Daily News Not Happy With Albany

Here are the first five paragraphs (don't worry, they are are short, and wonderful) of today's lead editorial in the New York Daily News, "Beneath contempt: Billionaire Tom Golisano is the worst of a vile crew in the Albany cesspool":

Is there a more dishonorable, less intelligent form of life than the sleaze that inhabits Albany? No.

Has any group of politicians more debased themselves and the once-proud institution in which they serve? No.

Would New York be better off building a sewage treatment plant on the grounds of the Capitol? Yes.

It would then be possible to flush the human wastes whose double-dealing, felonious flirtations and idiotic incompetence have left the state without a functioning government.

Dream on.

The last time the city's also-ran tab was this upset they were talking about Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
