    Wow. This site has completely checked out.

      Yeah because how many times can we make these fruitless comments without finally saying…
      Who's listening?

      • HankMorgan

        That’s not it at all. There’s very little reporting anymore. Police blotter stuff. Or nothing posted for days. So much going on in town. Fodder for real stories. And a loyal readership.

          Let me tell you. Paterson has got a lot of work to do to get special reporting, with the crime and corruption levels.
          Unless of course they're making changes somewhere, to which they're obviously not.
          Paterson went to Hell in a hand basket. We need to make changes first and foremost. Our entire interior, or this country will fall short of the long hall.
          Everybody's running for their lives.

          'Death in Venice, death on the Nile
          Death with dignity, death with a smile
          Death of innocence, death of a salesman
          Death in the afternoon, death of the whales, man'

          ay, there’s the rub!
