On Medicaid/MCare fraud:

We need a governor who will, frankly, give a shit about what’s going on. One who will work tirelessly to come up with real solutions to fix what ails New York, and not just pay lip service to reform. We need a governor who won’t pander to the lobbyists and special interests.

What New York needs to do in order to halt upstate’s brain drain and survive is hold a constitutional convention. Every single way of doing business needs to be re-examined. Every single thing that government does needs to be judged on performance - and if it’s not performing, it needs to be fundamentally changed, or scrapped altogether.


Spitzer better not let us down.

Who also has this cool link of a map of Upstate bloggers and their links.

I am a Liverpool native but now live closer to Rochester and work in the Finger Lakes. I'm glad to see some other local people are catching on to reality. I think you should really read the article by Bill McKibben (author of The End of Nature) in the latest Gourmet magazine. He undertakes an experiment in which he only eats locally produced food for an entire WINTER. Coincidentally, there is also an article about the Finger Lakes and its food culture in the same issue.

By the way, look into hops production in Madison County, just next door to Syracuse. It is historically a hop producing region and I believe efforts are underway to bring the hops sector back.

Please keep blogging and clue us in to local opportunities for CSA, post PO transportation, etc.
