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]
