Upstate's health

While I've been taking a Thanksgiving break, NYCO has been taking a hard look at upstate New York's past, present, and future and how it relates - and doesn't - to downstate and the rest of the country. I heartily recommend her Treasure bath on Wall Street, with its tough conclusion:

We’re often told that upstate depends on Wall Street for its very existence, but I find it hard to believe that will last long when it seems that not even downstaters benefit from it all that much.

After that, take a look at Spoon Theory, about how upstaters are hoping for a cure to their ills.
