At least we're not ________

jonathan cares signWhat with the state Senate completely borked and all the seemingly-endless rain, it could be easy to get down on where we live.

But things could be worse. Really.

At least we're not South Carolina
Sure, Eliot Spitzer cheated on his wife with a prostitute. But South Carolina governor Mark Sanford slipped his security detail, went "missing" for five days and used to state funds to travel to Argentina in order to rendezvous with his mistress.

At least we're not Las Vegas or Phoenix
Sure, housing prices are down a bit here. But it could be worse. A lot worse. Prices in Phoenix are down more than 26 percent year-over-year and in Las Vegas they're down an a stomach-turning 34 percent, according to Zillow. Here in the Capital Region: down 4.4 percent year-over-year.

At least we're not Missouri
In the Show Me State, neo-Nazis and other racist groups have claimed Adopt-a-Highway signs. Here in the Capital Region, we have kids named Jonathan who care about the world.


I LOVE that sign!! It always makes me smile when I see it for some reason. :)

Again, this is great! Keep 'em coming!

You think Eliot Spitzer cheating on his wife was shocking? Did we forget that former NY governor Nelson Rockefeller died while he was in bed with his mistress? Or that former NY governor Hugh Carey got married to a woman who wasn't completely divorced from her first husband? Pfft. Small potatoes.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!

Good places for a large company picnic?
