Saratoga Springs

Uh oh, the Massachusetts legislature is back in session, which means the casino lobby has got the promo thing going full blast.



I just got back from Saratoga Springs where I was attending the horse races.



Private sector controlled gambling = good. Public sector controlled gambling = bad.

On the way we stopped in Albany. Going places with me means you have to check out the government buildings. All Power to the People!



This is the legendary horse trainer Nick Zito being interviewed by the media.



Here's a video I made of Sam the Bugler who performs before each race.

Artist John Sendelbach captured this view from Shelburne Falls last week. Notice how close the Bridge of Flowers is to being washed away!



East Longmeadow's Lazer 99 has a cool car.

Clare Higgins was a good mayor!

An elected official should be as fit as Scott Brown, as smart as Hillary, and as sleazy as Richie Neal.

Because otherwise, our politicians will be as fat as Chris Chistie, as dumb as Dom, and as naive as Antonette.
