Hey everyone....thanks for the comments!
A few responses:
Tom: I definitely enjoy VM's bagel sandwiches with goat cheese but didn't want to make the article too Market heavy. Wouldn't mind doing a market only piece at some point though!
Justin: Good info. For whatever reason I've never stopped into Zimmerman's. Have to put that on my list!
HeyBuddy/Colin: Hard to write an article about I site I hadn't seen before, but I like your site a lot and will be following it in the future. Impossible for me to cover everything in a short article and your site seems to hit a lot of interesting places!
Kate: Union Street makes a solid sandwich as well but it fell into the same area as Scott's so I didn't want to double up on that style.
I applaud Mr. Bechtold for following his convictions and not forcing OTHERS to support and subsidize his beliefs.
Why these infantile attacks on Al Gore?
Al Gore has gotten rich by promoting this theory, living in a 10,000 sq ft house, driving large SUV and flying massive jets all over the world. Why isn't all of his riches going to the "cause"?
I have always liked solar and wind power, but until they become sustainable let's stop with the subsidies. Why not rebuild our carbon based economy, and from the tax revenue, invest in R&D?
It seems foolish to subsidize the manufacturer, and then subsidize the purchaser too. And currently, even subsidized, solar doesn't come close to the 20 year payback lifetime.
And yes, people are still buying cars to get to work, so they can support others with the already high taxes. For most people, once you buy a car, you can't afford much else, no less solar collecters, but a very typical comment from the " highly intelligent" left.
The end sex scene between Bill and Sookie reminded me of a line from a Patton Oswalt bit.
"He lays on top of his beloved like a pile of laundry on top of another pile of laundry..."
Al Gore's money has nothing to do with doing something good for the environment. For the price of an average new car today, you can fit your home with solar panels that will provide all the power you need. There are so many people buying new cars these days...money does not seem to be that big of a problem for many people.
For everyone who believes wind turbines are noisy, I invite you to drive up to Harbec and park next to one of the turbines. What do you hear? Just the traffic on 104.
Heck yeah ! Put a " HOSTEL " in Rochester. We have one in Syracuse and it attracts, the young and the young at heart. It's in the beginning of our " Sedgewick " area, our answer to Rochester's " Highland Park " neighborhood. As of now, the cheapest place in downtown Rochester is the " Cadillac Hotel ". NUFF SAID !
This is disappointing on many levels. I thought it was an article about breakfastallthetime.blogspot.com
It is not.
breakfastallthetime.blogspot.com is original.
This article is not.
HeyBuddy, great blog! And great article, CITY!
HOWEVER, I am a devotee to the Union St Bakery at the Public Market. Best breakfast sandwich. Best no-frills Rochester atmosphere. Best coffee -- dark roast, $1, free refills!
Open every day!
Did someone say breakfast sandwich?! A couple more to try: breakfastallthetime.blogspot.com
Flour City Bread - don't ask for your egg on bread - you'll have to buy a loaf - and put up with major attitude.
Al Gore is a non-scientist multimillionaire who has made tens of millions of dollars investing in green technology. Most of us are just getting by because people like Al Gore have all the money. I want to protect the environment, but buying solar cells and other things with money I don't have doesn't seem like the answer.
Zimmerman's Bologna Supreme is a top breakfast sammich. Also, South Wedge Diner's breakfast sandwich with the sausage patty is great as it's seasoned with rosemary.
The results of Germany's move to renewable sourcing of electricity is much more complex than the author would have one think. Similar for Japan's efforts to shut down nuclear power plants. The cost of generating electricity from renewable sources is considerably higher, and in an effort not to lose jobs due to the move, companies are being exempted from the surcharges, so even more is paid by consumers. Somehow, one does not hear about that. Attached is a link to a NYt article that does a fair job of explaining what is going on.
Our inaction and political paralysis has brought us to the brink of catastrophic climate change. Instead of rebuilding our transit and energy infrastructures we now have a outdated railroad system used increasingly for Bakken oil 'bomb' trains transporting volatile fossil deluent destined for export abroad. Meanwhile Asian and European economies outperform and out-compete us economically and continue to build their new high-speed rail and renewable energy infrastructures. The US has become 'exceptional' only in its spectacular failures.
House calls? Why should social workers be entitled to cars?
I'd be interested to see a comparison of our school tax rates with those of Raleigh... Surely taxes would be significantly reduced if a plan such as this were put in place here, right?
Excellent article on Climate Change and recent local downpours. What is extraordinary about this article is that there isn’t anything remotely like it on any other local Rochester media. And that is even more extraordinary because frequent downpours and other public health issues have all been studied in New York Climate Studies—like this Climate Change factsheet from Cornell http://climatechange.cornell.edu/wp-conten… Or the very comprehensive ‘ClimateAid’ report funded by NYSERDA http://www.nyserda.ny.gov/climaid
We don’t just have to get used to more frequent heavy downpours in our regions, we have to adapt to that, and we have to mitigate (stop) an increase in greenhouse gases, so this doesn’t get even worse.
Sure California would love to have some of our rain right now, but it doesn’t work that way and besides, we cannot handle frequent massive flooding without combine sewer overflows (raw sewage in our drinking water) and road washouts. Climate Change isn’t about fearmogerning; it’s about planning for so folks can be protected and we can build up the funds to handle extreme weather.
That is all going to take serious involvement by our media.

Zimmerman's at the Public Market has a sandwich called the "Bologna Supreme", which includes a fried slice of baloney and some meatsauce along with the egg/cheese/bacon. It's very good.
Balsam Bagels also does bagels as breakfast sandwiches, including an option with vegetarian sausage.
