In stories related to the BSA allowing gay scouts but not gay leaders and the Southern Baptist Convention rumoring to kick out scouts due to this policy, I see a whole bunch of hypocrisy going around. Is allowing gay scouts but not allowing gay leaders akin to allowing girls as acolytes or servers in church but not allowing them to be to be priests? If the book of Leviticus is the mark by which churches are so anti-gay, shouldn't they be boycotting pork and bacon, let alone bottom dwelling sea creatures like catfish, shrimp and clams?

Albert Colone is right about the need to consolidate our small cities and suburbs. New York City did just that over 100 year ago. It is time for the Capitol region to shed it's fiefdoms and umpteen layers of taxpayer burdened bureaucracies!

So who is responsible for the pipe after the meter? If it is Galesi group, they have a problem. If it is the town's problem they need to fix it. If I were Galesi I would have my own meter next to the town's and good calibration records!

If I were asked to be on a jury in Schenectady county with the knowledge that Schenectady police were going to testify, I would be hard pressed to find someone guilty knowing the past performance of the department does not follow proper protocol implying any testimony they provide may be tainted.

Weapons in the wrong hands don't make me feel safe and since we can't determine, without a doubt, the difference between the right and wrong hands, I don't feel safe. Now I don't lose sleep about it as I try not to let things I can't control also ruin my health. But, so how can I tell kids to feel safe without being a hypocrite?

From: Children keep asking me if they are safe

There is a reason for term limits. While Farley is a State senator, the federal government has a mandatory retirement policy for federal judges and for a reason, as far as I can see, needs to be placed on all officials that receive a taxpayer funded job.

From: Farley's argument on school aid equity doesn't cut it

If the electoral college was not a state take all but rather a congressional district take all, the playing field might be a lot different

I think it is about time to dissolve the county and consoladate it with something bigger but more efficient. There is no reason these days to have a dozen different school systems, police & fire departments, court systems, supervisors and mayors. If they could create the city of New York out of a patchwork of fiefdoms a hundred years ago, surely they can do something here.

Time to unload a bunch of authorities and make the boards non paying jobs or at least within the guidelines paid to state government officials. Is there any reason for the the NYS Thruway authority when it was suppose to be paid off in 1996? Talk about a jobs creating boondoggle and a killer of companies coming to NY! That could go and open up NY business like you wouldn't believe. Truckers don't bypass by dropping down to I80 west for nothing. If the pay toll highway is so good, why isn't there more?

From: Cuomo sets sights on bureaucratic waste
