A Little Light Reading . . .

With the post election lull, we were able to spend some time surfing the web for interesting regional reading. We came across "Medieval Madness" [pdf] by Charles Carino and Frank Giotto, a story about this area -- our story -- how we grew as a region and where we might go. While we might disagree here and there on certain points, the ultimate conclusion, consolidation of all Greater Utica municipalities, is one we see as a possible solution to many of our regional problems.

It's worth the read. It is informative, gets you thinking, and is written in a style that is entertaining. For example, on how Utica got its name:

I'm glad the tag said "Utica"
When they pulled it from the hat.
It could have said "Size Seven."
What kind of name is that?
