"You were dressed as Anastasia from 50 Shades and were looking for your Mr. Grey."

He didn't get to claim his wish from the fairy godmother.

Fate brought them together, handcuffs kept them apart.

Could that connection have been the IV?

"If we happen to meet again" is a long from "let's go to Tunisia together."

She says she's not self-absorbed, it's just... you know... lip gloss.

"I'd like to see you in just a bow tie."

If there are what appear to be random flashing in Saratoga...

It amazes me that people still pin budgetary issues for old post-industrial upstate cities on individual mayors. This is a nationwide problem for all but the largest cities. But it's depressing that issues like getting vacant or dilapidated properties back on the tax rolls or making it easier for small businesses to open are being addressed and no one even notices. Given that, exactly what incentive is there for any politician to do anything? I'll give all the candidates a fair hearing, Sheehan included. But if we want to have any chance of fixing our problems, we really need to start acknowledging the progress we have made.
