Remembering Jay Gallagher
Unfortunately, we started off the week on a sad note. The Times Union blogs lost one of its own, a man of an integrity, conviction, and intelligence that every staff member at the Times Union and elsewhere should strive to possess.
Jay began his blog shortly after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer [...]
I was having a late lunch with fellow TU blogger Kacey Bruce (see her posts on Savings Source and Press Start) recently and she said something that, even as someone who isn’t a hardcore Star Wars nerd, made me almost fall out of my chair: her favorite installment of the original [...]
