Cheap is not better. I really hope this falls through! Our dedicated drivers don’t deserve this.
Maybe they should have bid a little lower; can't blame the school for giving the job to the lowest bidder.
If Governor Cuomo gets his way, criminal defendants will no longer have to post monetary bail in misdemeanor and non-violent felony cases He says it's unfair to those with no financial resources:
Don't commit crimes and you don't have to worry about bail.
Innocent until proven guilty. If you pose no threat or flight risk, there should be no bail.
Why doesn't he buy them a steak dinner and put them up at the Ritz.

Monsignor Robert J. McCarthy, a colorful and well-known Catholic priest in northern New York, died Saturday morning. He was 99:
Ministered to the carnival workers for years; had a huge heart. He has a special place in heaven.
He was very personable. He always had a smile on his face.
Heaven has gained another angel.
