I Heart NY – Just not Certain Politicians

At times I realize that I do “heart” New York.  Sometimes, it’s a breath of the crisp Fall air.  Maybe it’s a glimpse of the Adirondacks.  Heck, even a great weekend of RPI vs. Union hockey reminds me of why I enjoy living here.

And that lasts until the blasted politicians ruin it for me.  Today, it’s news about two of my favorite ethically-challenged public -ahem- servants: Charlie Rangel and Joe Bruno.

You might think that I’d be happy that Rangel was found guilty of ethics violations.  Nah, not so much.  Just look at this statement from YNN’s story:

Rangel is not expected to be expelled from Congress, but could receive a censure or reprimand.

Oh, yippee, skippy.  Justice will be served.

To top it off, the legal issues surrounding good ol’ Joe Bruno and his conviction continue to drag on.  But don’t worry.  Just like Rangel, I’m betting that he’ll get a slap on the wrist, too.  After all, this is New York. We take care of our politicians who’ve been representin’.

Awww, the heck with it.  I’m gonna step outside for some fresh air, maybe talk to some neighbors, and enjoy the remnants of Fall.  Today, I’m gonna “heart” NY.

But when 20 below zero rolls around in January, along with the next property tax bill… maybe not so much.

    I believe that we desperately need to hear the stories of Ordinary Citizens who make a difference in our lives, our communities and our world.

    Why not be Ordinary?

    Why not make a difference?
