Fiddling While Rome Burns

The Albany crisis continues. State spending's up 9% since last year. Albany slapped on 138 new taxes and fees. The state legislature meets in special session to reduce the deficit. The responsibilities of the Governor and state legislators have never been more critical.

And where do we find Monroe Democratic Chairman and State Assemblyman Joe Morelle last night?

Just where you'd expect a New York state legislator to be under the circumstances -- at the Syracuse vs. Cornell basketball game!

Joe:   Do you get that per diem for service at the Carrier Dome?

Wow and just before that, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday he was in New Orleans! On an insurance junket no less! He does get around. I thought he spent most of his time in NYC. Apparently anywhere but Monroe County.
