David Paterson at the movies

colonie center theater exteriorGovernors -- they're just like us!

They go to the movies at Colonie Center on a Saturday night! They see the 9 pm showing of the Sex and the City movie! With their entourage! And security detail! And after the movie they shake the hands of all the mall security guards! And hop in their motorcade of ethanol-powered SUVs!

OK, maybe governors aren't just like us.

I'd have to say a night time stroll around the Empire State Plaza. We don't have any romantic vistas like the movies' with a drive up lot over a shimmering city below, but we do have a fantastic place to stop and look out over downtown and there's this great feeling that the plaza is a well kept secret for lovers out for a walk at night.
