Even though for some inexplicable reason that Target someHOW managed to stay out of the crime section, it still is very BAD BAD news. Under my administration, I would work with Target to have airport type security at that place. That's the least I could do to help the hard-working citizens of Albany. As far as the Albany Bowl goes, under my administration this seemingly intractable problem would be solved once and for all. PEACE OUT!!! >>> Gary.
