Because unions worked out so well for Detroit!
(*steps on soapbox*) Even though I like the story part and appreciate the efforts to draw attention to mental health issues, I feel like there should be a third part of this series talking about the sheer LACK of resources in Rochester. Putting a list at the bottom doesn't really help. Once someone finally works up the courage to reach out for help, they don't want to be given the runaround. Most of the places listed have a several month waiting list. Most independent psychologists in this area also have waiting lists, and forget even trying to find a psychiatrist for medication management. Everyone I talked to told me to go through my PCP because of the lack of psychiatrists in this area. Also, having to wait several months to see someone can be the difference between someone starting to get better and slitting their wrists. They also don't mention eating disorders and related resources anywhere. Considering ED's are mental disorders and it's NEDA Week, it seems poor form not to call that out somewhere.

When my beloved Fujiya closed I was heart broken, but was thrille dto find out that their sushi is still offered at their market down the street: Bento-Ya. Definite staple in our house.
We also revisited the Plum House after a multi year hiatus (moved from Park Ave neighborhood to Webster) and we were really, REALLY pleased with their rolls.
We are huge sushi lovers and you did not list our favorite place, Plum House! Their sushi is excellent and they now offer Ramen which is delicious. This list is great though and gives us some new options to try, as Plum House and Shiki are our go-to places! :)

What a backstabbing phony. If teachers think that their unions are not part of the APPR/ common core/ charter school boom power hungry crooks - you are sadly mistaken. She was on board with this APPR nonsense- the bill gates (take over the world) foundation gave the ATF MILLIONS of cash. Why would the union make deals with the devil? Throwing rocks (boulders) and then hiding your hand. She wants teachers to believe her rhetorical lies. The whole system is a sham. Making it worse by taking dues from hard working teachers. Ms weingarten I'm not buying what you're selling. Dear.
Not Visited Yet: Thanks for the comment. It appears that the restaurant has changed the approach to that dish, because the fritters we sampled and shot for this article -- which are photographed at the top -- did indeed include sauerkraut (I personally tried one and recalled that flavor distinctly). But you are right; the website now lists the dish differently and at a different price.
“We need a highly progressive tax structure that strongly disincentivizes excessive pay and unreasonable hoarding of wealth, in which the gains are used to ensure a thriving commons.”
What we have in New York is a highly progressive tax structure that ‘disincentivizes’ and punishes success, and forces people to try and protect their wealth from unreasonable confiscation by the state. Look at what happened under NY Governor Paterson after he imposed his tax on “the rich”. Those who were targeted simply left the state; Tom Golisano being the most well-known example. It would have cost Golisano $14,000 a day to remain a resident of NY under Paterson’s tax. “The rich” create jobs. They are also more mobile than the average taxpayer so they can simply up and leave (and take their money with them) when socialists target them. It will be interesting to see what happens if NY mayor De Blasio gets to impose his tax on “the rich”.
NY is the highest-taxed and most business-unfriendly state in America. People are leaving (escaping) in droves and Cuomo understands why. Actually Cuomo is a heretic in the liberal socialist Democrat party. He has stated that lowering taxes helps businesses, which is good for the state. Cuomo proposes to lower property taxes (again, NY is the leader in property taxes in the US) which is good for the struggling NY taxpayer. Cuomo also has indicated he does not approve of De Blasio’s plan to tax “the rich” in NYC. All this is still just talk by Cuomo, but he is by no means a fiscal conservative in my opinion.
You talk about “excessive pay and unreasonable hoarding of wealth”. Who gets to define ‘excessive’ and ‘unreasonable hoarding’. You? De Blasio? Even more to the point, where in the Constitution does is say that our government, or anyone else, has the right or the power to decide what anyone else’s pay should be. Unlike communist and socialist systems it is not the job of the US government to redistribute wealth.
The reuben fritters on mccolleys.com menu describe something very different from the description in this article ( and the price $ 9.50 / $ 8.50 )
A requirement of my office cleaning job is that I clean the restrooms. Not long ago, I found a pill on the floor in a restroom. I wondered what it was, so I took it home and identified it. I don't remember the exact drug name, but the purpose given was to relieve anxiety and to help prevent panic attacks.
Personally, I had to give up taking an anti-depressant because after several years it didn't really work, yet the side effects continued.
These types of drugs are not addictive like alcohol and we would all be better off to just "buck up" and not be on them.
"It isn't drug addiction that kills addicts, it's drug prohibition. Addicts who get a steady supply of pure morphine or heroin at a known level of potency and clean hypodermics, can live long, happy productive lives."
The argument against this, of course, is that alcohol is legal and highly regulated, and it is the most abused drug, and has destroyed very many lives.
ON DRUG "ADDICTION"
Drug "addiction" is not a disease. A disease manifests itself as a breakdown of one or more of our organs due to any number of internal or external factors. Drug addiction may seem to manifest itself as a disease because continued use of certain drugs is damaging to our organs: for example, the harm done directly to the lungs by cigarette smoke or to the liver by alcohol.
The term "addiction" simply implies a biological change of brain connectivity. This new connectivity causes the drug addict's brain to behave differently than someone whose brain has not been modified by addiction. Furthermore, addiction does not imply a simple cause-and-effect relationship between the drug and the resultant behavior: if it did, intervention by other drugs or behavior modification therapy would be much more predictable and successful.
In fact, the addict's brain as an organ is working just fine, doing what it has been reprogrammed to do: create a demand for the drug of choice, and release large amounts chemicals that induce pleasure to the user when the drug is used - dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, in particular.
This is not to deny that some drugs act directly on our organs, such as the heart, as in the case of amphetamines. Their impact on the brain is less of a rewiring than to create a sudden increase in neurochemicals that stimulate existing brain functionality.
The rewiring process in the brain continues with continued use of the drug or drugs that cause the rewiring. The rewired brain remains rewired even after the drug user ceases to use drugs. This explains "relapses." All the therapeutic treatment in the world is not going to cause the brain to return to its original, unmodified state, in a matter of weeks, months or even years.
As a result, the rewired brain continues to create a craving for the substance that created the intense pleasure so familiar to the user long after drug use ceases. Resisting is a matter of willpower generated in other higher-level brain functionality. However, the lower-level brain functions usually win this battle of wills, as they have a much more powerful impact on behavior.
You experience this sort of battle yourself whenever you find yourself in a situation where your brain is demanding that you urinate, and you are in a situation that doesn't allow it, at least in an unembarassing fashion. If you can't extricate yourself from this situation, you are going to pee your pants, regardless. And drug users will eventually find themselves in a situation from which they cannot extricate themselves.
One solution for the addict is to find activities that are pleasurable, but do not have harmful side effects, either on themself or others. Falling in love with someone is a good start; mountaineering is another; caring for other people will work too. Anything that produces a lot of good feelings to replace those that were being generated by the drugs. Our body doesn't care how they are generated, but we do.

We have been trying to accomplish policy goals with tax cuts since Reagan. Well, since before Reagan, but increasingly it has become a crutch of political rhetoric that never lives up to its promises in practice. We need a highly progressive tax structure that strongly disincentivizes excessive pay and unreasonable hoarding of wealth, in which the gains are used to ensure a thriving commons.
We all benefit from a healthy, well-educated, economically secure population.
