What's shaking in The Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the dague unleashed, supermarket siting, a night at the theater, and more CDT&A.

The recent story about child abuse in Troy prompted Ed Dague to dague pretty much everyone (except WTEN). But, wait, the dagued respond!

Imagine for a minute that Bruce Roter's wish comes true -- where should Trader Joe's set up in the Capital Region? Readers at Table Hopping are playing a little fantasy property development.

A middle school play. Rob Madeo as Ben Brantley. Bravo.

And Me. has another installment of CDT&A.

There's a lot more going on around the neighborhood, check it out. We've just added a few new sites. If you know of a great blog or site we should include, post a comment or send us an email: editors |at| alloveralbany |dot| com.


Hey AOA,

Slow down! You guys seem to have me running for the Senate or President already! Don't you think being President of WWTJ (and Vice-President, Treasurer, and Janitor) is honor enough! Besides, you have me pegged as a Democrat. How do you know my affiliation? Perhaps when I'm ready, I'll run as a "middle-of-the-Roter!"
