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

Is there a website that tracks where people got a George Clooney as change? I would like to shop there.

When I used to bus-commute in another city, there was a similar smart card system and it was AWESOME. On/Off time was significantly decreased, so buses were even a little more timely. I hope this pilot goes smoothly because the faster this gets implemented, the better for bus riders. This is good news!
