How much did this idiocy—excuse me, "alertness and preparedness" cost us?

Its not over-regulation if Price Chopper is issuing the recall themselves. Instead it is a display of responsible business practices (however unlikely a bad outcome may have been).

Small-government folks constantly tout self-regulation as a preferable solution to gov't regulation, so perhaps we should see this as a good thing?

Sounds like there were reasons, and those reasons were communicated. Not sure what the big secret is!

When do we get more efficient recycling in Schenectady? You can't recycle any plastics unless they are bottle shaped? What is this, 1985?

Some might see it as a ripoff. Others might see it as a way to make the city better. I'd like to see some of my neighbors (one in particular) be forced to actually take care of their sidewalks...this absentee landlord's broken, unusable sidewalks are a hazard, and they bring down the value of my home and the neighborhood.

And al Qaueda wins, when you can't bring a backpack to a freaking outdoor sporting event. Ridiculous.

Ah, Nigro. Erasing our communities' heritage one building at a time. East Greenbush (historic Defreest-Church House), Niskayuna (historic Ingersoll home, barely saved, property destroyed), and now Watervliet. What have they done that we missed? What else will they do? And Price Chopper should be ashamed for going along with this (although I expect they'll claim, as Target did in East Greenbush, that "they're just renters and can't affect the decision." Which is absurd.Trust me.

What will be done with the old YMCA building, now that the Y has a new facility for health club folks, and soon to have a new facility for the homeless? That end of State street needs some love and care.
