I think reflecting our architectural and cultural heritage is a good idea. But I don't think this design does this anymore than the typical, cookie-cutter suburban strip mall. Slapping brick on a facade, and making that facade look like a handful of separate buildings, is often just lipstick on a pig.

Wow. The new one looks like a humdrum, suburban mall that you can find in Anytown, USA. Just what we always wanted in Schenectady. Uggh.

Are you sure "NYS has laws regarding just what this disrespectful person did"? This has gone to federal court responsible for NYS, and they said just the opposite. Regardless of how undesirable or unproductive this behavior may be, I don't think its in the interest of the government or the people for there to be a law that says "you must be respectful to members of the government."

Maybe in North Korea, I guess. Or Putin's Russia.

Hmm. They want out of their contract, but they still want him to play. Having their cake and eating it too?

God forbid we allow people who speak Arabic to pledge allegiance to our country. Wait...isn't that what we want?

I imagine Mr. Hepp took 10 minutes out of his busy Faux News watching schedule to write this ridiculous garbage. The real shame is how many people really believe this drivel.

Hmm...they only want to help if they get to play with guns—I'm sorry, "protect themselves." Pretty sad. Firefighters and EMTs don't carry guns. Or the Red Cross. Or Neighborhood Watch. I don't even think the Guardian Angels in NYC was armed. Pretty lame.

How about the National Grid gas line project? Nice to have the newer, safer gas lines, but now we have large patches every 10 feet (at best) all through Dean St., Central Parkway, etc...streets which were just resurfaced a couple of years ago. These will be a complete mess once this winter is through.

What are you talking about? Who said anything about going vegan? And sand granules? I swear people mentally insert their own content into these articles.

It doesn't take much training to know when you need a warrant, and it doesn't take any to know you're not supposed to slap the guy.
