The President of the US stopped in Binghamton yesterday to do a town hall meeting at Binghamton University.     Not a lot of people actually got the in person view, but apparently many lined the streets to see the motorcade.   I stayed away from the crowd and traffic jams and just took a clip from the website broadcast.   He said he was told he had to have a "spiedies" while he was here.   Not sure if I want to feel proud or embarrassed that what we had to offer him was some marinated meat her in Bing.

Old Time Rock 'n' Roll

The also serve Hot Pies which is what people around here used to call pizza a long time ago.

A Dirty Slate

Not sure exactly what this project is, but these posters were posted on a building in Binghamton.  Guess someone wants to know what would make Bing. better.    One guy's idea is  to get "Big Belly Trash Cans".    Is that all it would take ?
