Other People's Blogs . . .

Interesting reading may be had in some of the recent posts of other area bloggers . . .

NYCO ruminates on the relationship between stuff and community planning.

Cathy at New Hartford Online gives us the scoop on how the Town makes some residents pay for their water lines, while making all taxpayers pay to give them free to other residents. (Maddening!) .

Finally, Gear at CNY Snakepit contrasts the very different public reactions to two separate Utica fires.

I wish gear would let us comment. That fire post was perfect.

All the hoopla of the brewery being saved, the speeches and baby kissing. The proclamations and everyone getting patted on the back. Sounds like a whole lot of BS to me.

I agree, Engraver ... comments would be nice . . . but Gear's post was perfect. He is a gifted writer.

You're both too kind.

Not to hijack Strike's comments, and the irony of doing so doesn't escape me, but I always welcome comments via email. I just hate having to deal with comment spam in a post.

Hey gear, I notice you just signed up on 'the corner'. I'll just comment about your blog there. ;-)

You know, I don't get all that much spam on my blog, which is a good thing.

Don't you dare. I KNOW where you work, live and play! ;-) Hehe.
