The mere fact that Governor Paterson has this Cretan on a short list, or any list for that matter, goes to show any casual observer, that our elected officials really are clueless. They are so devoted and beholden to the special interests that line their pockets, all of them regardless of party affiliation, that they cannot not come up with practical solutions to this problem, or the many problems their greed have saddled us with, for that matter. We just keep voting in the same party hacks, time after time. If there ever was a reason for term limits across the board, I donít know what is. This will not change until we as voters make it change, but they just laugh; in two days this will be all forgotten and Kessel will be in a position where he can set this island, and State back another generation.

Don't kid yourself.

Including the FPL overruns and payoffs to Pataki contributor/cronies $300 oil would still be cheaper.

Tough choice:

- Richie Rotund as State Power Auth
- Richie Rotund as County Executive

I vote "None of the above".
