Note to Ulster Comptroller


Dear Elliott: When announcing a no-laughing-matter important audit about the Health Department, it might be prudent to not smile when announcing the report.

Also, your photo was shrunk, and you're missing an apostrophe in your (yet-to-be-updated) blog.


UPDATE: The blog was updated. "Peoples" still needs an apostrophe.

Update: Apostrophe fixed (see comment) and English wins.. Palens still lose.
Damming report follows.

A Marist poll of New York City residents released today reveals that 45 percent of of residents think it’s a good idea to have the trial of five alleged terrorists in New York City while 41 percent believe it’s a bad one. 14 percent aren’t sure.

Also, he's not "following" you, either.

Hudson Valley Vampire Alert!

From the Hudson Valley Film Commission:

If you were driving up Route 28 through Andes on Friday and feared that vampires and armed marauders had taken over – FEAR NOT. Shotgun carrying vigilantes were simply battling two vampires on the set of STAKE LAND, a Glass Eye Pix feature
film production directed by Andes resident, Jim Mickle.
