Since the inmates are already running the asylum, why would we take a chance on worse? Think about the state being run by bloggers who are only the voice of themselves! The next election will be lots of fun with 'squeaky clean' people trying to unseat the current offenders.

Form two separate New York's?

Like "North New York" and "South New York?"

Or just plain "Red" and "Blue" New York?

Or how about a return to the old Blue-Gray tit for tat?

We get to keep our guns and cows and Sen. Darrel; and, they get to keep the Bronx and Manhattan, the Yankees, and subways?

Now, about Staten Island: um...
- sorry folks, you will have to fend for yourselves ... but maybe you could become like Puerto Rico and then you could produce your own two Senators like Rubén Diaz or Pedro Espada, Jr.?

I took my tongue out of my cheek; I'm done now.

Nope, I say continue the way it is. Then, when we retire. We can leave the state and tell all the kids that are too stupid (or connected) to leave where to send the checks.

Isn't that the way we've been doing it for a generation now?

Vote donkey. For just a couple more years. Please.

We get to keep our guns and cows and Sen. Darrel; I would just as soon give them darrel if they want him. He's one of them now.
