  • Half of the $60 million that Governor Cuomo has pledged to support tourism to New York is coming from the Federal government’s Hurricane Sandy relief fund. These funds, not ironically, were never earmarked for relief, but actually just for this purpose. Another pet peeve – in a YNN interview with a director of the State’s Economic Development office (please tell me why that office exists in the first place), the news anchor’s first question was something like, “Mr. so and so, tell us about the new generous support the state is providing to the upstate NY region for tourism development?” I would politely suggest that the word “generous” does not apply to ANY use of taxpayer funds for ANY purpose. Use a new word. 
  • And from Chris M. we now learn that our dear leaders in NYS have been blessed with being on the cover of a … Wheaties box. Indeed you cannot make this stuff up. How generous!

    I wonder how many of those boxes will be bought to line the bottom of the birdcage.

    I have seen those ads in prime time on FNC.
