STEPHANIE MINER: ROUND 2 Reflections on a second term By Walt Shepperd

Mourning the end of a relationship becomes Jeff’s Electra.

ON THE RECORD Walt Shepperd is a man who, it seems, needs no introduction. Everybody in Syracuse already knows him. Shepperd is one of those people — think Dick Case, and Gus Bliven, and Joan Vadeboncoeur — who became journalism icons in this town. Ever wonder what the somewhat archaic phrase “hale fellow well met” means. Just watch Shepperd working his way through Armory Square, and you’ll know. I’ve known of Shepperd for quite a while. But sealed inside the office at Clinton Square, I hadn’t met him until I joined the New Times a little more than a year ago. He had worked at the New Times for decades and was a former senior editor, but the relationship was somewhat estranged. No longer. He’s a regular contributor again, and I think it’s fair to say we’re both happy about that. It’s probably neither an exaggeration nor just a figure of speech to say that he’s forgotten more about what goes on in Syracuse than I ever knew. And, more important to me, he still has connections that give him more knowledge and understanding about what’s Photography by going on around here than Michael Davis. nearly any reporter I could name. Cover design by So, it was no surprise that when he Natalie Davis asked Mayor Stephanie Miner to sit down to talk at the start of her second term, she said yes. They talked of her philosophy looking at issues like the Interstate 81 reconstruction and the sort-of-proposed stadium to replace the Dome. What’s buzzing They talked of what she views the most. as the accomplishments of her first term and how she hopes they’ll carry over to her second. She talked about Onondaga County Executive Joannie MaFollow us honey, and about Gov. @syracusenew Andrew Cuomo. Good stuff, as you’d expect from Shepperd. That’s why it’s the cover story this week. You can find it on page 17.

Curses, Foiled Again


Stephen Furr, 48, denied breaking into a Boston home and stealing copper pipe from a boiler, even after police found him hiding beneath the basement stairs with a pipe cutter (described as “a burglarious tool”) and copper pipe appearing to have been cut from the boiler. The homeowners called police after the thief’s loud banging on the pipes woke them. (Boston Globe)

Sheriff’s deputies responding to reports of a shooting in Jefferson Parish, La., found Akili Bailey, 20, with gunshot wounds to his buttock, leg and foot. When paramedics tried to help Bailey, he refused to get up and appeared to be “clenching his buttocks together,” according to the police report. Authorities attributed his behavior to his injury, but a doctor who treated Bailey at the hospital retrieved a small bag containing 2.5 grams of cocaine from his buttocks. (New Orleans’ The Times-Picayune)

Problems Solved

Mammoth offshore wind farms would protect coastal regions from hurricanes, according to Mark Jacobson, an engineering professor at Stanford University. He calculates that grouping 78,000 wind turbines, each 50 feet tall, in a strategic location, such as the Louisiana coast, could lower a hurricane’s maximum wind speed 50 percent to 80 percent (up to 92 mph) and reduce its storm surge up to 80 percent, all while generating pollution-free electricity. Jacobson explained that the plan would work because the turbines produce power by taking energy from the wind, thus slowing it down. (USA Today)

Social Media Follies

Patrick Snay received $80,000 to settle his age-discrimination suit against Miami’s Gulliver Preparatory School, but the agreement included a stipulation forbidding disclosure of settlement details. The Snays’ daughter promptly notified her 1,200 Facebook friends: “Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.” A judge voided the settlement. (CNN)


Going George Costanza One Better

Robert McKevitt, 27, deposited $1 in a vending machine at his warehouse job in Milford, Iowa, and selected a Twix candy bar, but it snagged on the spiral hook. “I was, like, ‘Oh, man.’ So I put in another dollar, and then it wouldn’t do anything,” he said. He tried banging on the machine and rocking it back and forth, but the candy bar wouldn’t budge. Determined to get the snack he paid for, McKevitt commandeered a 4-ton forklift, lifted the vending machine 2 feet and let it drop on the concrete floor. He repeated the maneuver six times; three candy bars fell into the chute to be retrieved. A supervisor confronted him, and five days later he was fired. After his claim for jobless benefits was denied, McKevitt acknowledged, “That machine was trouble.” (Des Moines Register)

Everything You Know Is Wrong

A textbook used by more than 50,000 students in India’s Gujarat state contains more than 120 factual, spelling and grammatical mistakes, including that “Japan dropped a nuclear bomb on the United States during World War II.” The Gujarat government hasn’t withdrawn the books but did “set up a two-member committee to look into these errors and make changes immediately,” according to State Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama.

“We will not let our decisions be made out of fear. We will live our lives in freedom.” — Rudolph Giuliani on the first TAKE Saturday Night Live show after the World Trade Center attack.


By Ed Griffin-Nolan

SNOWDEN’S REVELATIONS SAVING OUR FREEDOM If I had asked you on Sept. 10, 2001, to indicate on a map a country that assassinates its own citizens by remote control without due process, warehouses prisoners on a remote island to keep them out of reach of its judicial processes and monitors the telephone and email correspondence of all its people, chances are you would not have pointed your finger at the United States of America. Yet in the 50 long seasons since the towers fell, we have gradually slipped into this state of affairs. Guantanamo, the Patriot Act, unmanned drones. That’s the price we have paid for a promise to keep us safe from that terrible threat. Last week, at long last, we may have begun to walk the road back to balance. For years, the National Security Agency has been spying on you with the permission of Congress and the president. It knows who you call, how often and for how long you speak. Ditto for your email. Telecommunications companies are required to quietly hand over this information to the government. Furthermore, they are forbidden from telling you, should you inquire, that they have done so. This state of affairs grew out of the deal with the devil that we timidly assented to in the fearful aftermath of 9/11. Not knowing exactly who the enemy was or where, we cast a wide net. Citizens handed over rights that we realize, only in hindsight, are essential to keeping us free. And so, the ship of state in the Age of Terror began a slow turn toward a mid-course correction. The House of Representatives last week voted to change the way the NSA does business, to “rein in the dragnet collection of data by the National Security Agency (NSA) and

other government agencies, increase transparency of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), provide businesses the ability to release information regarding FISA requests, and create an independent constitutional advocate to argue cases before the FISC.” Reps. Richard Hanna (R-Barneveld) and Dan Maffei (D-Syracuse) voted against the law. “Unfortunately, today’s legislation does not go far enough to protect the personal privacy of Americans, which is why I stood with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to oppose it,” Maffei said in a prepared statement. Hanna said the same. A year ago, Edward Snowden was the new Osama bin Laden: public enemy No. 1. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) called him a traitor. President Barack Obama vowed to hunt him down. Now Hanna and Maffei agree with Snowden that the national security state Snowden sought to expose is not the nation we wish to live in. So why does Snowden remain exiled in Russia? None of the spying that Maffei and Hanna correctly seek to rein in would be public knowledge if Snowden had not told the world what he knew. There would have been no vote in the House last week without Snowden. Without Snowden, your phone company would routinely be shipping your phone records to Big Brother behind your back. Without Edward Snowden, we would be ignorant and less free. So why compound the injury by continuing to persecute him? It’s time to drop the charges against Snowden, and to let him come home. SNT

Most would recoil at the thought of honoring a man who has been vilified as a traitor, but what did Snowden betray? He didn’t betray America, he betrayed a warped, frightened version of America that wrongfully, in a spasm of fear, turned over too much of our freedoms to the state. And he has sacrificed his life for that. Last week, we marched through the streets to honor those whose sacrifices have kept us free. Snowden has given up all that was familiar to him to let us know we were in danger. He has done a great national service. Let’s bring him home. He doesn’t need a parade. But he does deserve our gratitude.

The number of spies exposed by the Bush adminstration (on purpose)


The number of spies exposed by the Obama administration (accidentally)


The number of spies exposed because of leaks from Edward Snowden (accidentally).

Well, what about the danger posed by people like Edward Snowden who expose secrets? Aren’t our people put in harm’s way when secrets are exposed? This is a valid concern, which is why the media often take great pains when exposing stories to make sure that people are not needlessly put at risk. In the year since Snowden spoke out about abuses of the Patriot Act, exactly one spy has been named, based on his revelations. That happened in January, when the New York Times posted a redacted document online, which a clever hacker was able to decipher. The Bush administration, deliberately outed a spy: Valerie Plame, whose husband was a vocal critic of the war in Iraq. Last week in Afghanistan, the White House press office issued a news release listing the officials who were briefing Obama during his stop at Bagram Air Force Base. The list included the name of the CIA station chief in Kabul. Oops. So much for secrets. | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14


