Re: “UR has new sex misconduct policy

I'm absolutely astonished about "nice try"'s post staying up. Usually that would be censored so fast it would make your head spin.

Re: “Sun gods: Why solar power isn't just for hippies anymore.

Government subsidies for everything under the sun are getting on my last nerve! Who's going to pay to repair our crumbling infrastructure and especially the unsafe bridges? I suspect that to a large measure it will be the rest of us poorer folks who still have to drive a gas guzzler.

Re: “UR has new sex misconduct policy

I'm surprised that City allows a profanity-laden posting like the one by "nice try but not good enough" be published (and stay published). Are there no standards of reasonably decent (or at least non-profane) language in posts?

Re: “DINING REVIEW: Sultan Lebanese Cuisine & Bakery

I don't know if there was an editorial change, or if it's just a function of me having read a larger number of City's reviews, but things seem much more honest and less "always glowing no matter what" lately. I dig that. Reading restaurant reviews that actually mention the ups and downs of a place are much more useful.

Re: “Sun gods: Why solar power isn't just for hippies anymore.

Contrary to popular belief, solar energy can be an inexpensive and highly efficient energy source. More incentives and policies that expand the solar market are needed to make solar more available to consumers. By going solar not only are you benefiting the environment and supporting cleaner energy but you’re saving money and decreasing the demand for conventional energy. The cost of going solar has fallen over 60% and middle-class Americans have led the way in the surge of residential solar panel installations. See how solar could benefit you by checking out your property’s solar potential. -http://bit.ly/1gKEjv0

Re: “Sun gods: Why solar power isn't just for hippies anymore.

Personally for me the line that encapsulates the complete thought behind this article is "One of solar's big selling points is payback." Let's start looking at solar beyond just the green tag and directly from the financial-economic perspective. That's how you get people's serious attention. The drop in costs allows us to be bullish on solar proclamation of cheaper than grid power.
Of course not to forget the underlying benefits for example solar power's impact on rural exodus discussed here http://www.sunipod.com/blog/solar-powers-impact-on-rural-exodus/

Re: “Warren says she'll accept whatever happens with mayoral control

If The City of Rochester School District, and the Brighton School District were joined educationally, you would see a mass exodus from Brighton.

The people of Brighton don't want their children learning the rules of the ghetto.

They want their children to be educationally superior.

Just the facts ...

Re: “The 'war on coal' and the war on the planet

Great editorial, but the solar energy article in this issue has a great example of just why we find ourselves in a "thick smog of catchy phrases and deceitful ads." -- "Some critics characterize [solar power] as an expensive, noncompetitive energy source that is overly dependent on government subsidies; supporters vehemently disagree." Yeah? So which is it? While there is some subjective component to this debate, there is certainly data available to demonstrate the truthiness of each of these views. If the reporter has no bandwidth to investigate such opinions, then they should not be included in the article at all. As it stands today, people can just utter the most ridiculous opinions and get them disseminated through a media overly-concerned with presenting so-called "balance"., and unwilling or unable to fact-check.

Re: “The 'war on coal' and the war on the planet

Awesome reality-based, local editorial on ‘War on Coal’ by local editor that bars no holds on speaking up courageously for our life support system. And if we had more editors saying this, our American public wouldn’t be so “stupefyingly good at denying reality”:

“Americans have grown stupefyingly good at denying reality, no matter how strong the scientific and medical evidence. And special interests have become experts at obscuring the evidence with a thick smog of catchy phrases and deceitful ads.”

Re: “Sun gods: Why solar power isn't just for hippies anymore.

Imagine what New York State would look like now if six years ago we dropped Fracking altogether and went full throttle on solar power and ditched a “noncompetitive energy source that is overly dependent on government subsidies” called fossil fuel subsides, which get billions from our government each year.

Re: “The 'war on coal' and the war on the planet

A major reason we still rely on coal for so much power production is that environmentalist fanaticism and fear-mongering stifled this country's adoption of clean nuclear power. Similar fanaticism now threatens the development of clean natural gas. And of course if the same fanatics had had their way, we would not have seen the agricultural revolution of recent decades, and billions would be dead of starvation.

We need to develop both nuclear power as well as the abundant natural energy resources with which we are so blessed. The absolute priority must be to reach a level of global economic expansion that will rapidly raise living standards not only for Americans but for the billions still impoverished around the world.

And yes, we urgently need to replace our incompetent, growth-killing political leadership.

Love the "old time" kiddie rides that you don't see anyplace else!!! My grandkids love them because they have never been on them anyplace else. Hope you didn't replace them.

Re: “UR has new sex misconduct policy

A bona fide policy on "sexual misconduct" can be stated quite succinctly: Ladies and gentlemen do not commit fornication or adultery.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I live in New Jersey and came here with a good friend last year. I'm happy to say it is one my favorite parks, between the rides, the atmosphere, the emplyoees, and the wonderful history. I love these little family owned parks and I cannot wait for my next visit.
