Dear Editor:

Here we go again. It's Albany nonsense time.

Stories are circulating that at a special session of the legislature, the salons will raise their salary and that Governor Cuomo has already agreed to sign the bill authorizing it.

“Not so,” say our worth assembly persons and state senators; they have been so busy doing the public's business that they haven't had time to think about the public putting a little extra in the pot.

Of course, after November 6 the good folks will have an epiphany and concentrate on something that eluded them before election day: do we deserve and shall we raise our salary?

State Senator Michael Gianaris says “it's premature to be discussing pay raises when minimum wage is an issue.” But it's not premature after the public has voted our Albany back into office for another two years.

The polls tell us that the public has a 9 percent favorable image of Congress. What do you think they the favorable percentage of the New York legislature will be?
