reputation as a governor that gets things done. I think Andrew sees his popularity waning, and hence his political aspirations are becoming less likely to be realized. As he recognizes this fact, he increasingly does things to remain relevant. If Cuomo seeks a 3rd term, I'd be very surprised if he gets it.

What difference does it make? It's not like the next President of the Council will matter. Why not focus on something that matters?
