Albany Special Session 3 Off to a Fast Start
"The State Senate just convened, and then adjourned, without doing anything," reports Jimmy Vielkind. The session was ten minutes long, including the religious invocation. Didn't matter -- a number of Democratic senators were absent, making passage of anything unlikely. That does it! says Governor Paterson -- he's threatening to keep the legislators at work through Thanksgiving. This sort of thing has been tried before, though, and nothing ever comes of it. Enjoy Happy Hour, statesmen!
