Wondering, on Wednesday (v15)

All these Christmas carols on the radio, and well, it gets a girl to thinking, and wondering on Wednesday, what would happen if the lyrics were changed up just a bit, to be more reflective of our situation here in New York.

For example:

You better watch out, you better not cry, 
I hope that you vote, I'm telling you why, 
Santa Cuomo's coming to town. 

He's making a list, and checking it twice, 
Gonna tell us who's naughty or nice, 
Santa Cuomo's coming to town.

He knows if you've been gambling, 
And he sure hopes that you will --
He's building three more places
For you to lose your fill... 

O You better watch out, you better not cry, 
I hope that you vote, I'm telling you why, 
Santa Cuomo's coming to town. 

He won't let you go fracking,
He knows that it's no good.
But he says that you'll get backing
if you bring jobs to the hood...

O you better watch out, you better not cry, 
I hope that you vote, I'm telling you why, 
Santa Cuomo's coming to town....

Santa Cuomo's coming to town!

That's right. We finally have our decision on fracking (that's a big negative) and on the new gambling meccas, which will be built in Schenectady, Sullivan County, and in the Seneca County town of Tyre, more commonly known as the place where you get off the Thruway to go to the Magee Diner, the outlet mall, or to Waterloo. 

Wilmorite, the developer chosen for the Eastern Southern Tier/Fingerlakes area, now has to get a license (a cool $35 million for that process), has promised to start work within the week, and hopes to open by the end of next year. 

That, my friends, has me wondering on a whole nother set of questions, but that's a post for a different Wednesday.
