Crowds line streets to honor Mechanicville Marine, Cuomo comments on Apple speculation, Bailey Wind recovering at home

The body of Anthony Denier -- the Marine from Mechanicville who was recently killed in Afghanistan -- was transported home Monday (photo gallery). People lined the streets of Mechanicville for the procession. Said one woman to Fox23: "I can't send money. I can't do stuff like that, but I can be here, and I can hold a flag. And I can be here for him, and I think that will say something." Denier is scheduled to be buried at Saratoga National Cemetery Tuesday. [Saratogian] [Daily Gazette free] [TU] [Fox23] [YNN]

... Great experience. Fast pickup times. I was chatting with one of my drivers about potential Saratoga -> Albany types of drives or similar. He is actually based in Delmar, and said that as a driver, Lyft has a feature that you can pick a fare based on the direction you want to end up in which I thought was interesting. He was driving around all night and lives out in Delmar but ended up more towards Saratoga when he was about to call it quits. His last fare was a drive from Saratoga back towards Albany and got him pretty close to home as well. That makes me feel better about catching a ride to a place further in NY if I happen to need one.
