.. even your father [the late Mario Cuomo] would not have done something this stupid …

.. I have seen these commercials for Start Up New York all the time . They are damned obnoxious . But , are they ever damned expensive …

.. Cuomo directed more than $1.5 billion to the Greater Buffalo area . Yeah , there are a great deal of schools and universities in or near there . Also , he redirected another $1.5 billion into other areas of upstate New York . So , what was the effect ? …