EXTEND THE DELAY WAIT ON FRACKING By Emily Bishop Thank you for publishing the ProPublica article by Naveena Sadasivam on fracking and health studies. It has been clear to the majority of New Yorkers that fracking is harmful to the environment and human health and that there is a lack of evidence that it can be done safely. The impact of fracking on human health is the reason why, on Thursday, May 29, the coalition of Concerned Health Professionals of New York (CHPNY) delivered a letter to Gov. Andrew Cuomo and acting Department of Health Commissioner Howard Zucker to urge them to enact at least a three-year moratorium on fracking so that current studies can be completed to determine the full scope of fracking’s effect on human health. The letter provides an extensive list of the latest studies and science on fracking, stating: “The totality of the science — which now encompasses hundreds of peer-reviewed studies, additional reports and case examples — shows that permitting fracking in New York would pose significant threats to the air, water, health and safety of New Yorkers.” And, as it is stated in Sadasivam’s article, we really should be looking at the entire cycle of fracking, from the extraction of water that will be used in the fracking operations to the increased methane emissions that will come from its use in homes. There is so much in between that hasn’t been studied yet, which is one reason why CHPNY is calling for a moratorium. Dr. Sheila Bushkin-Bedient, of CHPNY and a member of the Institute for Health and the Environment at SUNY Albany, said, “Scientific evidence is mounting quickly, indicating that unconventional shale gas operations or ‘fracking’ are already leading to observable health hazards. Prevention demands, a moratorium on fracking for three to five years so that we can become better informed, and devote more time to developing healthier, sustainable energy options.” The letter from CHPNY identifies the key trends in human health effects, including: well water contamination, disposal of radioactive fracking wastewater and air quality impacts.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS SCARY, A CARBON TAX IS NOT By Diane Williamson The National Climate Assessment was released recently. It details the observed and predicted effects of climate change in the United States. Scary stuff. The panel predicted that warming could exceed 10 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of this century. That might seem like a long way off, but I have two young kids who will not even be out of high school until 2030. My grandkids will definitely feel the effects of global warming. If we are already experiencing “extended periods of unusual heat,” just imagine them 10 degrees hotter. Warmer weather means more droughts, like the current historic droughts in California and Texas. Droughts spell trouble not just for those who like to wash their cars and

water their lawns. These droughts will raise food prices and put people out of work. While I occasionally joke about in the future being able to grow real oranges in the orange grove at Syracuse University, real fruit farmers are not laughing. Do you remember the exceptionally warm early spring in 2012, which caused apple trees to bloom too early and then die in a series of hard freezes, wiping out 60 percent of the apple harvest that year? There are similar problems to come, for all types of agriculture. In addition, here in Syracuse we can expect more flooding, like the kind we had last summer, due to a rising frequency of torrential rains. Understanding climate change is difficult because it involves predicting the future, and that can be done with Frank Cammuso

only limited certainty. Nevertheless, all the climate simulations (which accurately model the present) predict negative consequences. The uncertainty could only be for the worse. Scientists are as sure that fossil fuel use causes global warming as they are that smoking cigarettes causes cancer. Don’t take my word for it: Ask NASA. Its website is one of the best for measuring and explaining climate change. We need to quit smoking. Well, smoking coal, oil and natural gas, that is. Fortunately, there exists a relatively painless, free-market solution to this problem: Make it more expensive to put CO2 in the atmosphere. Raising the price of cigarettes has done more to reduce the rate of cigarette smoking in the U.S., which is at a historic low, than all of the educational and health campaigns combined. Therefore, just like a tax on cigarettes, the answer is a carbon tax on the companies that sell fossil fuels. When it is more expensive to pollute, all of our economic attention will be directed at developing renewable energy. Even if 97 percent of the climate scientists are wrong and climate change is a big conspiracy, a carbon tax is still a good idea. In creating a disincentive for fossil fuel energy (coal, oil and natural gas) and an incentive for the development of renewable resources, the fee promotes U.S. energy independence. Proposed legislation (supported by the Syracuse Citizens Climate Lobby) turns the fee into a rebate for every American. The total collected from fossil fuel companies will be divided by the number of taxpayers; easy as pie, the check’s in the mail. In other words, this proposal is revenue-neutral, so even Republicans who vowed never to raise taxes can support it. Most importantly, the proposed legislation imposes a tariff on imports from countries without a similar carbon fee, to not disadvantage American production. Cynics say that China will never get on board, but this tariff effectively targets China. China already has a small carbon tax, which it would be prompted to increase. A carbon fee is in the interests of ordinary Americans — through job creation in renewable energy, energy independence, and money in their pockets through rebate checks. Even if you are not scared about climate change, a carbon tax is a good idea. SNT Diane Williamson lives in Syracuse.

JEFF KRAMER By Jeff Kramer

Recently declassified documents show that the U.S. aircraft carrier involved in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 that contributed TAKE to the escalation of the Vietnam War was actually a Buick Electra 225 equipped with pontoons. Fighter jets took off from the hood and landed on the trunk.


Michael Davis Photo

IT’S JUST TIME TO MOVE ON … IN A BUICK Gracefully Aging California Dream Girl Seeks Passionate Road Warrior with Disposable Income and Good Hair I’m a curvy middle-aged head-turner who is looking for a new relationship with a licensed motorist who isn’t intimidated by a powerful presence. I have a huge body and a slight drinking problem, but I’m tons of fun. Literally. If you’re tired of cheap, immature, plastic types and ready to cruise down Large and Lovely Lane, we should talk. Wanna hear more? My name is Electra 225. I was born into the prestigious Buick family in 1969. You do the math. I’m a California girl through and through. I’m 18-and-a-half feet long (225 inches) with mocha-colored skin and a leathery seat. My internal clock is stuck at 11:18, so I tend to run late. My factory radio doesn’t work, either, but turn my key and you’ll hear the sweetest music there is: the low, sexy rumble of my rebuilt 420. I sound like a love child of Barry White and the USS Nimitz. Oh, and I like to go topless. A lot. You’re no doubt wondering: Why is a California princess reduced to running a personal ad in an alternative weekly in Syracuse, N.Y.? Hey, we all hit a bump in the road now and then. My bump was Kramer.

I hooked up with him in 2000 out in Newport Beach. I was living with another guy then. I don’t recall how many guys there were before that. Two. Four. Ten. Who knows? Times were different, especially back in the ’70s. It’s all a blur. Anyway, I’d heard rumors that Kramer was really hoping to score a classic pickup, but he seemed nice enough, so I let him take me home. He would park me in his garage out of the sun’s glare and lovingly polish my fenders. He’d drive me to work or to the beach to show me off. He even took me to Vegas. I liked him, or thought I did. I liked his dog, Nate, too. Not so crazy about the wife, however. She seemed afraid of me — like I might explode at any moment. OK, I did explode. Just one time. On Interstate 5 en route to Dodger Stadium. It was just a minor engine seize. No biggie. Wanna know how Mr. Local Celebrity Jeff Kramer reacted? He blamed the victim. He locked me in that garage for nearly a year and inflicted upon me the most abusive language imaginable. Finally, he scraped together enough money to get my engine rebuilt ... by a complete moron.

Had Kramer or his ace mechanic listened to me, they would have heard me shouting, “Guys, guys! You’re putting the pistons in backwards!!!” They also would have heard me screaming that one of the pistons was the wrong type and lacked a key journal, which condemned part of my engine to being chronically starved for oil. I sucked it up. I dug deep into my proud GM heritage, and I made that wrongly rebuilt engine work. In 2003, when Kramer moved me to Syracuse, I stoically spent winters in the garage — I still haven’t seen snow; give Kramer credit for that — while in summers I provided miles of trouble-free service until I overheated in the Gay Pride Parade. Like, who didn’t? Also, it’s possible that I exploded again, on Route 20 in LaFayette. This time, the rebuild was done by Fehlman Brothers, on Midler Avenue, and it was done right. They’re not cheap, but neither am I. That was six years ago, and I’ve never felt more awesome. I am Buick. Hear me roar. Like most ladies of a certain age, I can be temperamental. Sometimes, for example, I’m tempted to drive back to California and put that mechanic’s liver in backwards just to see how he likes it. But I always cool down. Of course I do. I had my fan shroud replaced. And now it’s time to replace the man in my life, so I can stroll down life’s highway with someone who understands me or at least who can tighten a freakin’ battery cable without calling AAA. (They call ’em wrenches, Dumbass. Look into it.) See, these days Kramer would rather ride his stupid bicycle all over town like a circus chimp and kvetch about global warming than spend time with me. But let’s keep it classy. Kramer and I have drifted apart. That’s all you need to know. That, and he has a tiny crankshaft.

Curtis was an intern for the Campbell Conversations last year. Grant Reeher (GR): Where are we as a nation in terms of women holding elected office? Kathleen Gore (KG): New York ranks 33rd in the nation for the percentage of women in the State Legislature. It has only 21 percent; the national average is 24 percent. Alexandra Curtis (AC): And looking at the U.S. Senate, where we have 20 percent of women serving in those positions. (In the House of Representatives), I believe we are at about 18 percent. But we have been riding between 18 and 20 percent there for the past decade. GR: Why do we seem to be stuck at about a fifth of women in these important legislatures? KG: It’s a very complicated question. Women need to run for office more; they don’t. Women need to be encouraged to run for office more, and they need to be given the support to run for office more. We believe that the will for women to run for office – local, state and national – is there. In fact, in local terms, women hold the highest percentage of offices.

