They had that special session last night in Albany and guess what? Nothing happened, again. That’s why New York is pretending to have a Board of Ed today. (On the upside, the stalled senate kept a new city sales tax from going into effect.) Today in Albany there was a “leadership meeting” scheduled between Democrats and Republicans today, but at the last minute the Dems went “psych!” and backed out. Republicans are holding the meeting without them, so there. Paterson keeps telling the senators to take their seats and play senate, but even if they do they’ll just repeat the same charade. It’s really getting on time to send in the tasers.
