The residents of Utica NY got dissed big time on Saturday Night Live News last night.

They had a parody of Gov Patterson who challenged Andrew Cuomo to go to upstate to Utica NY and face the animals in their cages throwing rocks. This was shown all across the country. What a great reputation we have.

I'll tell you what, after reading the article of the cop who beat a handcuffed man, and the Utica city government fiasco over the James Street fire, I think their portrayal of Utica is pretty much spot on. Utica is an embarrassment.

They are right. This place is just a big ghetto full of lowlife people of all races. The funny thing is that each group thinks they are better. Like a animal in a zoo that thinks they have the most freedom.

The sad part is our "reputation" for having so many criminals and hoodlums living in our City, it exactly why our politicans can NOT bring any worthwhile businesses to our area.

If you owned a reputable business and needed higher class employees, would you move to Utica? We all know the answer to that one - NO!

Until our Police Dept. and Judges start taking a harder approach to throwing these low live hoodlums into jail for longer sentences and start making more drug arrests and cleaning up our City, Utica will continue to get worst and worst.

Why the hostility amigo? Both are spot on and just as funny! They will be mentioning utica regularly its a recurring joke they will be using. Just laugh its funny! Utica = red head stepchild of NY. Always has been always will be. Shocking to outsiders when we look at the news-officials-natives. Enjoy the free publicity!

LOL

They're just getting even for the Tea Party here. That was mild considering how they portrayed Gov. Paterson.

True, but so is Gov Patterson. The fact that he has less than a 20% approval rating yet insists he is acting in the best interests of New Yorkers along with the fact that the state is worse off than its been in years and bla bla bla
That's because all of you stupid uninformed uneducated morons think that he's been in office long enough to cause all of the state's problems. Just like all of you think Obama created the country's problems.

You're all stupid.

I keep sending the producers links to Topix pages. They laugh like hell and when a really good one happens, makes good fodder for another show. Uticans fighting Uticans, better sport than MMA. Is it any wonder that businesses are going broke here and no HR manager in his right mind would ever relocate a large business here unless he wanted to tap the low rent, uneducated, low wage ruffians in CNY ?

Uneducated? We have Utica College, Colgate, Hamilton, SUNY IT colleges here with graduates ready to work.

I don't blame Gov. Paterson nor Obama for the state of New York or country's economic woes (not that they're improving anything, though), that honor goes to Pelosi, Barney Frank, Acorn, Reid and friends.

Colgate, Hamilton? How far out does the Utica ignorance radius extend?
You have UC and IT.

Do you think its just bad luck that Utica is the laughing stock of any other part of the US thats heard of us?

I think you're paranoid.

The only people making Utica look bad are its bad-mouthing residents like you, throwing stones at yourselves:

SNL used to be funny many years ago when is was "cutting edge" humor. It's dead now, and should be buried. It's useful life has long passed and it's really starting to smell bad...just like the "blue state" doper children.
