Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning


"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

Summer kickoff...

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, the traditional start of summer and the traditional start of great weather in upstate, NY. Unfortunately, it has felt more like late October this week, and the 'cast for the weekend is warmer but soggy.

Nevertheless, I can't endorse this response:
Richard and Giovanna Etkin of Niskayuna planned to head for Lake George for some boating, strolling and relaxing at a family vacation home. Then, the weather changed their minds.

"We decided this morning we will go to New York City," where the couple probably will enjoy the theater, dining and shopping, Giovanna Etkin said.
Ugh. The weather turned so were cancelling our outdoor plans and going to New York City for Memorial Day weekend. And they have a summer house in Lake George! [I'll be glad to make use of it. -ed. No, it's not worth it unless you can use the pool...]

Well, at least all the traffic will be going the other way on the Thruway...
