The Opposing View

Today there is a letter to the editor chastising the TU for not supporting the building of the Albany Convention Center by running a cartoon showing why Albany's "uniqueness" might not actually be an advantage. He requests that the TU "get on board".... I guess he missed Fred Lebrun's column. He also provides no justification for his argument. And he lives in Guilderland.

I'm sure he'll love a new convention center that he can drive to to attend the boat show, eat at a new "safe" restaurant in a big glass building ("Honey, its like Crossgates in the City!") and then return to the suburbs. How about we put the convention center in Guilderland? Perhaps then he might read the Brookings Institute Report.

All aboard?
