Rensselaer County Democrats pick county executive candidate

It's official, county Democrats have a candidate for county executive, Andrea Smyth.
Read about it here in the Times Union.

She's a great alternative to the "M & M's Brothers duking it out on the Republican side. And it now gives Lou Desso one more thing to worry about as two of the three candidates in the race would hand him an exit sign from his undeserved county job.

Stay tuned!

GOP Prayer Meeting

Bless me father...You would have died had you seen the sight at Innovo's Kitchen in Latham last night.
Former Congressman John Sweeney standing at the table praying with hands waiving before his "congregation" of diners.

At the table seated, well, the dark side's Richard Crist, so far in the dark that Darth Vader looks like a choir boy.
 Then there was Steve McLaughlin, the Assemblyman running for County Executive. There were also some business types and what appeared to be State GOP legislative staffers.
Well, looks like Mr. Sweeney is not working for the party
choice Chris Meyer.
We can only imagine what the spectacle must have looked like to those in the restaurant. Desert? We'll lets just say lap dances are not permitted.

Memorial Day Honors Sacrifice


"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself"

-Joseph Campbell

It has been noted that in time of peace sons bury their fathers but in times of war, fathers bury their sons. As we celebrate this Memorial Day with friends and family, remind your children what this day is all about. In a word, sacrifice. So many have given so much so that all of us can live in a free nation. None of this would be possible without them.
We pray that those who gave their lives and who suffered in battle, find peace for all time. To all who have served our nation, a simple thank you cannot adequately express our gratitude and appreciation for your service.
North Greenbush has many patriots from many wars. We thank you. Have a blessed Memorial Day.
