This editorial left me scratching my head....The citizens of the Adirondack Park, and New Yorkers in general, are faced with so many challenges. With all due respect....Is this really the best you could come up with?

Henry J. Kaiser had made a fortune building "Liberty Ships" - lead as ballast - he'd "recovered" same postwar,& many of those ships? "moth-balled" in Haverstraw Bay,& as kids we'd watched them be towed one-by-one - off to E.Asia - down the Hudson at the point where salt-water remained, only to turn "fresh" a couple of miles north where the "Palisades" ceased to exist.

Kaiser had entered the Automotive market in the late 40's - but capitalized at a mere $1bil, hadn't had a chance. Preston Tucker had been doomed from the start - but Congress & Detroit had feared him to the max.

Henry J. had gotten his start in Lake Placid - a "Photo Shop" next to "Mids Park" - the shop now "Designer Olive-Oil," - & the apartments above now a Hotel.

Crowley? Hang tight - Your side has won. SL seems also to be destined "The Millennial's Dream." MDs? Keep scripting - Crowley would NEVER post your &

FDR had been a non-walking deadman in 1944 - his blood-pressure had remained "classified" for decades. "President Henry Wallace" had not been an option for the post-Axis period - Sen.Truman - born of the corrupt MO Pendergast machine yet an "Untouchable" had gotten the nod -

Harry Truman had had little "cred" - but lived just long enough to see "The Buck Stops Here" garner appreciation in the Watergate era. "Revisionism" seems to be your bag, Crowley....

Boneyard in Tucson has room for a "Warthog" - does Pima Air Museum have one? Had been there the week after SR-71 "retired" & they had scored one - near the Brazilian B-29 & a B-52 - destined for another 40 years to make it to 100?

...Where is Harry Truman when you need him?"

Even as the new VP in 1945 - Harry Truman had been unaware of "The Manhattan Project," yet Joe Stalin had been "up to speed."

Get a grip, Crowley - you are in over your head once again. The VTOL "Osprey" is a boondoggle - not really fit for military or civilian use, but it's components are produced in all but a few of the 50 states.

What "replacement 'Warthog'" is "in the wings?"

The "International Space Station" is also a boondoggle - a "gesture of cooperation" & rest assured, if Vlad Putin himself had read your opine re:"stranding US personnel" if US/EU "get tough" with economic sanctions? It might have brightened his day...
