Albany still loves you, Rachael Ray

The Rachael Ray nation.

It's been a while since Rachael Ray regularly graced the studios of our local TV stations and the aisles of our supermarkets, but it appears the Capital Region still holds her close to its heart.

The Albany-Schenectady-Troy metro ranks #2 overall for "Rachael Ray" searches on Google for the past 12 months.

So, what metro has pushed us out of the way in its ardor for the Ray? Harrisburg-Lancaster-Lebanon. In fact, three Pennsylvania metros rank in the top five: Harrisburg (1), Philadelphia (3), and Pittsburgh (5).

Lobbying with Rachael Ray

kirsten gillibrand and rachael ray

And afterward, they discussed how to take over the world. (Obviously.)

Kirsten Gillibrand and Rachael Ray teamed up on Capitol Hill yesterday to press the case for healthier school lunches. From a NYT article, which reports that KG "unleashed" the Ray on other lawmakers:

"How could you go to any state in the union and say you are not for an extra couple of cents to eradicate hunger, to make our kids healthier, stronger, better focused?" [Ray] said. "It doesn't make any sense that you would even have to have a long conversation about that, to me."

Specifically, Gillibrand and Ray were pushing for the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act.

KG has made school lunches one of her focus issues -- this week she was pushing legislation that would ban trans-fat from school meals. RR has also campaigned for healthier food in schools.

Wish they open the old McCormick road between Albany and Bethlehem for walkers and bikers so more people would have access to the trail from the Westmere, Albany, and Guilderland side.
