Lon-McNeil-09

Tweet For as long as I have known B.J. Fletcher, she has been singularly focused on making whatever she is involved with better. Her secret is real simple.

Roles revisited after 12 years

By   /  March 18, 2011  /  Community, Lon McNeil, Opinion, People  /   Comments

Tweet By Lon McNeil For Doug Lorber and Glenn White, Theatre Albany’s current production of “Scapino” must surely have an element of deja vu mixed in with their performances. Twelve years ago, both were hitting their marks in the same play, as the same characters; Scapino, played by Lorber, and Geronte, played by White. The [...]

Is a revolution due?

By   /  May 5, 2010  /  Lon McNeil  /   Comments

Tweet Is it actually possible to make real, system-wide changes in our government, using the processes and procedures put in place by the very politicians, judges, and bureaucrats that now run this bloated, deficit spending monster?

Albany’s stubborn ignorance

By   /  February 4, 2010  /  Lon McNeil  /   Comments

Tweet Everyone can be stubborn and or ignorant. Many things can cause us to behave stubbornly. Being ignorant about something does not imply stupidity, but simply a lack of knowledge.

RiverQuarium luring in wrong fish

By   /  December 18, 2009  /  Lon McNeil  /   Comments

Tweet It’s hard to be critical when someone does something for you that is sincerely meant as a nice gesture, but it actually does you more harm than good. You just say, “Thank you,” and move on. In this case though, someone needs to point out the kindness of the Flint RiverQuarium’s offer of a [...]

Put the pen down, ADICA

By   /  November 19, 2009  /  Lon McNeil, News  /   Comments

Tweet And this group is still meeting to decide how to spend millions of our dollars? You have got to be kidding me. It is one of three things; the powers that really run things downtown are either corrupt, ignorant, or apathetic. Actually, I believe it is all three. The Albany-Dougherty Inner City Authority will be using their [...]
