Finally Friday

When You're Not You're Not
The Albany Chamber has announced this year's Hot Ten, their list of the area's most influential leaders. Among those honored are Joe Bruno, George Pataki, Shirley Ann Jackson, and CEG head Kelly Lovell. The list also includes the chiefs of a couple of tech companies, nano-guru Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, and the president of HVCC. I think it's great that the chamber takes the time to engage in shameless ass kissing to hail these worthy folks, don't you?

What Happens in Vegas Stays In Vegas
We should be so lucky. WROW morning host Paul Vandenburgh spent twenty solid minutes yesterday complaining how cold it is in Las Vegas ---so cold, in fact, that the people out there all go around in "sleeveless coats." Sleeveless coats? I believe that back east they call those "vests." He went on to say that, "The people out here are baffled at how I pull this off every morning. They've never seen anything like it." Those sleeveless coat-wearing Nevadans are a perceptive bunch.
