On a discussion thread about "kids today" that began after a father was charged with assault for hitting his child.

And it does seem like this generation of kids is the brattiest yet. "The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they allow disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children now are tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers." -Socrates

On the theft of Albany's famous big pink bike.

That's going to be nearly impossible to find. I mean, a bike that looks like it's from the year 1890 that someone spray painted hot pink? Unfortunately that's gunna blend right in. Believe me. Someone stole my airplane with flapping wings that I modeled after those early Wright brothers films & the police told me there was nothing they could do. Why, the burglar could have just hid it at Albany International Airport. It's like a needle in a haystack.

On the possibility of declaring martial law in Schenectady

I'd prefer Martian Law! Captain Murphy: Until we find the thief, I am declaring Martian law! Sparks: Um, I think its martial law. Captain Murphy: Silence! Under Martian law... uh... what are my powers, exactly? Sparks: Under martial law, you could suspend habeas corpus, empower a posse comitatus... Captain Murphy: That's crap. Mars is wild, untamed. I'm forming a cadre of Martian knights charged with enforcing Martian law.

On the picture of Amy in the bunny hat from Soave Faire

Amy, I have a bad news for you. I used that bunny hat at Soave Faire 3 years ago. Now go wash your hair :)

On the new president of The Sage Colleges, Dr. Scrimshaw

I'd give anything to be addressed as "Dr. Scrimshaw." Though I think I'd have to adopt some retro-villain costuming and an evil laugh. "You haven't heard the last of Dr. Scrimshaw!"

On a proposed NYS Dump Tax that turned out to be a radio hoax

I'm moving to New Hampshire where I can Sh*t Free or Die!

On tracking dollar bills int the Capital Region on the website Where's George

...said 23-Hour Alice Person

... I tend to ask questions that make the person think about what they just said. I ask it sweetly and in a tone that notes confusion on my part. I have been called honey in the office and asked the person, " Can I ask what you mean when you call me honey? Because you don't call John honey." It calls out that he's treating you differently for being a woman. If he still doesn't get it, you can be more direct: "I appreciate that you respect my work and treat me equally, but I wouldn't want others to think otherwise based on how you address me."
