    Spitzer gave two "State of the State" speeches this year - one was specifically for Upstate.

    It was a popular speech, pretty well received.  Not so much because of the billion dollar economic revitalization proposals (nobody really believes they can be paid for) but because of the fact the speech was given at all.

    Sort of a watershed moment in state history, really.  Tacit admission that the state is not unified, which everyone knows but politicians would never admit.

    In my view, admitting the profound rift is the first step toward fixing it.
