Here and There
The Hein/Bernardo debate last week was held at the Rocking Horse Ranch, after the debate there was a ceremony recognizing the Ranch's 50th year anniversary, I attended and it was a nice event. Apparently, I left a little early and missed Legislator Sue Zimet's attempt to cool off from the 95+ degree weather by jumping in the ranch's pool via the ranch's pool slide with her clothes on. You can't make this stuff up.
A new poll has come out showing Mike Bloomberg ahead of David Patterson in a head to head match up in 2010. These polls are not accurate, not even Bloomberg's billions will be able to beat the Patterson machine that was started with his father the very well respected Basil Patterson. Bloomberg will not be elected Governor, if Patterson decides not to run which is possible, we will elect Andrew Cuomo as the next Governor of this state, and that's a good thing.
Can't help but notice the huge advantage that Mike Hein and Elliott Auerbach have right now over their GOP opponents. Does anyone even know who they are running against? Mike Hein and Elliott Auerbach are everywhere. Len Bernardo and Jim Quigley, the millionaire out of towner's are no where to be seen. It goes to show that Hein and Auerbach are the candidates that care about Ulster County and are taking this race seriously.
Lastly, disappointed that Tom Brokaw has been chosen to replace the irreplaceable Tim Russert. While, this decision had to have been hard and a lose/lose, I just do not see Brokaw having the personality to do the job. I think Chris Matthews would have been a better choice.