GR: Does part of Elect Her’s mission concern how women are viewed, meaning the assumptions that are made about young women in higher education? And how they are encouraged or not encouraged to think about pursuing positions of political leadership? KG: I think perception does play a big part in it, and another part is how women view themselves, how they view their career track, how they view their capabilities, getting a degree, studying and running for office and how they look at the long term. They don’t have the mentors that men do; they don’t have the examples. And I think we need to ask more young women why they don’t run for public office and see what they say. We can philosophize and guess, but we ought to ask them. GR: Allie, what’s been your experience of this? AC: I got involved in student government as soon as I came to Syracuse, and I realized straight off the bat that there weren’t many women involved at all, and when looking at the executive board that was in place when I came in, there were no women serving. One of the trends that have been cited across college campuses is that you have this sort of goodold-boys club that still exists in student governments across the United States. You see a lot of more women involved in undergraduate education, and there is a higher enrollment of women, but you still see about 60 percent men serving in the executive positions of student body government. And so when I got involved with this, I wanted to find out a lot more, and

that is when I found out about Elect Her. There are a lot of women who are involved in leadership positions in college campuses, but they seek positions in Greek organizations, service organizations, dance troupes – things that are more pertinent to women or organizations that are more focused towards women as opposed to student government. Women do understate their qualifications, and a lot of women think that they need an extra degree or more experience under their belt before they actually get out there and run, and the truth is, they don’t. They’re entirely capable, but they are just understating their overall qualifications. GR: Allie, you were instrumental, I understand, as a student bringing the association’s Elect Her initiative to campus and having the event here. So tell me a little bit more about Elect Her, what it’s trying to do and how it goes about doing that. AC: Elect Her really does two things: encouraging younger women on campus to get involved and run for student government positions, so we can close that gender gap with women serving in executive roles. And then the other side of that is actually building a pipeline of women who want to get out and run for public office once they have graduated. So we had a lot of seniors who are ready to get out there and run, but the other side of that was encouraging our freshman and sophomore classes to start thinking about running for student government and realizing their own political leadership isn’t something that they need to do by getting another degree. We really want to do show them they can jump in and take ownership of the student government to the next level. GR: Was the actual event more about inspirational kinds of conversations or was it nuts and bolts? AC: We had both, which was great. We had (Syracuse) Mayor Stephanie Miner, and she was definitely more of the inspiration, and we had Tasha Cole, who was a trainer from Running Start, the organization that works with AAUW to bring Elect Her to college campuses. We had several women speak about their own experiences on student government. I was able to speak about campaigning and my time in office as president. GR: Did you have one particular “a-ha” moment that you took out of it that day? AC: I think the big a-ha moment came with Mayor Stephanie Miner and being able to hear her stories and what it’s like from her perspective as the first female mayor of Syracuse, and some of the things that she has had to deal with and how she has been a trailblazer. It was great to see her and take a little bit of inspiration from that.

Meet Copper! GR: Kathleen, do you have a sense of the program’s overall effectiveness? KG: Yes, we have some statistics. Eighty-eight percent of the 2013 participants who ran for student government president won. Twenty percent more students plan to run for student government and political office. And 100 percent of participants reported that they would recommend the program Elect Her to a friend. GR: Are there individual success stories from this program that stand out? AC: There were several women who were interested in running for vice president. One, in particular, had plans to run with a male running mate, who is running for president, and after the training she said forget about that, I’m running for president myself. She wants to run with a female running mate, as well. GR: Do you have a particular political role model that you want to pattern yourself after? AC: Yes, I am a huge fan of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.). I actually registered to vote in the state of New York just so I could vote for her. I think she has really been a champion of women’s

issues and has made that a forefront of her agenda, and that is something that a lot of women can aspire to be and support. GR: The Syracuse area seems very well represented by women in leadership roles: the mayor, the county executive, the presidents of the State University College at Oswego and Onondaga Community College, the superintendent of the Syracuse City School District and, up until recently, the chancellor of Syracuse University and the county health commissioner, among other positions. To what would you attribute that? Chance? What is going on here? KG: I would say the opportunities. We have other institutions that I think are friendly to women executives. I think there is a real opportunity here for women, and I also think that there is a great need. There is a great need in Central New York; Syracuse (provides) just the kind of challenge that I think a woman would not be afraid of taking on. GR: Allie, I want to push you a little bit on why you want to hold elective office. I know that a lot of people in your generation see the personal NEXT PAGE

nastiness, the general dysfunction of our political INTERVIEW system, and they conclude – you can’t really blame them, perhaps – they want little part in it. What are you seeing that makes you want to join in? AC: Well, I grew up outside of Washington, D.C., and then San Francisco, so I have lived in two very civically engaged areas in our country. I think I really picked up on something from both of those places about getting involved and being a leader with integrity. Somebody who could really make a stance and hopefully inspire people to do something good, and that is something that I have seen with my time at student government here at Syracuse University. So despite the negative stereotypes that come along with being in office and the general dysfunction that people tend to associate with political leadership, I’ve certainly hoped that the way that I operate as a leader can actually help with that. I think actually getting out there and putting the theories that I have learned in class into action – taking that to the next level – would be thrilling and very rewarding. … Having female role models who believe in you and say it’s OK, because politics is something that you can get knocked down and you can get bruised a lot in, and you just need someone there who’s cheering you on in your corner. I think that’s what really gets people to stay in the game. GR: Kathleen, do you have one particular piece of advice that you want to give to Allie as she’s stepping out into this nasty terrain of running for political office? KG: I would say to her, first of all, you will get tougher. Men get tougher, and women get tougher. And you will get tougher. And it’s a good thing to have a sense of humor, but you don’t have to use that all the time. Sometimes you can just say, cut it out. SNT

Global Partners, the company that runs a crude oil facility in Albany, announced April 30 it will no longer accept shipments of Bakken crude oil in DOT-111 tank cars, the kind that exploded and burned almost a year ago in Quebec in a disaster that killed 47 people. Beginning June 1, the company will require that all oil shipments arriving at its facility on the Hudson must be transported in tank cars known by the industry standard “CPC-1232.” But according to several rail safety experts, this is a distinction without meaning. Fred Millar, a well regarded independent rail safety expert based in Virginia, says the change is “not a significant improvement in safety.” The CPC-1232, according to federal officials, is a DOT-111 car that has undergone some upgrades that are not likely to the prevent tank punctures that could lead to fires and explosions. Karl Alexy is the staff director for the Federal Railroad Administration’s Hazardous Materials Division, which is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Asked if the shift to a CPC-1232 standard represents an improvement in public safety, Alexy responds hesitantly. “This is one of the most important questions that hasn’t been asked,” he said by phone from his office in Washington. “This is a touchy subject. CPC-1232 is an industry standard. It is a DOT-111 car that meets a more robust standard, but it is a voluntary industry standard. It’s a DOT111 that the industry has passed through a more robust level of scrutiny.” Alexy says that the difference includes the addition of a shield, which covers only the bottom half of the tank car, and the strengthening of the tanker car shell by 1/16th of an inch. The puncture velocity – the speed at which the tank could be ruptured by an accident – would not differ greatly between a DOT-111 and a CPC1232, according to Alexy. Alexy’s boss, DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx, remains “unconvinced” that the upgrade will ensure public safety.

things that we have control over,” she says. “We have control over environmental impact statements, which is in our comprehensive plan. I’m going to have a committee meeting, have people from the county and the city to talk about what this stuff is, and with what frequency it’s coming through our town.” Complaining that local communities and their first responders are “kept in the dark” with regard to the contents of each rail shipment, the resolution applauds the efforts of Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to bring attention to the issue and supports Schumer’s call for stronger standards for rail cars shipping crude oil and ethanol. “Time is of the essence for the federal government to address this important issue,” says the resolution, which also calls on railroads to notify the Syracuse Fire Department when dangerous shipments come through.


could this happen here?

“I don’t have confidence in the DOT111,” Foxx told Rachel Maddow on May 14. “And I’m unconvinced that the 1232 is the absolute solution.” Foxx said “there needs to be a new type of tank car” if volatile crude is to be shipped safely. Foxx and Maddow noted that the train cars that recently derailed, caught fire and spilled crude oil into the James River in Lynchburg, Va., were CPC-1232 cars. About 400,000 rail cars transport crude oil across the country, most of it to Pacific ports. CSX ships as many as 14 trains daily through Syracuse to the Global Partners facility in Albany. To replace all of those cars with safer tankers would take many years, according to Larry Mann, the principal author of the Rail Safety Act of 1970 and an industry consultant. Regulations call for phasing out DOT-111 cars ordered (not manufactured) after October 2011. At present there is an 18-month production backlog for tanker cars, which

means that DOT-111 cars manufactured as late as mid 2013 could still be used to ship Bakken oil.


On May 27, the Syracuse Common Council passed a resolution urging the federal government to take steps to protect Syracusans from the dangers of the flammable crude and ethanol being transported in DOT-111 cars. According to its primary sponsor, Councilor-at-Large Jean Kessner, the resolution, approved unanimously, is just a first step. Though the resolution is non-binding, Kessner plans to follow it up with meetings of the Neighborhood Preservation Committee that she chairs. Kessner acknowledged that only the federal government can regulate the railroads, but she believes the city has a role to play. “The Common Council can only do

Meanwhile, CSX, the railroad company that ships Bakken crude through Syracuse, has initiated a training program for local first responders. According to a CSX release issued April 24, the CXS “Safety Train” is a “rolling classroom” featuring “specialized hands-on training.” “This CSX Safety Train will begin in mid-May visiting numerous communities in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois,” says the company. “The company’s enhanced training program offers firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians and other first responders insights on how rail cars work and how to deal with rail incidents. This year, in light of increased crude oil movements on our network, we have expanded our engagement with first responders and emergency personnel along key routes to include training specific to crude oil movements.” The CSX Safety Train is comprised of a locomotive, four tank cars, one flat car equipped with tank car valves and fittings, two classroom cars and a caboose. CSX hazardous material specialists will lead training sessions with instruction on how crude oil is shipped. No word yet from the Syracuse Fire Department as to whether it will be participating. According to Minoa Fire Chief Erich Schepp, the Safety Train will be in Syracuse June 19-21. SNT | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14

ocated in the food court next to the carousel, Koto/Destiny was my destination on a weekday night with friends Ed and Merry. While a birthday party was enjoying the hibachi table, we settled into a regular table and set out to try some of the items that had recently been added to the menu. Well, actually, we tried just about all of them; what fun! In the beverage section, Koto is offering flights of Japanese beer or sake; three tastes each. We opened with the Mussel Moto Yaki, six mussels topped with a spicy aioli and accented with roe. The dish held just the right amount of complexity. Next were the Dinosaur Eggs, five fried oysters surrounded by a sweet chili sauce contrasted with a hot wasabi sauce. Speaking of sauces, catering manager Carmen Chan told us that sauce is what sets Koto apart from the other hibachi restaurants in our area, particularly the seafood and ginger sauces that are served with the hibachi meals. Three rolls have been added to the Destiny menu (the menu at the Erie Boulevard location is not identical). If you are not a fan of nori (the seaweed wrapping paper) you should check out the 10-piece Ichi roll: shrimp tempura, crab, white radish and lettuce wrapped in

soybean paper and topped with shrimp, avocado, scallions and a spicy mayo. Do not miss the Mohawk roll, as it was a huge hit with the three of us: peppered tuna, radish sprouts and cucumber topped with lobster salad and a spicy mayo. Merry had never tried a sushi roll before, but she took the adventure to heart, and it appears we created a convert. Dinner came with our choice of soup or salad, and we had to go with the salad and Koto’s homemade ginger dressing. This was a pink and creamy dressing with a subtle ginger taste and, according to Chan, Koto sells this dressing by the pint. The main dish categories included a fusion menu (some steaks and fish), teriyaki, tempura, rice and noodle selections along with the hibachi table option. New entrees included some Thai entrees. My seafood curry dish was spicy, and the Thai basil vegetable dish, a favorite of our server Jessi Cottrill, shined with fresh Thai basil flavor.


