Among the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Michael Pollan, Occupy Albany, creeping out at the Capitol/ESP, local ghost stories, costumes, the Breeder's Cup, interesting frost, Cooperstown, pusties, banh mi, an old restaurant, soy sauce, cupcakes, winning at the racino, the car dealership cat, Plotterkill, and tea frustration.
