I'm a retired state worker. Most of the "M/C" employees I knew were wildly overpaid, and I doubt that has changed substantially.

I never knew only Catholics of Irish descent could join the Hibernians. C'mon,'s 2014. Isn't that a bit out of the old days? Incidentally, my maternal grandparents immigrated to the US from Ireland in the early 20th century, and I'm proud to be 1/2 Irish-American. Irish heritage is one thing to celebrate & preserve, but one's religion is another matter altogether.

safny, I think (sadly) that you're correct. The heck with grant money for this....the city needs to find a way to expedite the process of pursuing deadbeat owners. There's a house around the corner from me that had a major fire FIVE years ago. It is now only inhabited by pigeons (that I know of). It is on a small lot that no one would build on in 2014 if it were to be torn down. Make the owners pay; they collected their rent money for years and now the thing just sits there attracting vermin? What's wrong here?

Mr. Astorino can slam Mr. Cuomo all he wants for high taxes. If he has any magic solutions or elixirs, how come he hasn't lowered taxes in Westchester County?
