Re: “The church inside the Catholic Church

Where in the New Testament does it say that a marriage can be between 2 women or 2 men? Who am I to judge gay people when we all fall short and we are all sinners. Just because we sin doesn't mean that we should celebrate or agree with that sin.

Re: “Ginna's future in jeopardy

Good article! Deregulation precipitated this problem because the private sector has no responsibility to look forward and set aside the necessary resources to ensure safe and reliable electric service. Pre-deregulation, that was a large part of the PSC's responsibility. They had 8 entities to oversee, now there are many more. There are only 7 local distribution companies who we pay that the PSC can affect. NY hydro units are limited due to supply and there aren't enough economical options for more. The well to do have eliminated a wind option in Lake Ontario and other locations. It is true Ginna's value can never go to $0 so long as there is no countrywide long term waste repository. A very thorny problem where none of the players will be satisfied with the solution.

Re: “Ginna's future in jeopardy

Any discussion about the viability of a nuclear energy power plant must include an assessment of its unpaid future costs for disposing and safekeeping of spent fuel rods over the life of the plant. That liability alone will ensure jobs well into the future. Ginna is no exception.

Re: “Ginna's future in jeopardy

This was a very informative article about the issues we have to face with regard to Ginna in particular. Utility companies, regulators, and the general public must seek a balance between obtaining low prices, energy security, and the need for a diversified supply base for both economic and supply reasons. One issue not really addressed in the article is the environmental impact if Ginna shuts down and the replacement electricity is supplied from fossil fuel sourced plants. Even natural gas has some emissions, although they are much lower than coal fired plants. Conservation efforts and solar/hydro sources might help in the long term, but I do not think they would contribute in the short term.

Re: “Ginna's future in jeopardy

NYC already has influenced our state enough; when does this influence end for the remainder of the state?

Re: “The church inside the Catholic Church

This woman is not a Catholic, by any means. Ignoring the teachings of the church, or saying that the church must change doctrine to reflect the views of the secular society makes her a Protestant. Maybe not by declaration, but certainly by her actions.

Re: “Taming East Rochester's main drag

There were actually three planning firms that worked on the plan: SRF and Associates, Ingalls Planning & Design, and Steinmetz Planning Group.
