Monserrate belongs in jail.

I hope Ford wins.

1. You don't have to cite Texas football for budget bluffs -- in NYC the longstanding tradition is to threaten to lay off police officers.

2. School districts outside of NYC all pay with state funds for transportation for students who live beyond a certain difference from their schools (including parochial and private schools), either by providing bus service or commutation passes on public transportation. Why don't NYC students get the same support from the state?

... in fact, please ask when the entire way divorce is handled in NYS will be brought into the 21st Century? The way it happens now is an abomination and harms so many people's lives, particularly childrens'.

Please ask the Senator Schneiderman when the legislature will take up custody reform in favor of shared parenting in case of divorce?

Please ask the State Senator what cuts they are making in the Senate's yearly expenditures?
