    I don't know what's left there - most of it (east of McKinley, on North St.) looks vacant and has been that way for many years. It's pretty sad for people who grew up here during IBM's hayday. The building directly across from the Watson office (not sure if that used to house Security or Personnel) is just falling apart. I really wish they would level those just to eliminate the eyesore. Of course there is no hurry because, IIRC, the Maines/Matthews clan got an 80% reduction in assessment years ago so they may be paying less per sq. ft. for an industrial complex than most people pay on their residence. Yup, the off shore people got on-the-job paid training to eventually take those jobs away. In the usual warped short sighted fashion, I'm sure the responsible IBM execs and CEO got big bonuses for that. The US based workers got....the shaft.

    Now That is A Damn Shame.

    I must have missed footage of the politicians calling for defunding the Captial Police. Oh wait, they want to defund our police. I see how that works now.

    If I am to believe what has been said over the last 40 years (or more) - that MJ is a gateway to harder drugs - the dealers have absolutely nothing to worry about. They will have a booming business soon. As for your last sentence - we took that fork in the road a while back. Lately we are just adding bricks onto the accelerator.

    The media has finally turned on Cuomo

    1st sexual harassment accuser came out on December 13, 2020. 8 more have come forward since then. 107 days (and counting) - he is still in office.

    NY Legalizes Marijuana

    OK, I'll play along. NYPD is working on ending Qualified Immunity for it's officers. That means that there will no longer be a legal 'shield' around them and you will be able to sue a police officer. "Qualified immunity is the practice of not being able to file a civil lawsuit against a government official performing his or her official duties unless they "clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known."" So my question is, when will Qualified Immunity be terminated for Cuomo, Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Carl Heastie so that all the families of people that get injured or killed by drivers under the influence of pot can sue them for promoting it? We already have a problem with alcohol DWI, let's make MJ more readily available...what can possibly go wrong?

    DA Korchak can't act surprised or claim ignorance

    If that's true, and we actually had a diligent press/reporters - THAT SHOULD BE FRONT PAGE/LEAD NEWS. Maybe Mr. Joseph (who is always lamenting the death of journalism) will take the lead on this one......

    The media has finally turned on Cuomo

    The law firm hired by the Democrats to 'investigate' Cuomo's compulsive sexual abuse addiction has ties to......you guessed it.....Cuomo. https://www.longislandpress.com/2021/03/23/cuomo-impeachment-probe-may-take-months-law-firms-ties-to-cuomo-raise-doubts/ https://nypost.com/2021/03/17/law-firm-tapped-to-probe-gov-cuomo-has-conflict-of-interest/ But we have been reassured - "The representative stressed that any concerns of a conflict of interest or bias were unfounded in this regard."
  8. This is how law enforcement is supposed to work. It's not a place to park your arse until retirement.
  9. If there are beings out there with such 'advanced technology' allowing them to fly across the galaxy/universe, the real question is, why would they want to make contact with earth? Hopefully not 'To Serve Man'.
  10. Used to be employers/coworkers (for the most part) would not call you at home unless it was an emergency, but now that home IS the office and everyone has a cell phone tethered to their body it's like you are on the job 24/7.
  11. I wish I could find the article I read years ago that talked about productivity of a typical US middle-manager vs. one in Europe. The US guy was in the office by 7, usually had a 'working' lunch, stayed 1 to 2 hours beyond quitting time daily and usually took work home with them. The typical European manager would get to work 'around' 9:30, get an hour lunch, and be out of the office by 4pm, rarely working OT and hardly ever took work home. The US guy got 2 weeks of vacation and may or may not get a yearly bonus, his counterpart got 4 weeks vacation minimum to start and, depending on position, at least 1 or 2 'bonus' paychecks per year. The conclusion of the article was that US workers weren't really more productive - they just worked themselves to death. That was then. In today's day and age, I wish they would re-do this comparison. I bet if we are actually getting 3 days work out of the current crop of graduates were are damn lucky.

    Amazon Last Mile to Corporate Park

    Let's see how the unionization vote turns out.
  13. Just the news? Have you watched any commercials lately? TV programs? Entertainment awards? IMO this is going to have the opposite outcome that they are expecting. Or maybe that was the plan all along.

    Joe Biden is mentally ill

    Remember the field day the press had when Trump stumbled on a ramp a while back? Let's see how they handle this one. I'll say it again - I actually feel bad for Biden. This is elder abuse plain and simple.
