The albany symphony is much better than people may perceive. likely one of the finest small city orchestras,with Grammy nominations and awards to prove it! :-) It deserves more support, more attendees than it gets. My worry is what happens when David moves on? (it's his 26th or 27th season). His efforts and personality have driven so much of the improvement. (Dogs of Desire, Instrument Petting Zoo, American Music Festival, Sunday Symphonies( with D.A.M. playfully taking on historic roles))

I don't understand how people give such leeway to expensive highway boondoggles like this one as compared to the scrutiny the Albany Skyway project is receiving. Sure, there's certainly things to criticize with the Skyway project, but this project appears to save drivers 30 seconds on their way to the Airport at the cost of $50 million dollars! How is this not receiving five times the scrutiny and outrage that the skyway project is receiving?!? Imagine how much good we could do if that $50 million were spent in the City of Albany...
