Top Critics on Albany Session: Not Fresh

With the close of legislative session in Albany, the reviews from critics are in. If Rotten Tomatoes collected the results like it does for movies reviews, the results would be not fresh.

Here's a smattering of the coverage from a few "Top Critics":

Danny Hakim covers session for the Times, and what was left undone, which was preceded by an editorial about the change of majority leader in the Senate that noted the lack of reform. Yesterday, Nicolas Confessore capped things off about the a piece about not expecting the unexpected in Albany.

Rick Karlin of the Times Union was more evenhanded and notes the unforeseen adversity in Albany. Good government groups were less apologetic.

Newsday's Liz Moore points out the work left undone.

Finally, Tom Precious of the Buffalo News offers up a straightforward appraisal with what did and didn't happen.

We're on the edge of our seats in anticipation of the sequel expected next year.