Although this is a tough call, on this visit I am going to have to go with the Mussels Moto Yaki. The presentation was beautiful, the sauce was luscious, and the dish as a whole was very different. Next time, I will try the Lobster Moto Yaki.


Stephanie Miner talks with reporter Walt Shepperd about accomplishments, focus and where Syracuse goes from here. | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14


Mayor Stephanie Miner’s inauguration on January 18, 2014. Photo by Michael J. Okoniewski for City of Syracuse


Shortly after returning to his City Hall office for a second, and last, stint, former Mayor Roy Bernardi reflected on being re-elected to a term limited post. “I can’t get anything done,” he said wistfully. “All the common councilors are launching their mayoral campaigns, and the developers are waiting to see who the next mayor will be, to see if they can get a better deal.” Stephanie Miner, 44, has a less cynical perspective. “I’ve always felt that there was a limited amount of time that you have to do the kind of work you do,” she says. “So it’s an incentive for me and my administration to accomplish as much as we can.” And to do it now. According to Miner, there is no thought to continue that work in some other elective or administrative position. Lovelier the second time around? Will Miner’s first-term experience make the second more comfortable, enable her to keep both feet on the ground, bring her to a miracle of urban solution? Homeboy Jimmy Van Heusen, who wrote the lyrics for “The Second Time Around,” doesn’t have the words for this one. “Around here, my anthem is Aretha Franklin’s ‘Think,’ ” she says. “Or maybe ‘Mustang Sally.’ ” Nor does she reflect on what will come after her time is finished. “I’ve got enough on my plate with what I’m doing right now for the next four years,” she says. If Miner could wave a magic wand, however, and achieve triumph in her three most daunting struggles, she lists, “a meaningful solution on 81, Say Yes to be fully funded and operational and to

06.04.14 - 06.11.14 |

have a meaningful infrastructure program funded for the city.”

Where would the money to wave the wand on the infrastructure come from? It would have to come from a combination of federal government and state government, because it’s just not an issue that is impacting the city of Syracuse, it’s impacting all municipalities across the country. And if you can’t deliver water or have safe roads or bridges, then you’re going to have a real problem as a society functioning.

Discussions of projects in Syracuse often focus on the property-tax base shrinking, because of exemptions. Should we be looking for other revenue sources? I think we need to worry about property tax. And we need to be very strategic when we think about what projects we want to exempt as a government and how we want to do that. For far too long, this community has just said any development is a good development, so let’s give them money. And that hasn’t worked. Over the past four years, instead of saying any development works, what we’ve said is downtown is important, it can be transformational, we need density, we’re going to incent development downtown. We’ve seen extraordinary results. The same with the Inner Harbor. Waterfront property can be transformational to cities, and it has been in many places, and that’s why we’re incenting development there. Neighborhood corridors are important to pedestrians, and so we have a project where we are working with small businesses in our neighborhood corridors. Those are three huge assets we have that we

believe can be transformational. There’s other development that is good development, but it’s not good enough for the entire public to waive property taxes.

A recent discussion about a stadium in Kennedy Square raised another question of property-tax exemption, but the discussion wasn’t brought to the city. In fact, one of the players said, “We don’t need the city on this.” Is that odd? Yes. And I don’t think that there was ever a fully developed plan. There was an idea, and there was some resources that people said they could put towards it. I hadn’t seen a map where the stadium would be. I hadn’t seen a map where parking would be, or who the developer was going to be, or who the operator or the occupants would be. It’s telling that there weren’t a lot of people involved in the process. We do development every day in this city, and we know that there’s a process. I live in a world where you have to do a study or a plan before you put a stop sign in a neighborhood.

What is the process for Interstate 81? I think the first question we have to ask ourselves as a community is, do we want to view Route 81 as just a road, or do we want to view it as an important asset to the people of this community, and that’s a very distinct question. I think we have to view it as the latter. And we have to view it as a way we make connections between neighborhoods and people, but we also have to understand that the way it currently stands has been a real disservice to the economic life of our community, the social life of our community, the cultural life of our community. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do the right thing, to harness the benefits economically, socially and culturally, of designing a road to maximize those benefits. But if we don’t, if we’re just going to think about how to get as many cars from point A to point B as quickly as possible, we will have done in incredible disservice to the community.

As mayor of Detroit, Dave Bing experienced economic disaster. Should we bring him in to help us figure out how to avoid, as you have noted, the possibility that the city could be broke in three years?

We’ve done that already. We have looked at the mistakes that Detroit has made and been very conscious about not making those mistakes. One example is there was an opportunity to borrow (related to pensions), and I refused to do that. Of the many mistakes Detroit made, one of the biggest was that they started borrowing for operating costs. That just made the hole bigger and bigger. I’ve committed to the people of this city and the community at large that we’re not going to be financially irresponsible, and we’re going to be very up front about what our challenges are, that we’re going to meet them in a way that we’re not just thinking about the next four years, but the next 10 years.

Will some of the means for meeting those challenges be very hard for people of the city to accept? Absolutely. We had to close the Ida Benderson Senior Center, very difficult. We had to close a fire station, very difficult. We have really shrunken our employee base as a city. That’s been very difficult. So the answer is yes. But at the same time, we have made tremendous progress. Again, see the NEXT PAGE | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14



development going on downtown. We have neighborhoods flourishing. We have Say Yes to Education. We have a land bank, one of the first in New York state that’s being seen as a model. We’re moving forward with looking at public safety, both in an enforcement and a prevention mechanism.

you have agreements and disagreements. The test of any relationship is how to move through the disagreements. We’ve had an extraordinary relationship for the past four years, and I think we will continue to have a good relationship for the next four. One disagreement does not tear asunder four years.

Is the public safety issue a product of the economic situation?

A relationship that hasn’t been so smooth is with the governor. Two professionals, certainly, but a lot of conflict?

Of course, that’s part of it. And it’s a product of a lot of society’s values. When you see the stories of the homicides, of both the victims and the aggressors, the criminals, it doesn’t take long to see all kinds of breakdowns and dysfunction along the way.

Looking at figures in budgets, numbers jump out for pensions and benefits. Are those increases a source of our financial crunch?

“I consider it a sacred responsibility to the people of the city to speak the truth as I see it and advocate as I see it. And let the chips fall where they may.”

No, when you look at the numbers, what you’re recognizing is that the economic model is broken. The economic model is broken when we are paying more in benefits for retirees than for active employees. … So I believe that our workers, both currently and past workers, deserve health care and deserve pensions. I believe that very deeply. I was a labor lawyer before I became mayor. But I also believe that we as a city have to be able to provide services. And we are getting close to the point where we’re going to have to decide, well, what do we do? Do we provide a service or do we pay our pension bills? If it were unique to Syracuse, then you could say it was Syracuse’s responsibility to solve the problem. But it’s not. What’s unique to Syracuse is that with our culture and our leadership here, we’re going to be very open and honest about the problems. We’re not going to sugarcoat them or lie about them.

Will making that decision impact our ability to attract excellent employees? I’m sure it could, but I have to tell you that I think that there are a lot of other things that can and should happen before we get there. I don’t think that the retirees should bear the burden of this problem. I don’t think taxpayers should bear the burden of this problem. I don’t think our current work force should bear the burden of this problem. I think that’s where leadership comes in. And that’s where the state and the federal government come in and recognize this and help us try to solve this.

After a first term of smooth relations with County Executive Joanie Mahoney, is the relationship becoming strained? No. We’re two professionals. In any relationship,

06.04.14 - 06.11.14 |

I feel very comfortable that I am doing my job to be an advocate for the people of the city of Syracuse. Sometimes when you do your job and you’re an advocate and you speak truth to power, it makes people unhappy. But I consider it a sacred responsibility to the people of the city to speak the truth as I see it and advocate as I see it. And let the chips fall where they may.

In cruder terms, does that piss the governor off and therefore put us at risk? No. I think you’ve seen the governor act in a way that he understands that the people of the city of Syracuse are New Yorkers, and he wants to see all New Yorkers flourish, whether it’s from the record money we’ve seen in the economic development council awards we’ve gotten, or coming out for the Inner Harbor groundbreaking. He seems to be very supportive of initiatives in Syracuse.

