The way she pumped gas revealed... a dark side...

Somehow he managed to make what goes on at a supermarket loading dock sound dirty.

Well, that's an interesting approach to learning the banjo.

She must really want to learn D&D.

He's looking for a double crosser. (If you ever you wonder, "Is that a thing for someone?" The answer is always yes. For someone.)

Yeah, they're not talking about pillows.

If this works, his dog totally deserves some extra treats.

He's new to the pong scene.

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.
