I like the fact that we want to honor the history of certain thing's that happen in our state's past and present, but 3.1 million dollars on an old ship in today,s economy is a complete waste of money. You can compare this to the AIG bonus scandal. Why spend the money of this when you can spend it on something worth while. Taking the money to the casino would be more beneficial.

Why not welcome it?
Its a grant, if we don't get it someone else will.

Why just think. This will cause hundreds of organizations to schedule their next convention at the Erie Convention Center.

It's called the NEW YORK STATE BARGE CANAL. By all means, please look it up. Apparently your fifth grade geography has failed you, sir.
