What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Meat Romney, a nation divided by Facebook, generator ethics, BUILT, surveillance, winning Halloween, mushroom hunting, tattoos, mozz and melba drama, white whales, Helsinki Hudson, disappointing breakfast, a beermosa, miSci, Nanovember, maps, and a face.

Behold: Meat Romney, Mr. Dave's latest creation.

Rob, on the election and Facebook: "Social media is bound to be the next thing that bitterly divides us."

And Paula took a moment to admire a face at the Capitol.
