Night Nosh

Crain's New York Business advises us of What Gov. Spitzer forgot to mention "Spitzer's agenda is so overarching that what he did not mention stands out in stark relief. What he didn't mention was anything serious concerning the power of public employee unions. Mr. Spitzer proposes special aid to distressed cities. But he didn't propose a new, less generous pension tier for government workers that would treat taxpayers more fairly and, over time, reduce the cost of state and local governments." What this bozo doesn't realize is...state workers are paid far less than the corporate world.....one of the few "perks" we get is.......decent health insurance coverage and a pension.....get a life will you.........and the Buffalo News warns us Spitzer's upstate czar may face tough job "ALBANY - The upstate economy is so dire that Gov. Eliot Spitzer says upstate needs its own development czar based in Buffalo.
And the new governor already has appointed a close friend to head the state development agency for downstate.
So can a two-headed state development corporation - with a downstate co-chair and an upstate co-chair - work? " Spitzer will make it work...it has to..there is no choice here..........meanwhile NY1 News reports
Exhibit Chronicling Spitzer's Campaign Opens Amid Controversy.....after reading this article..."much to do about nothing.".......what controversy?......and finally Newsday's SpinCycle has their latest Naked Ambition poll..........
Which was the most fevered lunge for self-promotion by a power player?
1. President George W. Bush freshly invoking the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in his latest war message, saying “For the safety of our people, America must succeed in Iraq."
2. Republican State Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno complaining that Gov. Eliot Spitzer is stumping for a fellow Democrat, Nassau Legis. Craig Johnson, for an open Senate seat.
3. U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer declaring that there are potentially 25 percent fewer air traffic controllers watching the skies over New York this year than there should be.

and the results??? a dead heat.........they all got 33 percent of the vote.......andy
