Some suggestions for Eliot Spitzer "Good day, Gov. Spitzer. Welcome to the CEO's chair in what was once tabbed the most dysfunctional state government in the country." and thinks Local officials see Upstate benefitting from Spitzer era Cathy Valentino, The Town of Ithaca Supervisor among others are interviewed........and the Albany Times Union tells Spitzer to Put drug laws on Day One docket 'New Yorkers are waiting to see whether Gov. Eliot Spitzer's campaign slogan -- "Day One, Everything Changes"-- is genuine, or just a slogan. There are a number of issues that warrant the attention of the new administration, and reforming the draconian Rockefeller Drug Laws should be a priority" It totally amazes me the various "meanings" people have of what "Day One" is all about.......meanwhile the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle declares Rochester favorites a hit at inauguration "Rochester had a strong presence at Gov. Eliot Spitzer's inauguration Monday, from the clothes he wore to the food eaten by attendees.Spitzer and Lt. Gov. David Patterson wore Hickey-Freeman suits during the inauguration.

Hey a Cindy Adams hug is worth it............andy
