Good Afternoon, Dave

Your recitation of the history of the Green Party in New York is typical 
of efforts to create political alternatives.  In my view, we will be 
better served when we forget labels like Left and Right and Green and 
Liberal and Conservative and devote our energy to seeking out and 
electing the best, brightest, and most ethical of our people to 
represent us.

Incidentally, Dave, and admittedly off-topic, every time I see one of 
your posts it carries me back many years.  I was brought up in Warsaw 
(Wyoming County), and spent a great deal of time on the road.  I used to 
pass through Owego quite frequently.  This was in the 50's, before Route 
17 became a superhighway.  Although most of my trips were south of the 
river, quite a few of them took me down Route 96 and through Owego. 
Route 96 was one of my favorite stretches of highway.

Years later, when my boys were young, I rented two canoes, went to the 
park on the east edge of Owego, put the canoes in the water and spent 
several days going down the Susquehanna.  My wife picked us up near 
Dalton, just west of Scranton.  For me, it was a once-in-a-lifetime 

Please excuse my reminiscing, but each time I see one of your posts, I'm 
reminded of how beautiful Owego and the surrounding country is.