When your predecessor, Matt Driscoll, began his first term, he said he wanted to bring an NCAA basketball Final Four. They studied it and found there weren’t enough hotel rooms. Can we build enough hotels for that? You hear a lot of people talk about Final Fours when they talk about subsidizing hotels. But again, a public subsidy requires a lot more thoughtful analysis than just simply saying if we give millions of dollars we can get one event every five years.

What do you see as the long-range future of the Destiny development? I think you have to ask the Destiny developers that, not me. Our future as a city is much more diverse and intricate than simply a mall. And that’s another huge change in the outlook for this community. Part of the reason that the developer was able to get the unprecedented rich level of benefits was he said to people, ‘I’m going to bring you all of these things, and there’s nothing else going on in this community.’ I think you’re seeing now that he didn’t bring us all of those things, and there’s a lot going on in this community.

PEDAL PUSHER 06.04.14 - 06.11.14 |

Jessica Novak profiles the custom built creations of Jeremy Allen, who designs guitar effects pedals. Michael Davis photographs


Top Pedals (and what they do) he musician’s search for the right sound is a lifelong and tedious quest for players of any type of instrument. Among a long list of other equipment factors, pedal boards full of effects for distortion, delay and beyond work as tools toward a player’s aural destination. Pedal choices can feature all kinds of effects, with new and vintage options available. For those who want to keep it local, there’s an alternative: XXXPedals.

Jeremy Allen, 36, has been active in the Syracuse music scene since his teens, playing with groups including the Nasty Truth, the Methodist Bells and Hooker. The multi-instrumentalist has played everything from guitar to keys to sitar, even studying at the Ali Akbar College of Music in his 20s. But in 2012, after years of acquiring equipment in that search for sound, Allen started dissecting what he already had. He took apart and rebuilt the pedals he had collected (think Fuzz Face, Tube Screamer and Ross Compressor), and realized these doctored pedals had the sounds he was always looking for. “I was surprised how good they sounded,” he says. “They started replacing my pedals and I started making replicas of vintage pedals that would otherwise be $600 to $800. It’s easy enough to find the schematics and vintage parts.” Allen started constructing popular analog pedals, and gradually branched into custom jobs and more intricate models. Allen and Tom Ward contribute art to the pedals, giving them a distinctive look. Custom

artwork is also welcome: “I have a guy who has all pedals with pictures of his dogs on them,” Allen explains. Once the buzz picked up, Allen started distributing the pedals at local music stores such as Gorham Brothers Music and Guitar Outlet. He usually makes a batch of five to 10 at a time, right in his house in the Westcott Nation. Building time varies on how many he’s producing at once, but generally takes six to 10 hours. “I can, have and do anything,” he says. “Reverb, fuzz, ring modulators, distortion, boost, any basic analog effect, I can do.” Local musicians including Maurice Love (Methodist Bells) and Dan Musclow (Flashing Astonishers) are among Allen’s clientele. “I like working on custom effects for musicians,” Allen says, “because they sometimes come up with ideas I never would have thought of.” For more information, visit xxxpedals or email SNT

Boost: True to the name, these pedals give the musician an extra kick, often when switching from rhythm to lead and/or solo parts. Overdrive: Distortion can be warm or gritty depending on volume, providing mid-boosted tone. The Ibanez Tube Screamer (a favorite of Stevie Ray Vaughan) is one of the most popular of its kind. Distortion: While distortion, overdrive and fuzz terms are sometimes interchangeable; there are subtle differences between the three. Distortion provides a consistently pronounced effect at any volume. Fuzz: Also true to its name, expect a distinctly fuzzy, heavily distorted sound that may include frequency multiplier circuitry, which gives an extra harsh bump thanks to harmonics. Think of the Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”. Octave: These pedals affect the pitch, bringing tones an octave higher or lower. The Octavia may be the most popular of its breed, designed for Jimi Hendrix by his sound technician, Roger Mayer. | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14

Menopause: The Musical debuted in 2001 in Orlando, Fla. Since then, 11 million people have seen the show, according to the show’s official website.

Menopause’s Agents of Change


riginally put together by Jeanie Linders in Florida 15 years ago, Menopause: The Musical is always playing somewhere in North America. It was box-office gold for Syracuse Stage in 2006 and 2007.

Menopause is also that rare show where a performer can find nearly full-time employment for years. Fredena J. Williams, cast as the Professional Woman in this summer’s Finger Lakes Musical Theater Festival production (running through Aug. 9 at the Auburn Public Theater), points to 1,100 previous performances before she arrived in Auburn. All this mass experience guarantees that no one ever makes a fluff. Musical numbers, gags, dance routines and offstage noises (such as flushing toilets) are always perfectly timed. Yet that does not mean Menopause has become stale or shopworn, even though the musical accompaniment is prerecorded. In recent years the property has been wrested loose from the iron grip of creator Linders and now belongs to GFour Productions. Decision-makers in Auburn voted to run with Menopause, always surefire box office, when they were assured they could make their own adjustments to what has always been a pretty tight show. The Auburn mounting may look like all the other productions, with the four women appearing before the art deco restroom doors at Bloomingdale’s on Lexington Avenue, but it feels free and spontaneous.

06.04.14 - 06.11.14 |

The four women, all of a certain age, represent types rather than characters, in fashion sense, comedic tone and vocal style. Not one is the star, and each one has sustained time in the spotlight. The first to make a frenzied dash to the restroom is the blonde Iowa Housewife (Teri Adams). Outwardly naïve and repressed, she tends to talk more about “s-e-x” than the others and has her most hilarious moment trying to squeeze into a translucent teddy while not taking off her blue suit. Tall, massive Earth Mother (Becca McCoy) looks as though she might has been in a commune in the 1960s, the decade always cited in her dialogue, and still wears a peace sign lavaliere. She’s lived with the same man for 24 years without tying the knot. McCoy’s husky contralto lends itself to several musical genres. (At the end of June, McCoy will leave this production to be replaced by Graciela Valderrama.) About the “size of her right leg,” as Earth Mother puts it, is 90 pounds of blonde dynamite: Soap Star (Cherie Price), a TV actress who worries the serial world might soon be turning without her. In her big number, Soap Star turns the show’s spoofery on its head. She’s takes “I’m Having a Hot Flash,” based

on Irving Berlin’s “Heat Wave,” and delivers it as a torch song. All business and officiousness, Professional Woman (the aforementioned Fredena J. Williams) is an executive with soul. White performers have taken on this role, but it’s no coincidence that the bulk of her numbers parody music from black artists, especially Motown. Williams scores again and again with a kind of Pearl Bailey put-down humor, and her biggest moment is when she dons a Tina Turner wig for “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” The program, regrettably, does not come with a list of song titles, but every audience member past age 40 (and a good many under) will know every one of them, no matter what tricks Linders has done to the lyrics. The majority come from the 1960s and 1970s, such as the disco classic “Stayin’ Alive” getting changed to “Stayin’ Awake.” Compiler Linders came out of the industrial, sales and commercial show business, which Menopause clearly resembles. The musical is relentlessly upbeat, with the finale bringing a call for audience members to “Come on down,” just as they might for a company pledged to meet its annual sales goal. Such trade shows commonly build on taking familiar pop songs and altering the words to suit the occasion. Instead of the company’s name or leading executives, however, Linders has instead taken the anxiety and occasional humiliation of middle-aged change of life. When Edith Bunker spoke of menopause on All in the Family in the 1970s, family values vigilantes stormed TV producer Norman Lear’s office. Part of the delight in Menopause: The Musical is hearing people sing about subjects like nocturnal emissions that within the lifetime of audience members were once literally unspeakable. SNT

“Hudson Construction” by Marna Bell.

Triple Dipping at Edgewood Show


dgewood Gallery’s new retrospective presents pieces by three artists who work in different media: sculpture, photography and jewelry. Passages in Time respects the divergence in media but also finds commonality to link the artists.

Sculptor Jonathan Kirk, for example, has long made artworks drawing on the Industrial Revolution, machinery and the ocean. At Edgewood, he’s showing pieces like “Lookout,” a cast bronze with patina sculpture which suggests a submarine, and “In the Deep,” a non-figurative work which touches on an ocean’s sheer size and majesty. “Oh, Easy for Leonardo,” made with mild treated steel, combines several shapes, including a horn and wheel. It’s representative of other Kirk sculptures which have merged various objects. It should be noted that several pieces were made from coated cardboard or painted wood. These aren’t full-blown sculptures; they’re models for works too large in fit comfortably into a small gallery space. Yet they play a role in the exhibit by helping to demonstrate how Kirk works with abstraction and narrative, and does so effectively.

Photographer Marna Bell has more than 20 images on display, with photos selected from several bodies of work. One group was taken during Amtrak trips to Bell’s childhood home, Brooklyn. Because she shoots while the train is moving, the images come in various forms. A few are relatively straightforward, like the photo of a Harlem neighborhood seen as the train pulls into New York City. Another photo catches the countryside in passing, showing several trees in a blur. Some of the most interesting photos capture a moment in time and also communicate a theme beyond it. One image integrates a cloudy sky, a choppy river and a lone buoy buffeted by wind and water. The piece isn’t just about a stormy day on the Hudson; it generates energy and emotion, speaking to human turmoil and the will to overcome difficult situations.

