Well it actually happened...

Do not be alarmed, but there is actually something where I'm on the side of Bob Congel. Our wonderful WSTM news aired a story that the FBI was looking into Bob Congel and his relationship with Alaskan Congressman Don Young. Problem is, that was based on a story by McClatchy newspapers reporter Greg Gordon, and Gordon states that is not what he said and he has no evidence to support that. Yet WSTM's Jim Kenyon states he will not retract the story, stating if there was any error it was not his. Okay, I try and avoid coming to the defense of Bob Congel whenever possible, but if Gordon states he has no evidence I think you have to retract it. Maybe if Mr. Kenyon would do some real investigation of his own we wouldn't have this problem. Again, I apologize for being on the side of Congel, I promise to do my best to see that it never happens again.

Joanie Mahoney has finished naming the rest of her transition team. It appears I am not on it.

There are some nice tales of open government in Syracuse, although the paper's timing is a bit late as usual. The state is holding open budget hearings where you can talk about what programs are important to you, the idea being that legislators have to trim and hopefully they'll do that from what people do not state is most important at these hearings. Those wishing to offer testimony should register in advance. posted this at 7 am on Tuesday (yes, yesterday), with the hearing apparently being at 1 pm on Tuesday (yes, yesterday), so good luck with that registering in advance thing. You can still go to hearings in Brooklyn (Thursday) and Long Island (Friday). And Congressman James Walsh will answer questions tomorrow at 7 pm at C Grant Grimshaw School. They've seen fit to post this on with slightly over 24 hours notice, so that's a 400% increase in hours notice. Still seems a bit late.
