Words Fail, Special New York Edition

Exhibit A: City of Syracuse-- your limited mobility is ugly and wrong. Okay, hopefully after hearing folks complain about this for months and months, maybe the city of Syracuse will work to resolve this situation. It's pretty amazing to see a story that frames "handicap accessibility" not as an issue of government buildings and taxpayer funded buildings, but of people being denied the right to get in and out of their own homes. I understand the importance of zoning, but this? Not so much.

Exhibit B: NY senators agree on getting paid, but not on anything else. From the Governor's office: It turns out that both conferences have come together and signed appropriate documentation to continue receiving their salaries. So there is a power sharing agreement -- but it only includes getting paid. Sigh....
