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!

Well then...

Well then: Apparently, Oh, SmAlbany! has been honored with an award from Metroland's "Best of 2005":

Best Use of a Political Science Degree and a Laptop

Oh, SmAlbany!


Matt Glassman is hard at work trying to get his dissertation done for a poli-sci degree from Yale, but in the meantime (except for an intentional hiatus this summer, recently over) he keeps up an interesting and fun blog at smalbany.blog spot.com, which veers from centrist politics to restaurant reviews. But SmAlbany really shines when Glassman puts his social science smarts to work, for example, in his careful dissection on May 25 of the statistical methods in a Times Union article on disparities in hiring in Albany or laying out the theoretical ups and downs of a strong-mayor system as regards charter reform.
Geez. All i do is take a month off from blogging, come back for three days, and then go on a week's vacation, and I win a Metroland award. I should stop blogging altogether, maybe they will make me President.

In all seriousness, however, i appreciate the award and thank whoever nominated me.

Regular essays resume tomorrow. Cheers, MG.
