Chewing the cud with Paul Tonko

Tonko with a cow

What, your congressperson hasn't hugged you?

Paul Tonko was in Cobleskill yesterday -- and he took some time out to stop by SUNY Cobleskill for a visit with new Twitter star C. Abunga.

I'm resisting the urge to caption this photo with a "NOM NOM NOM". So freaking adorable!

Politicians have never been so delicious!

I wasn't a huge Tonko fan before, but how could you not like him after seeing that picture.

So much for the informed electorate.

Paul is a huge proponent for innovative energy solutions -- and the lil' Twitter star is good advertising for SUNY Cobleskill's proposed new biowaste-to-energy plant, the first of its' kind in the U.S., according to SUNY: http://www.dailygazette.com/news/2008/oct/17/1017COBY/

Leaf Peeper Porter - a rich, malty dark beer nicely balanced by a touch of local apple cider (pre-fermentation for nice dry cider notes), ginger, cinnamon, and locally grown hops to brighten everything up. Basically, a rich dark beer finished with a nice apple-y fall crispness, perfect for fall in the Capital Region!
