So many people claim to be absolutely certain it was ultra light planes which have internal combustion engines and make noise- Why they and yourself insist on their ownership of the source of the sightings smacks of inflated egos. There is plenty of room for question- but the absolutism of people who claim to be "pranksters" is questionable. I discount your claim. Perhaps several of those flights were indeed seen and thought to be UFOs, but not all. But I for one really appreciate your participating in the discussion View Comment
Driving down the Taconic in 1983 from a weekend in Ghent we came upon several cars pulled over on the roadside around Kingson exit..I too pulled over when I looked up and saw the V shaped formation of lights hovering very low over the highway. It was larger than the expanse of the breakdown lane the 2 south bound lanes the median and the Northbound lanes...Absolutely silent
You could sense more than see a structure behind the bright lights, it was not more than 100 -200 ft overhead. I thought "hello" and imagined greeting the occupants and sent my thoughts skyward...Our little boy was asleep in the back seat, and after about 5 minutes or so I became a bit fearful- of the unknown...We got back in our car and ducking our heads drove under it for home lickety split. I called the state police barracks the next morning, but got no answers.
In July of 1947 The Yonkers Herald Statesman carried many stories about unknown flying discs in Westchester and around the country

Good old Tea party ...self righteous and smug but as amoral as the worst of the hypocrites who complain about "welfare cheats". 300 hundred years imprisonment- Hmmm that sounds about right View Comment
Oh wait..did you write " for erroneously inflating prices of Coke products in New York" That seems to be an error. GREEDILY overcharging and cheating customers as well as their employees is more the correct cutline on your photo. View Comment
Wow...now she's really gunna get a beaten..."see what you made me do" "now I lost my job " is the mentality of spousal abusers-
and by the way- as Louis CK said on Saturday night live last Saturday..."It's not alright to call that undershirt a "wife beater" and laugh about it. Why on earth is is all right t call it that anyway? View Comment
Coming down the hill from Bryant Pond Rd hard against the rock retaining wall and the guard rail is a very scary drive which to the irritation of the tailgaiting ass behind me I drive at 45 or less...
I understand this is the scenario- hit wall hit guard rail hit car sideswipe another hit guard rail-
and Drugs and vodka may have been contributing factors- just tragic for this young man's family already on hard times. View Comment
The Northbound Taconic at Peekskill Hollow road exit is just a death trap waiting to claim lives.....cars are at speed coming down the hill, and you have to slow to 20 or les to make the turn blocking the right hand lane suddenly- View Comment
In researching my family history and through the help of a genealogist I located several grand uncles descendant's families and learned my Uncle Morris served in the 148th Aerosquadron of the American Expeditionary Forces in France in WWI. The historian of that squadron made available to me through "Fold3" a historical on line archive the after action reports of that squadron for the entire war. It was fascinating reading and gave me goose bumps when I read of one of the writers and my uncle going into town for beer after a baseball game and the Gothe bombers raiding their base in Flanders. It made the entire history come alive and personal for my family. View Comment
Wait a minute.. Did I just read the "suspects" uploaded pornography from a Federal web site?...Yes I just went back to re read this "The investigation showed that the suspects allegedly uploaded or file-shared the illicit pictures without knowing they were doing so on a law enforcement website, authorities said. "---My head is spinning...so whoever created that web site should be arrested right? There s something terribly wrong with that...Exploiting children to catch people who look at exploited children is so wrong. And no I am not an advocate for porn, just don't like to see justice perverted View Comment
