Rumors swirl about Paterson, Bruno bacon not delivered, clerk and robber crash through window, a Schenectady gift basket for Stephen Colbert

The big news at the state Capitol is... a NYT story about David Paterson... that hasn't been published yet... and no one seems to know when it will be. The story is rumored to include some sort of bombshell -- though that, too, is currently a mystery (Gawker commenters had some ideas). The governor reportedly met with Democratic party leaders over the weekend to discuss whether or not he will follow through on his vow to run for election this fall. And there are rumors about serious discontent within his administration. A spokesman for Paterson called all the recent rumors "a new low even by the standards of planet Albany."

Until the "$" comes out of [Daily Gazette $], I think you should drop them from your posts, since 99.9% of your readers can't read these items.

I'd like to know which insurance company Duanesburg school district uses.

Please don't drop Daily Gazette.

A close friend was a witness to the Larkfest stabbings, and had to testify at the trial. The details are chilling. It's terrifying that there are people that violent out there.
