Hope from an Unexpected Source

Today I read a letter that upstate Republican state senators sent to the governor, stating their intention, as Senator Nozzolio (R-54th) put it, to "continue fighting during the upcoming State budget negotiations to ensure a fair and equal distribution of aid to all regions of the State and help local schools control costs by eliminating unfunded mandates." It's an outstanding letter, signed by a lot of people I haven't thought much of in the past, and a reminder that in the notorious upstate-downstate battles for NYS domination, there's often a Republican-Democratic divide. I give Nozzolio and our other locals, Seward and O'Mara, credit for stepping up.
