    Airport. Why?

    75 miles to our North, Syracuse's airport is at capacity. Every time we use the Syrscuse or Scranton airports we see people we know or meet folks from the Binghamton area. Maybe Broome County's airport when not being used by local billionaires can offer up some of its parking and run a shuttle bus from its lot to Syracuse, Albany, Ithaca, Elmira or Scranton, all of which are leaving ours in the dust. https://www.syracuse.com/news/2020/02/finding-a-parking-spot-at-syracuse-airport-becoming-a-challenge-as-passenger-traffic-grows.html?outputType=amp&__twitter_impression=true

    Draft John Solak to challenge do-nothing Donna Lupardo

    Ha. Guys like John provide a valuable service and I wish there were more like him, but they never run for office. I wish he'd stop with the nonsense collages on his twitter and go back to actual facts and attempts at interviews. He has exposed so much buffoonery and corruption doing so. If only more people paid attention.

    Corona Virus

    What does that have to do with anything? Sure there are rich Chinese but the majority ARE poor. Kind of like here. Just because there are billionaires and those close to it in Broome county doesn't not mean that we don't have people living in abject poverty. So by your logic since some Broome residents own villas in Italy or islands in the Carribean, none of us can complain about poverty simply because a Chinese guy had the money to visit Paris?

    Binghamton University receives $60M donation to build new baseball stadium

    You're close on some aspects but not on others.

    Binghamton University receives $60M donation to build new baseball stadium

    And entirely out of touch. As well as apparently capable of ever truly giving or receiving without expectation. If you have $60 million to throw at something frivolous, you don't need anything else in return. These donors tend to be aged folks looking to leave a legacy at dear old Alma Mater.

    None of the above. But hopefully it inspires others to donate to the programs or departments that inspired them in a similar manner.

    Libous Announces Run for State Assembly

    At least Angelino has worked his entire life as opposed to having everything handed to him. He has experience managing publicly funded budgets. Little Nicky not so much. Too bad Angelino didn't wade in without the Bijoy connection.
  8. Gene Wilder is the toughest guy in Broome county. I hope my dear friend Ginny doesn't contract Corona virus from one of her torrid make out sessions.

    Coronavirus in Broome County?

    I just listened to CBC (Canadian) coverage of this. They talked about the masks and their lack if effectiveness, as many aren't worn properly, people contaminate by scratching noses and eyes etc. They also reported a shortage of masks in Canada.

    Libous Announces Run for State Assembly

    What makes him a contender? DNA? He has ZERO experience. He's from a long line of patronage and back room politics. He has nothing to offer.

    Will (can?) Someone Explain This To Me?

    That book is a painful slog but, like 1984 it is like having a playbook for the times we are living in. And no. I read it when I was 19. 😀

    Seems Wesley Mouch, Kip Chalmers, Floyd Ferris, Lillian Rearden and the gang are already in power.

    This JUST IN Battisti Lawsuit Thrown Out By JUDGE!!!!!

    I never said he was, is, or could be a good attorney. Never. I would never hire him. But from his fawning fanbase, number of votes, and yes, the image of a well dressed lawyer he plays, I am sure that the uninformed all over Broome county would use him. The same folks that voted for him. He could take the spot of the aging Ron Benjamin. And I'd rather see that happen than for him to land some no show public job at B.C.C. or somewhere in the courts where his BFF Senator Fred could get him a high paying job with state benefits on my tax dollars.

    This race could have a silver lining for Paul. He got a ton of exposure and publicity. And, really, he got a lot of votes. He could easily leverage that into a nice practice, especially representing some of the big names that supported him. The worst thing he could do for any of his political aspirations, and probably in terms of money, would be to land in a public sector job. He is media savvy and good looking enough to make a fortune in defense or personal injury law.

    Delusional George Phillips - He just doesn't get it.

    Whatever happened to the casino that handsome young professor had built at BCC? Where are the students who get that training able to find jobs without leaving the area?