Eight photos from Bell’s “Imperfect Memories” series also appear in the show. These images have a surrealistic flavor: We see people, but they appear faded and distorted. That distortion is deliberate, a technique for influencing viewers to consider what they remember and how they remember it. The third artist, Chris Irick, has brooches, earrings and other pieces on display. She has her own approach to figurative work, depicting turbines and dirigibles, the flying machines that gave way to airplanes. Irick also created “Migration,” a small piece portraying a flock of birds. Passages in Time continues through June 20 at the Edgewood Gallery, 216 Tecumseh Road. The venue is open Tuesdays through Fridays, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call 445-8111. SNT | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14

Survey shows importance of arts in CNY, points toward enhancements


xciting cultural activity is one of the major draws for people deciding whether to move into a new community. Artistic activity encourages creativity and innovation that in turn drive entrepreneurial energy, resulting in new jobs and retaining talent. Arts corridors and heritage sites in cities and rural hamlets across Central New York attract residents and visitors, giving rise to bustling main streets and the hospitality and tourism industries. So how can we collectively leverage our robust cultural landscape to invigorate the economy, encourage development and tourism and meet the needs of Central New Yorkers who may not have the access to cultural offerings that are relevant to their experiences? We at CNY Arts posed this question to help us begin developing a road map for the first regional cultural plan developed specifically for Central New York. Launched in June 2013, Engage CNY gathered input from more than 7,000 Central New Yorkers, hundreds of artists and more than 110 arts, culture and heritage organizations. From all walks of life, residents of six counties along with community leaders in education, government and businesses came together to help CNY Arts

work on a practical approach to improve, promote and grow the cultural resources in communities throughout our region. We asked the community last year to tell us what they think, and 7,222 Central New York residents responded through the Engage CNY cultural survey. We learned Central New Yorkers believe arts, creativity, and innovation are a high priority in regard to community and regional identity (90 percent), contribute to the economic vitality of the region (84 percent) and build tourism (88 percent). People in Central New York take part regularly in cultural and entertainment activities throughout the year — with almost three quarters of respondents reporting they paid to attend live performances during the past year and most (61 percent) responding that they attend four to nine events each year. We learned that a great majority enjoy concerts above all other kinds of arts and entertainment, and that theater, musicals, film, festivals and readings are also in

the top 10. And more than 70 percent of those surveyed believe that arts education is very important in their children’s inschool and after-school programming. More than 500 people joined us in a series of 52 focus groups, where we held conversations about cultural priorities and goals. We heard that people believe arts and culture create bridges between races and classes. We heard stories that some experience obstacles to creative opportunities, which participants said should be accessible regardless of income, race or geography. And we heard that many are not sure where to find information about what is being offered in the region. Finally, more than 120 community leaders met at a summit in February. The overarching goal was to create strategies to move forward with a comprehensive regional plan. Three priorities emerged: To increase awareness of Central New York’s cultural and creative assets; to better support the health of Central New York’s cultural and creative assets; and to increase cultural opportunity and participation. The regional cultural plan that has emerged is a comprehensive one that can be achieved in a decade. We have already started with the first steps. Conversations are taking place with artists, parents and schools. We are working to make it easier for residents and visitors to find the information they need to participate and become better aware of the cultural opportunities throughout the region. We are enhancing our social marketing system at, which provides a regional listing of events. We invite everyone in our community to look at the complete plan on the CNY Arts website at We encourage your feedback, as we see the new regional cultural plan as a living document — one that will continue to develop and remain relevant to the needs of our community as we move forward.

‘CHEF’ HAS INGREDIENTS TO KEEP AUDIENCE TALKING Why, hello, Jon Favreau. So nice to have you back where you belong. Make no mistake about it. Favreau is the brain, brawn and guts behind Chef, a tasty little film about a man who built a name for himself in the culinary world but then saw it slip away, first ever so slowly, one dish and relationship at a time, and then in one horrific, mind-blowing, soul-crushing run-in. Favreau made a name for himself as the writer and star of another little film, Swingers, which in 1996 showed the world his sweaty neuroses and buddy-building ability in the single land of Los Angeles. Of late, he’s executive produced mega films, namely the “Iron Man” franchise. With Chef, Favreau is back behind the wheel and in front of the camera as producer, director, writer and star. He’s surrounded by terrific help, in every sense of the word, to tell a story that’s gigantically pleasing because of many small, comforting moments. Carl Casper is a chef who toils halfway on autopilot in an LA restaurant owned by a satisfied-with-the-status-quo owner played with a sharp business edge by Dustin Hoffman. We discover Carl’s back story: a gee-whiz Miami chef lures his gorgeous and successful wife, played wonderfully toned-down by Sofia Vergara, and earns a huge Internet review by a critic played, with convincing smugness, by Oliver Platt. A decade later, though, he’s divorced from Inez, struggling to make his relationship work with their 10-year-old son, played quite terrifically by wise-eyed Emjay Anthony. And that Internet critic, Ramsay Michel, is planning to visit his restaurant, Riva’s. Carl is rallying his girlfriend/hostess, a laid back but devoted Scarlett Johannson, and his top two cooks, played loyally and full of quirks by John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale. They’re all stoked for Carl’s specials for the night. Riva marches into his kitchen and says, no way. Stick to what’s been putting the

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2002

It’s All Greek To Them


fannies in the chairs. Regular menu only. Carl dies a little. After the two-star review, complete with a personal attack, Twitter newbie Carl gets into a social media war with the Internet blog king. Another special menu is set up as a chef’s challenge. The owner nixes it. Carl goes off and is fired. Blogger, seated after the exact same meal as the first review, tweets another personal noogie. Carl barges back and becomes a social media one-tirade video star, jobless, job-offer-less and lower than low. Enter his ex-wife with an offer of a trip to Miami to watch their son while she’s on business — and a set-up interview with her rich first ex-husband — loopy Robert Downey Jr., who hands over a 30-year-old food truck. Leguizamo’s Martin flies in from LA immediately, helps Carl and 10-year-old Percy clean up “El Jefe,” and they set off on a road trip to share Cubano sandwiches and reclaim their cooking souls. Oh, how they shared the cultural and culinary riches of Miami, New Orleans and Austin in that spiffed-up truck. Percy works the social media world in ways that startle and thrill Carl, and Carl works that chef’s knife and truck kitchen in a manner that captivates Percy. The in-between moments seal the deal. When they pull back into LA, this woman who’s both an impressed mom and ex-wife awaits with open arms for the El Jefe truck and all that means. Writer Favreau has a couple more twists for Carl and crew, and the full downstairs little theater on a Friday night at Destiny USA was buzzing about “Chef” on the way out, like a dinner party crowd discussing the courses of a meal well done.

What do you yearn for more? A delicious Spanakopita, spinach in a pie, artfully delivered and just asking for a big bite? A delightful baklava, cinnamon-spiced nuts wrapped in a flaky phyllo pastry, positively tastebud-squirting? A sequel to My Big Fat Greek Wedding? You bet you’ll spy the first two when stars Nia Vardolas and John Corbett reunite for the second part of the story that warmed the hearts of America a dozen years ago. Variety reports that Vardalos will again write and star in the sequel, which will follow the Portokalos family as it gets together for yet another big, fat Greek wedding. Or, as Variety reporter Justin Kroll cleverly puts it, “a family secret is revealed and a bigger, fatter wedding brings the big fat Greek family back together again.” That’s music to a lot of ears. Everybody dance the Kalamatianos. Vardolas was good-natured about the making of a sequel in the Variety story. “Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” she said in Kroll’s piece. “Of course, a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true.” A story in Cinema Blend reminds us that in 2001 My Big Fat Greek Wedding was made for $5 million and earned $241 million in the United States and another $124 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy ever. Of course, the element of surprise is gone now. Hopefully her family can still make us laugh. | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14

hen Mike Marcus’s job was transferred from Florida to Syracuse, he and Will Chisolm left behind their suburban home. “We had the pool, the half-acre lawn, the house in the suburbs. I don’t miss anything,” Chisolm said. Instead of having a lawn that grew so fast in the Florida heat that it needed mowing twice a week, Chisolm and Marcus wanted to spend less time maintaining their home. And they weren’t interested in snow removal. “We wanted to not even have to buy a shovel,” Chisolm said. “It helps we have underground parking. We can take the elevator straight up to the courtyard.” They moved to Center Armory, a retail and condominium complex in the heart of Armory Square. For two years, they lived in a two-bedroom, 1½-bath, 1,200-square-foot apartment until their current home went on the market. Their current three bedroom, 2½-bath condo has 2,400 square feet of space. It’s the only double unit in Center Armory. The unit has floor-to-ceiling windows in the living, dining and bedrooms that face the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology. The asking price was $389,000. Marcus and Chisolm offered $325,000. To their surprise, the

06.04.14 - 06.11.14 |

offer was accepted. They kept the first condo, and rent it out. Center Armory was built in the mid-1990s, and the condo they bought a year and a half ago needed some cosmetic work. “It was kind of dated. We brought it up to date,” Chisolm said. They kept the kitchen cabinets, but added granite counters that match the tile backsplash. They added a marble counter and new sink in the master bath. They ripped out the carpets and put in dark oak floors throughout. They replaced the lighting fixtures. From the outside, the condo looks like two units. A second door opens into a rare space in a condo: A full laundry room with a utility sink. The first door opens into the kitchen with a dining room beyond. To the right is a living room with stairs to the third floor. At the top of the stairs is a loft seating area and three bedrooms. Barring another job transfer, Chisolm and Marcus plan to stay in Center Armory. “If we stay in Syracuse, we’re not leaving here. We have no desire to live anywhere else,” Chisolm said. SNT

Probiotics are foods or supplements containing “good” bacteria and yeasts meant to help digest food, protect against danTAKe gerous bacteria and build up the immune system. Some assert that a deficit of good bacteria can lead to irritable bowel syndrome, infectious diarrhea and ulcers.


