So upset about "Dancing Lady". Schenectady won't be the same without her, but it was nice to learn some more about her from the article. She was always a bit of a mystery as are all of Schenectady's beloved characters.

Is it just me, or have there been a lot of high speed chases in the area lately?!

The state of our roads makes it too dangerous for me to want to use my bike to go to work. It's scary enough to walk/jog around town and have people fly through stop signs/lights when I'm using intersections... and on a bike it's that much worse if you attempt to bike legally in the street. This would be a great start to making our community more safe in general. We have to start somewhere.
