To politicize the culture of violence into liberal related problems is ludicrous. I am sure there are republican thugs involved in several cities including Schenectady as well as democrats. I am offended that only you say only drug dealers and addicts want to live here. There are plenty of us who are well educated and well employed who want to live in Schdy. Your remarks are offensive mr sour grapes

Typical Amsterdam attitude-anything new or anything other than something "approved" by the Amsterstam "old guard" is not good and certainly not worthy in the name of progress. The attitude that nothing different or new (whether its ideas,newcomers or interesting restaurants or stores) is ever good will only spell even more decline in Amsterdam. This is why I am moving to Niskayuna. Its a pity Ann Thane's hard work is wasted.

lets give these teachers some kudos for utilizing innovative ways to engage the students and helping to motivate them to learn. There are many positive behavior management classroom strategies, like the Good Behavior Game(Johns Hopkins) and Postive Behavioral Intervention Strategeis,which may already be in place to help generalize these behaviors beyond the specific classrooms. When longtitudinally studied,these strategies were strong motivators for improved learning and societal outcomes. Praise for innovative learning techniques is more warrented that a critique.

Dear Ms.Durant- How unfortunate you chose to articulate your comments about "how far we have come as a society .....and how you would have enjoyed it without the peek into the past". Seriously?! I was just a child when the Rat Pack was performing,but my mother enjoyed them and she was an independent,educated career woman. Do you have some illusion that our society is so much more evolved and "politically correct" than in the 1960's ? Do you read your own newspaper about all of the violence,hatred,divisive politics,racial profiling,sex trafficking etc that is going on in today's world,even in our community? Its offensive that you couldn't just review this show on its entertainment value and leave the uninformed and generation discriminatory comments out.

We are a long time hockey family....daughters play,husband played for RPI in the '70s and brother-in-law is VP for Hockey Operations with the NJ Devils,so we are around hockey all the time...We enjoy Pierre McGuire.....he has a lot more knowledge and savvy than a lot of other commentators for other sports and easier to listen to than Don Cherry!

I am an avid horseman,have bred a few horses in my day and I am disgusted and saddened. Rachel Alexandra has gone from being Horse of the Year in 2009 to little more than an equine "puppy mill" brood mare all for the sake of foaling offspring that will bring alot of money at the Fasig-Tipton sales in August of next year. It doen't even make sense to not give her a year off to recuperate between foals. If she dies,shame on you, greedy horse racing industry,you should be ashamed of putting this fine horse at risk for your gain.
