At today's meeting, we decided to give credit to a Buffalo innovation that's drawing national attention, Judge Robert Russell's veterans court. We'll also be looking at the failure of Gov. Paterson's lame state-employee buyout offer, and at the state Senate's failure to enact meaningful ethics reforms.
We also noted that, contrary to what we had in the mayoral primary editorial based on early returns, turnout was fairly strong in a couple of the districts carried by Mickey Kearns as well. We'd gone with raw numbers, and the later returns showed the more meaningful percentages of registered voters actually voting. Not a dominant point, but an interesting one.
