I LOVE AMANDA DENTON’S writing style! Whether you like the topic or not, you just have to love what she does with it. Her voice is so clear you almost forget you’re reading and think you’re just having a conversation with a neighbor. This particular article could teach a whole year’s worth of writing technique in my English classes — extended metaphor, functional fragments, lead writing, effective endings, even a little secondary plot woven in and out of there. I love this writer’s voice.
IF YOU HAVE TO steal tires from a dealership to put on your car you do not NEED that car. This is one large problem … not a pot to pee in. Whereas I ensure I have money in savings and for emergencies some people go out to eat every single day and night. Pour thousands of dollars into a POS car that’s actually worth $400 and haven’t a clue if their five children have anything to eat or drink (that doesn’t come from the golden arches or BK). If you steal tires, from anywhere, you may need to get you lazy @$ off welfare, stop selling dope too, and get a J-O-B like the rest of us you P-O-S!
THERE ARE WAY TOO many people just strolling around well into the early morning hours without good intentions.
I AM IN A neighborhood with thugs and drugs, APD is concerned with a car parked on the wrong side of the street. Way to go.
LOTS OF SKETCHY-LOOKING individuals are flooding that area of North Slappey where the Home Run Foods was robbed, between the sleazy motel and the beggars at the bypass exits. The low rent motel should be shut down, imho.
I FEEL SO BAD for the people who have to go through being robbed who work in the convenience stores.
WHY CAN’T THEY JUST stop the ones that hang outside and loiter in and outside the store.
I USED TO PATRONIZE Enmark all the time as it’s one of the cleanest lot/stores around but the beggars and strange folks from the Dollar Inn drove me away.
IT’S SAD TO SEE that Albany has become such a major crime city. I know my parents dread having to go there for their doctor apartments because of the high crime rate. They always try to find the closest parking space.
UNFORTUNATELY, I AM SEEKING to make my exit from Albany. Came here in 2002 because of a job promotion/relocation. I still say some of the BEST and friendliest people I’ve ever met reside here. I hope crime can be lowered. Everybody has to play a role.
THANKS, TOM KNIGHTON, FOR talking about the solicitation law. It seems that the laws of this time have locked down on just what youth can do to raise money for their organization. Sooner or later, I would not be surprised if the lawmakers make it where we can’t have yard sales or dinners without having some sort of legality issue. What happened to supporting organizations that turn our youth of today into leaders of tomorrow?
WOW! THANK YOU FOR being the FIRST to help our family spread news of Stephanie Amerson’s status. This is what the media is supposed to be about!
I AM NOT A family member or friend of Stephanie Amerson’s family … just a concerned mother! Thanks from my heart for finally getting this story out!
