"Natural gas pipelines, pumping facilities and massive storage sites are all being forced on New Yorkers against their will". This statement is not universally accurate; there are many NY residents that support these energy infrastructure projects. Moreover, nothing is being forced on us against our will. For purely political reasons, the Governor doesn't appear to have the courage to make any decisions on fracking, or other energy infrastructure projects - for or against.

Of course, it's obvious (to anyone that can't think) that the Gov is not delaying these decisions for political reasons.

In his "victory" speech, the governor said that prior to taking office, NY State was literally a joke. Here's a newsflash for Prince Andrew - it still is. NY State continues to have one of the highest tax burdens in the country, is run by a pack of criminals, and many of the residents are looking for the exit door. He has tinkered around the edges, but the Cuomo administration has done nothing that constitutes a structural change in how the state is run that will provide a sustainable future.

Nice article to announce such a sad event. Fr. Hogan was a great man, and we are better people for having known him.

The purpose of the high tax on tobacco was to get people to stop smoking - at least that's what we were told. In reality, it's all about revenue, as the letter above explains. It would be refreshing if our legislators would just say it, rather than the line that the law is for our own good. It's a money grab, nothing more.

It is, but given that the Dems control the whole board (save one seat), it's more relevant to the Dems in this discussion.

The state of affairs in NY State policitcs is a huge embarrassment. The state is going down the tubes, and we continue to elect people that are at worst criminals, and at best corrupt, and we wonder why we are where we are. Cuomo is a thug, and an embarrassment. He's an excellent example of the fact that we got the government we elected, not the one we need.
