So what REALLY happened here, folks? Two cars traveling independently on the same road in the wee hours get pulled over simultaneously. Both drivers are DWI; one is the SCCC president, the other is the college trustees' chief of staff. What a strange coincidence!

I was waiting for both of these movies to show up at the Schenectady Bowtie. Of course hell would freeze over first.

Nice entry, Jeff. Years ago, I joined the Roxbury Organic Farm CSA (community-supported agriculture) in Kinderhook. You basically buy a share of the operation up-front ($540 per year), and leave the hard work to the professional farmer who runs the place. Starting in about mid-June, you get a bundle of fresh produce delivered to your neighborhood every week. It's enough to break your arm, it's so heavy. (I share my share with a certain unnamed Gazette colleague, Art.) Real good quality stuff, good variety, even recipes for the unusual items, every week through Halloween. Then it's every 2 weeks with root veggies till mid-December. Last year was the only down year in the 10 since I've joined - Irene's floods rendered a lot of crops inedible. I still grow a few of my own herbs and tomatoes for kicks, but this takes care of Claudia's and my vegetable needs. You should check it out; they have a drop-off in Albany, too.
