It's about time

A couple of lawmakers are reintroducing a bill to divide New York into two states (Upstate and Downstate)...

Some state lawmakers have introduced a bill that would allow counties to hold a referendum on whether the state should be separated into upstate and downstate.

The measure has gone nowhere in the Legislature and most likely never will, but Sen. Joseph Robach, R-Greece, Monroe County, and Assemblyman Stephen Hawley, R-Batavia, Genesee County, have submitted it again this year, saying the idea is something that voters should be allowed to weigh in on.

I, for one, am all for this if it rids us of Sheldon Silver once and for all. If it does happen, Lackawanna should immediately be named the new state's capital city and the official state fish should be the Cazenovia Creek "suckerfish" ...
