So much to say...

Hack's hack Swanick went up to North Tonawanda (Niagara County) to renew his son's driver's license. Setting aside the fact that anyone with a computer and a dialup connection can get that accomplished on-line, Swanick merely adds insult to injury here. The clerk's office makes a commission from the state for every DMV transaction. That money then goes into the county's general fund. Swanick is part of the problem that got Erie County the crisis it enjoys today; at least he could reap what he's sown. Instead, he gave the cash to Niagara County (which, miraculously, also has an ever-increasing Medicaid burden, yet isn't in full crisis mode). I also hand it to former train engineer Chuck Swanick, who has enough free time to run up to the DMV at 8:30 on a weekday morning.
