Air traffic is not handled by Tallahassee; it is handled by Jacksonville.

You didn't understand my point either. These insignificant items you speak of provide direct and indirect economic impact to Albany. Why not fight for your community rather than handing everything to Tallahassee? Our newspaper and mail already comes from there...lets keep something for US.

I'm not a lilly-livered whining pansy. I've made a lot of sacrifices already under the current administration. Unfortunately, the current administration doesn't understand how to sacrifice...over $1 million has already been spent in Paris on their current jaunt. The elimination of over 100 air traffic control towers only saves lightly less than $40 million. Doesn't make any sense.

Rightasrain - I hope you never have to count on any of these insignificant items you mentioned for a package, a loved one coming from far away, a business call from out of town or a Marine protecting you.

Local jobs are being affected, but I guess that doesn't apply to you. Be careful what you wish for--you just might get it.

This is one topic that Mr. Fletcher and I agree. JT is a great talent and I LOVE his new song "Mirrors". I've had it on replay ever since I saw him perform it on SNL two episodes ago. I have a lot of varied music on my iPod, but I've got a special place in my heart for JT.

And yes, everything you ever wanted to know can be related to a Seinfeld episode.

How's the Obama administration going to spin THAT wonderful news? He can't continue to blame's time for him to accept the fact that his world view is not business friendly or economy friendly. We are circling the drain, all the while putting good folks out of work while handing out more and more to those who vote (D).

800,000 skilled laborers who will not be able to find a job. Mr. President, these are the middle class folks you keep talking about! These are folks who are educated and make real contributions to our economy. Pretty soon, they'll be out there competing for jobs that serve french fries. Yay USA! Circling the drain...

Only in America do we welcome everyone with open arms, give them an Obama phone and an EBT card, bring our military to its knees and let the Chinese, Russians and Middle East walk all over us.

I can hardly wait until all the flock realize what's about to happen to them as a courtesy of ObamaCare on January 1, 2014. The "bridge" program that's supposed to accept those with pre-existing conditions before next January is already out of money. Huh. I'll bet the POTUS didn't figure upon that. I think it had like a $5 billion budget and it's already blown through that. What is next January going to be like for those who MUST obtain insurance and don't need it (the young and healthy, you know, the folks who voted for the President) because of the mandatory nature of getting insurance or pay a fine. They're going to get a big helping of, "oh, I didn't realize that this was going to happen to ME!"

Get ready, your pocketbook is about to get a lot lighter...

I'm sure no one will express their anger and disbelief. BHO will get a pass from his fans like he always does...meanwhile, our country sinks further and further into debt...

I just wish Carlton would acknowledge that a lot of racism that happens around here is reverse. We have blacks in town who feel that they are superior. I've never seen race relations like I've seen in Albany. I've lived in a lot of places and it seems like Albany is stuck in the 1960s where we're still having marches. I see the look of contempt in their faces when they see me on the street. I hear it in their voices when I hold a door open for them and I say a cheerful, "you're welcome!" when they do not thank me.

I don't judge by skin color, but I do judge you when you're wearing pants down around your knees, not graduating high school and have 4 children by the time you're 20, none of whom you are paying for. I'll have to admit that yes, I do feel superior to those individuals.
