Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Andy Cuomo to "Clean up Albany"?

Governor-in-waiting Andrew Cuomo claims his first priority is to "Clean up Albany".  When they fill out their new electronic ballots next Tuesday, how many New Yorkers have will ever have ever heard of the other Andrew: Andrew Farkas

In 2006, the Village Voice reported on Andy Cuomo's involvement with real estate developer Farkas while Andy C. was head of Bill Clinton's HUD.  Andy C., working his trademark shtick, pursued a high-profile, headline grabbing civil suit against Farkas.  This time, however, Cuomo backed off as his term at HUD drew to a close.  Then, returning to private life, young Cuomo quickly scarfed up two million bucks in salary and and contributions, from Farkas!

It is said we get the government we deserve.   Before Tuesday, please read the whole Voice article, which is still available online - click here.
