That's almost one and a half million a mile - nice work if you can get it.

And people wonder why NY is a cesspool. Conflicts abound. But when the next election rolls around these characters will be re-elected as per usual.

I have been in Schenectady 15 years. Other than downtown - the rest of the city has largely deteriorated over that time. It's filthy in many areas. The houses look like they are ready to collapse, people NEVER shovel, the city itself cannot keep up with snow removal, and generally it is depressing to drive through. The kinder gentler way is no way at all. Of course they sent the kids to a more affluent area - it would hardly be safe for them in the Hill or Mt. Pleasant - or Yates Village area. With these enormous taxes we should be able to expect more. This is just a pre-election vote grab and I think time will tell, a failure.

It's extortion is what it is. This casino thing gets more and more disgusting by the week.

We do not need to keep paying Wayne Bennett forever. He already gets a gigantic pension. But we also do not need to pay suspended police officers for years while their cases wend their way through arbitration. The taxpayers need RELIEF - not more bills to pay. McCarthy should man up and get rid of his bud Bennett and find a meaningful way to discipline police officers without Wayne.

As long as one friend of a politician is out of work - we can keep expanding all the various appointed positions forever.

What is worse than arson - murder? Gun violence? I think arson is EXTREMELY serious as once you start it you can't control it. It threatens people, their homes, their pets, and the firefighters who respond. Mom and sonny need to go to PRISON. That's it - nothing else, PRISON.

Poor kid - no matter what - he will always remember that day, and probably feel bad.

I wonder how many of those people who do not have a high school diploma or a GED/TASC have children? And how much time do they spend encouraging their children to study, or reading to them, or helping them? There is no real way to hold people accountable for letting their kids skip school. Also - if there are that many people here without HS diplomas - that is close to or more that 10% of the city's population!! It's terrible. Believe me, if we get a casino they will not be working there.