By Cecil Adams

I’ve been hearing a lot about probiotics lately. I can see where the concept might be a good idea, but I have one question: After you’ve taken a probiotic supplement and established a colony of good bacteria in your intestinal tract, why do you have to keep taking it (other than to maintain someone’s boat payments)? Shouldn’t the colony you’ve established be selfsustaining? — Ken Sweetman


Fighting ignorance since

(It’s taking longer than we thought)


06.04.14 - 06.11.14 |

WHAT’S THE STORY ON PROBIOTICS? Not possible, my friend. At any rate, not easily. I’m afraid probiotics have been a bit oversold. Your digestive tract is a teeming zoo of more than 100 trillion bacteria cells representing hundreds of different species and in the aggregate weighing an average of seven pounds. A teaspoonful of probiotic supplement, if we may trust a random online promotion, contains 4 billion organisms. In other words, the bacteria in your gut outnumber those in the spoon 25,000 to 1. The chances are strong the newly introduced microbes won’t establish anything of importance, let alone a colony, during their transit down your alimentary canal. At best, they may provide some ephemeral benefit, although there’s no guarantee of even that. Scientists have long known the bacteria in a healthy digestive tract differed from those in someone who was ailing. A century ago, some proposed that rather than live with a gut full of bad bacteria, one might eat certain foods to modify one’s microbial demographics. Milk products, yogurt especially, provide probiotic benefits, but on the whole (the theory goes) our modern diet is deficient in helpful bacteria in part as a side effect of modern cleanliness: We encounter fewer bacteria of any kind due to pasteurization and other food processing, as well as drugs, additives and so on that suppress normal bacteria. There’s some truth to this. A round of antibiotics can kill off your intestinal flora, necessitating (at minimum) frequent trips to the loo. If this happens to you – and it happens to about a third of those so treated – there’s a roughly 40 percent chance probiotics will ease your distress. Likewise, someone whose bacteria reservoir has been reduced after having a section of their gut surgically removed may be advised to consume yogurt or probiotic supplements to help make up the deficit. But these are exceptional cases, and the evidence suggests it’s chiefly in the exceptional cases that probiotics may be of use, rather than as a preventive measure. One thing about gut bacteria: When their little lives are troubled, they let you know. Diarrhea is the least of it. Some examples of instances in which probiotics have proven helpful:

Illustration by Slug Signorino

— Pouchitis, an inflammation of the gut tissue in colostomy patients, responded well to probiotic treatment, with an 83 percent reduction in occurrence. — Probiotics significantly reduce the frequency of ulcerative colitis attacks. — Children susceptible to eczema saw significantly fewer outbreaks through age 4 when treated with probiotics. OK, eczema prevention is a non-obvious benefit of goosed-up gut bacteria. On the whole, however, evidence for the broader benefits of probiotic supplements is limited. For instance, a study of overweight adults who drank fermented milk containing probiotic bacteria found they lost both fat and weight relative to control subjects. But the study was small, with just 43 subjects. Even in some conditions where you’d figure they’d help the most — e.g., those directly involving the gut and the bacteria therein — probiotics provide little or no value. A meta-analysis of research involving 11 types of probiotic bacteria and eight gastrointestinal diseases (including the pouchitis success story mentioned above) professed to show probiotics improved both prevention and treatment by 42 percent. However, generalizing across a broad range of conditions, goals and therapeutic agents is inherently iffy. Examples of intestinal ailments where high hopes for probiotics have gone bust include necrotizing enterocolitis, sometimes seen in premature infants who lack protective bacteria; irritable bowel syndrome; and Crohn’s disease. That hasn’t stopped some from promoting probiotics as a Crohn’s cure. Claims that probiotics can help fight hypertension, HIV/AIDS, and cancer are likewise unsupported. Disappointed? You needn’t be. Let me tell you about extreme probiotics, more commonly known as fecal transplantation. It’s pretty much what it sounds like. Stop making eeeuwwww noises: Fecal transplants have been shown to be effective in treating Clostridium difficile disease (CDD), a complication of gut bacteria loss due to antibiotic use that as of 2007 was killing more than 14,000 Americans a year. So if you honest to God need to establish a self-sustaining colony of good bacteria in your gut — here’s a treatment that works.

TOP FIVE INTERNET MUSIC APPS With so many applications for mobile phones and computers these days, it’s easy to lose track of what’s out there, let alone which apps are best. Here are the top five Internet music apps:


Pandora Internet radio is by far the weakest in this list. Yet Pandora boasts more than 250 million general users, which crushes Spotify’s 40 million. Only about 3 million are paying members, though, while Spotify has more than 10 million paid subscribers. The reason: Pandora One, the paid version of Pandora, doesn’t offer very much compared to the free version. For $4.99 a month, users get no ads, more skips per day and fewer pauses. The price is one of the cheaper options available. Pandora features custom playlists that are intuitive and easy to use. Pandora excels in the user interface. The song library contains more than 1 million songs. What make Pandora one of the more attractive options, however, is compatibility. It is available on Apple mobile products, Windows phone, Blackberry, Android devices, Kindle Fire, Nook, Mac and PC and many more. Pandora even comes standard in some automobiles, such as Honda, Chevrolet and Toyota.

iHeartRadio’s 40 million users enjoy a free music experience with a catalog of more than 18 million songs and far fewer ads than the free version of Pandora. iHeartRadio also allows users to listen to radio stations locally and across the country, using the phone’s location service. iHeartRadio is readily available on devices including Apple products, Android devices, Windows devices, the Blackberry 10, streaming devices and some vehicles. The user interface is very easy to use and has a small learning curve.


Rhapsody allows users to pay per month ($9.99) to download songs that are available when the user is offline. Rhapsody has the largest library, more than 32 million songs, which is updated every Tuesday with new music. The user interface on Rhapsody’s mobile app is well put together, but it is more involved than its competitors’ and requires a bit of learning due to its extra features. There is no free version of this application. Compatibility is average compared to its competitors. The only vehicles with which it can sync without cables are Fords.

2Beats Music

The allure of this application cannot be denied. It is absolutely beautiful. The user interface is intuitive and fun to use, showcasing a modern design to match the Beats by Dre brand. moodboard | Getty Images

The features are fresh and take a fun spin on finding new music. “The sentence” is an exclusive feature, playing music to suit the user’s mood by creating a sentence comprised of four categories. Another feature: profiles of famous musicians with a bio of the artist, latest releases, top songs, the ability to follow them and a “beats playlist” of their best work. The profiles are organized by Beats Music moderators and not the musicians. Beats Music consists of more than 20 million songs, which is updated every Tuesday, with more than 30 genres to select from in the “find it” option. The cost after the 14-day free trial is $9.99 a month and is free for the first 30 days. Compatibility is its downfall, as it has a limited selection of devices: Apple products from the past few years (i.e. iPad third generation, iPhone 4, etc.), Android devices running OS 4.03 or higher, Windows Phone 8 or higher, Sonos wireless speakers, and the latest versions of Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.  


Spotify is the best Internet music app because you can stream music without a monthly fee after the free trial is complete. Like Beats Music, Spotify offers a premium version for $9.99 a month, which gives users the ability to download an unlimited amount of music for offline listening. In addition to this, there is a $4.99 option available to desktop computers without being able to download the music for offline listening. Spotify features a 20 million song catalog, which is updated every Tuesday. Compatibility isn’t Spotify’s strong suit. It is available on Mac and Windows computers, Apple mobile products, Android devices, Windows Phone 8 and Blackberry devices. The user interface is just as good as, if not better than, Beats Music. There is a learning curve, but it isn’t a make-or-break feature. Uncovering new music is very easy with the “Discover” tab, which shows what music is trending in the user’s area and what is popular in general. The “Browse” tab features a “Genre and Moods” category that is broken into subcategories so the user can listen to the type of music she or he is in the mood for at that moment, similar to Beats Music’s “The Sentence.” SNT | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14

cation. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. Toll free numbers may or may not reach Canada.

 ARIES (March 21-April 19) “We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires and comets inside us,”

writes novelist Robert R. McCammon. “We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible.” That’s the bad news, Aries. But now here’s the good news: The next 12 months will offer you a series of excellent opportunities to re-magic yourself. If you have not yet caught wind of the first invitation, I bet you will soon.

 LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) My favorite bridge in the world is the Golden Gate Bridge. In the hundreds of times I have driven on it over San Francisco Bay, it has never let me down. I’ve always gotten from one side to the other without any problem. In addition to its reliability, it uplifts me with its grandeur and beauty. What’s your most beloved bridge, Libra? I suggest that in the coming weeks you make it your lucky charm, your magical symbol. Why? Because the next chapter of your life story requires you to make a major crossing. You will traverse a great divide. Having your favorite bridge as a shining beacon in your imagination will inspire your strength and courage as you travel.  SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) U2’s Bono has called Leonard

 TAURUS (April 20-May 20) “When given a choice between owning an object and having an experience,” says art critic Holland Cotter, “I always choose the experience.” He prefers to spend his money on adventures that transform his sense of self and his understanding of the world. I recommend that approach to you in the coming weeks, Taurus. The most valuable “possessions” you can acquire will be the lessons you learn, the skills you hone, and the relationships you ripen. emin

 CANCER (June 21-July 22) “Little horses cannot carry great riders.” So says a Haitian

proverb. Now, in accordance with the astrological omens, I’m urging you to meditate on its meaning for your life. Here are four possible interpretations: 1. Are you a “little horse” trying to carry a “great rider” who’s too much for you? 2. Are you a little horse that could grow into a bigger, stronger horse worthy of a great rider? 3. Are you a “great rider” who is in need of a horse that is big and strong enough to serve your big, strong ambitions? 4. Would you like to be a “great rider,” but you can’t be one as long as you have a horse that is too small and weak?

 LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Declare victory, Leo. Even if victory is not quite won yet. Even if your

success is imperfect and still a bit messy around the edges. Raise your arms up in elated triumph and shout, “I am the purified champion! I am the righteous conqueror! I have outsmarted my adversaries and outmaneuvered my obstacles, and now I am ready to claim my rightful rewards!” Do this even if you’re not 100-percent confident, even if there is still some scraping or clawing ahead of you. Celebrate your growing mastery. Congratulate yourself for how far you’ve come. In this way, you will summon what’s needed to complete your mission and achieve final, total victory.

 VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Give special attention to what will last the longest. That’s my main

recommendation for you in the coming weeks. Devote less of your energy to transitory pleasures and short-term hopes. Turn away from the small obsessions that demand far too much of your energy. Withdraw from the seemingly pressing concerns that will soon start to fade because they really aren’t that important. Instead, Virgo, devote your love and intelligence to the joys and dilemmas that will animate your life well into the future. Express reverence and care for the mysteries that will teach you and teach you and teach you for years to come.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

In Marcel Proust’s novel Swann’s Way, the narrator speaks of how profoundly he is inspired by an older writer named Bergotte: “Each time he talked about something whose beauty had until then been hidden from me, about pine forests, about hail, about Notre-Dame Cathedral . . . with one image he would make that beauty explode into me.” I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because in the coming days I suspect a great deal of beauty will explode into you. Why? I think it’s because you’re more receptive than usual to being delighted and enchanted. The triggers could be anything: exciting people, eavesdropped conversations, good books, surprising music, and who knows what else?

Cohen’s song “Hallelujah” “the most perfect song in the world.” It is mournful and triumphant, despairing and uplifting. It’s a riddle that improbably offers cathartic release. More than 300 recording artists have done cover versions of it, and it has even been the subject of books. And yet it was a challenge for Cohen to compose. He wrote more than 80 verses before choosing the few he would actually include in the final version, and in one famous session he resorted to banging his head on the floor to stimulate his creative flow. “To find that urgent song,” he said, took “a lot of work and a lot of sweat.” I nominate “Hallelujah” to be one of your sacred symbols for the next 12 months, Scorpio. From your strenuous effort, I predict, will come masterful creations.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Let me outline the breakthroughs I hope to see for you in the coming months. First, what is pretty good about you will not interfere with what is potentially great about you, but will instead cooperate with it and boost it. Second, your past accomplishments won’t hold back your progress; you will not be tempted to rely on them at the expense of your future accomplishments. And third, the brave ideas that have motivated you so well won’t devolve into staid old dogmas; you will either renew and reinvigorate them or else move on to a new set of brave ideas.

 CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you are in even moderate alignment with cosmic rhythms during the next 12 months, you will be a connoisseur and master of recycling. I’m speaking metaphorically here. What I hope is that you will reanimate worn-out inspirations and convert faded dreams into shiny new fantasies. You will find ways to revive alliances that went off-track. A oncevibrant shtick or trick that lost its cool could be retrieved from the ash heap of history and turned into a fresh, hot asset. Gear yourself up for some entertaining resurrections.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) I wish I could tell you that your power animal this month is the eagle or dolphin or panther. Having a glamorous creature like that as your ally might boost your confidence and charisma. To be paired with one of them might even activate dormant reserves of your animal intelligence. But I can’t in good conscience authorize such an honor. That’s not what the astrological omens are suggesting. In fact, your power animal this June is the bunny rabbit. Please understand that there is no shame in this. On the contrary. You should be charmed and appreciative. It signifies that you will be fertile, fast, a bit tricky, and very cute. (To read an essay on the mythology of the rabbit as trickster, go here:  PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) The Buddhist meditation teacher Chogyam Trungpa said that one of the best ways to become fearless is to cultivate tenderness. As you expand your heart’s capacity to feel compassionate affection for the world, you have less and less to be afraid of. That’s the opposite of the conventional wisdom, which says you become brave by toughening up, by reinforcing your psychic armor. Of all the signs of the zodiac, you Pisceans are best set up to benefit from Trungpa’s method — now even more than usual. r Homework: What other sign would you want to be if you could take a vacation from your actual sign?

The Capitol Pressroom is a daily one-hour radio program broadcast from the Legislative Correspondents Association Pressroom in TAKe the State Capitol. It features interviews with important newsmakers and analysis from reporters who work the Albany beat.


By Renée K. Gadoua

Why radio? When I was in college, I worked at WTBU, which was a one-watt radio station in one of the dorms at Boston University. I just fell in love with radio. How has radio changed since your college days? Radio has become a much smaller part of the communications pie. However, you’re always going to need that local radio station. You’ve got your news, you’ve got your weather, and you’ve got your traffic. People need that when they’re in the car. For people who also have an appetite for public affairs, you also want to know what’s going on in your local and state government. I really feel that I have a mission to educate people about what state government is doing to them – because it is doing it to them. You don’t pay attention at your own peril.


I just think that’s who I am. I get to choose the guests on my radio show that will have sort of an imprint of who I am and these are the issues that are important to me. I think I have an obligation to make sure that groups that are not heard from are heard on the air. Who was your most difficult guest? Has anybody ever walked off during a show? Nobody has ever walked off. There have been some contentious things. One time when David Paterson was governor, I had just started this show and I was nervous and I wanted to show people I could do it. I was really jabbing him with tough questions, and he’s like, “You’ve really got to lay off the coffee, Susan.” If somebody is really difficult to interview, it’s because I haven’t done my homework.

What’s the allure of radio?

Who do you want most to interview?

It’s much more intimate. You get much more personal than on TV. You don’t get more intimate than this. I met my husband because I was on the radio. He listened to me throughout one summer years ago and felt that knew me. He felt he knew me so well that he asked me out without having met me in person. People think they know me, and I love that.

I’d like to interview Gov. (Andrew) Cuomo in person. When you’re face to face, you build a rapport. I’d like to sit down with George Pataki and ask what it’s like 20 years later. Hillary Clinton, that’s who I would love to interview.

How do you prepare for a show? Susan Arbetter has been the host of The Capitol Pressroom since 2009. The daily, hour-long radio program is usually broadcast from Albany; occasionally, it’s done at WCNY studios in Syracuse. The show streams live 11 a.m. to noon daily on www.wcny. org/radio. It’s also broadcast on 8 p.m. on WRVO-FM (89.9).

Do you see yourself as an alternative to mainstream shows?

We’re right in the Capitol, so I have my pick of great guests. What I try to do is bring people an impression of what’s happening in the Capitol that day. During the legislative session, I’m going to have way more politicians on than I usually do. I have the time to let people explain issues that other people don’t touch. I feel that race is just not talked about enough in this country. I want this show to be a safe space for people to talk about issues that are hard to talk about elsewhere. … These are things you are not going to hear on WSYR.

What would you ask her? Why do you want to put up with the garbage you’re going to have to put up with to run? Is it different now than it as in 1996, when you tried to do health care, and how is it different? Do you think you can get anything done in Congress that is just completely immovable? What can be achieved in America, because we’re so divided? SNT | 06.04.14 - 06.11.14

ights are tricky things. They’re easiest to defend when they least need defending; they most need defending when doing so is unpopular and, often, distasteful.

It’s easy to defend freedom of speech … until Nazis march in Skokie, Ill., or protesters burn the flag. It’s easy to defend religious freedom for Catholics and Protestants … but some forget the right when the religion is Islam and the question is whether to build a mosque in Tennessee. Freedom of the press sounds fine … until that free press publishes secret government documents, or pornography. But if Americans don’t defend their rights even when exercised by those with whom they disagree, under circumstances they find distasteful, those rights will be lost. Which brings us to this week’s Sanity Fair by Ed Griffin-Nolan. He writes about a vote in the House to rein in the National Security Agency and its data collection activities. About time. Remember the days after Sept. 11, 2001? Fear that the attacks were only the first assault by terrorists. Disbelief that the attacks were so effective, and so easy to plan and execute. Everyone said we must make sure it never happens again.

And so some chose to curtail rights in the pursuit of security. Once, Americans didn’t accept torture. Americans didn’t hold prisoners without due process. The government couldn’t spy on citizens without due process and judicial review. When those things changed, they were bargains with the devil and, at their foundation, un-American. The national security apparatus should work tirelessly against the forces that would harm Americans within the bounds of U.S. law and rights. Law enforcement must use all the tools at its disposal to thwart threats to our people within the bounds of U.S. law and rights. For where is the victory if our enemies can drive Amercians to abandon their most cherished values? The House bill was sponsored by Rep. James Sensenbrunner (R-Wis.), one of the champions of the Patriot Act, which empowered the government to do things it shouldn’t. He concluded it had gone too far. The new House bill is a step in the right direction. SNT

I’m no Democratic stalwart—I’m extremely disappointed in the Democratic Party and don’t feel particularly well represented in Washington as a progressive. However: One would have to be blind or willfully lying to deny that Maffei has done more for CNY’s working families in one year than Ann Marie Buerkle did in three. He has also been a staunch defender of our privacy rights, bucking the administration in its efforts to conduct dragnet surveillance on all Americans. He may not be perfect, but I’d rather see him continue in office than put another Republican in there to ignore CNY’s working families while waging a war on women, minorities and the environment, and serving the interests of the 1% and the corporate welfare state. — Daniel Sieradski
