Spitzer still the gov -- for now, Troy enforces code violations against "Virtual Jihadi" gallery, Albany Marines headed to Iraq, firemen remove man from tree, Schenectady cop takes time on the job to take in bowling
The City of Troy has shut down public gatherings at the gallery that was showing Wafaa Bilal's "Virtual Jihadi" for code violations. The exhibition drew protests Monday -- and they were led by the city's public works commissioner, who also happens to be in charge of code enforcement. The gallery had been previously cited for violations, but the director of the gallery says the city is censoring the work. And he says the original code violations came after the gallery showed a film that was critical of the mayor's policies. [TU] [Troy Record] [Daily Gazette]
