While the defendant certainly seems like a low-life creep, there's no excuse for the judge's behavior. He should be removed from the bench.

This is good news. These properties need attention, but $12.6 million out of a $3.2 billionn settlement? Seriously, where'd the remainder go?

How about a compromise....namely, replacing the flags with smaller versions that wouldn't block the view through a windshield should it become dislodged from the truck?

Anyone who feeds his/her family by buying groceries from Aldi's when they don't have to is clearly more interested in saving a dime than the kids' health. Nice work, Mom!

I'm with safny.......what, indeed are we getting here in lovely Schenectady? A revitalized downtown, but neighborhoods and infrastructure that are both ignored and are deteriorating by the day.

I vote, but as an independent; I am not enrolled as a Democrat or Republican. I am not a particular fan of Obama, but I care about what he thinks, Dadlobby, because he IS the President, and therefore knows what it takes to be the Chief Executive. While he himself may not be doing a stellar job, I have to trust that he knows who is (or would be) unfit for the position.

I've been to Istanbul twice in the last six months. The Turkish people are wonderfully courteous and helpful, and very secular as well. They do not deserve this.

The USA is essentially a country of immigrants from elsewhere who were thrilled to be here (I know my grandparents were) and who strove to be(come) good Americans. So, I usually don't feel inclined to say anything like this, but if this man wants to run for the presidency of Afghanistan, let him return there.

I visited Istanbul in April, and stayed in the Beyazit (historic) district. I found the Turkish people friendly, welcoming, and helpful. What a shame. I hope the culprits are caught and punished.

Good one, electape! The article said the incidents seem to be occurring in the early morning hours, but maybe early enough that the bars were still open; hence the mayor's patrols had not yet begun.
