Are U F-ing Kidding Me?

As part of today’s “Good Morning, Buffalo” column, The Buffalo News reports the following: The Western New York Regional Council, one of those 10 regional councils created statewide by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, holds its first meeting today to start mapping out the area’s future. The meeting, at the University at Buffalo, is closed to the public, but when it’s over, council members are expected to talk about the public forums they plan to hold in the near future.

Good Morning, Buffalo News! Ever heard of the Open Meetings Law? (That’s the one that’s supposed to help journalists do their jobs.)

    How can you expect this posse of rough-and-tumble Job Creators to do the voodoo that they do so well, exposed to the light of day? Close your eyes, Mr. Quigley, and think of jobs, jobs, jobs: more jobs than you can shake a stick at!

    Besides, if you were a genuine Job Creator and lover of Western New York, wouldn’t YOU have been invited to be part of the Western New York Regional Council? Then you, too, could help keep the proceedings quiet.

    What a great way to start the fiasco!

      Be advised that going to coffee house open mikes does not “support local musicians”. These places rarely pay musicians anything, let alone a living wage.
