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!

Last week's garbage

Last week's garbage: Two quick followup stories worth mentioning:

(1) Continuing a report from two weeks ago, Section 2 high school running put on one the greatest shows in the history of high school running at Saturday's New York State championship. On the boy's side, team titles in Class AA, A, and C, including Saratoga defeating the supposed #1 team in the nation. The three fastest times of the day were turned in by Section 2 boys, and six of the top 12. The finish of the AA race looked more like the Suburban Council championship than the state meet, with suburban councilers going 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 9th. On the girls side, team titles in Class A and AA. It's not impossible that Section 2 teams could win the both the boys and girls national team title this year and that section 2 could qualify 6 individuals into the 64-person Foot Locker national individual championship race.

(2) If you'd like to hear my appearance on WAMC's Weekly Rundown, it's available here in .mp3 format. The segment I'm on starts at about the 16 minute mark and runs for maybe 15 minutes.
