– Arthur Shawcross wasn’t Rochester’s only serial killer. John White was suspected of murdering prostitutes around the same time, but he died before police could make an arrest. The Buffalo News ran a wire story crediting a database researcher for exposing the murders, which is simply not true. The case got extensive attention in Rochester in the 1990s. Reporters who remember the coverage are incredulous:

– A New York Times reporter put on a tux and crashed an exlcusive Wall Street fraternity party. What he saw is reminiscent of the Buffalo law firm Halloween party.

– Ursula Burns is selling her six-bedroom, six-bath home in Brighton. It’s quite beautiful.

– Kodak’s bankruptcy could complicate the redevelopment of Eastman Business Park. notably, Assemblyman Joe Morelle is concerned the governor’s office isn’t engaged in the importance of the industrial complex’s future.

– Maybe there’s hope for Kodak’s motion picture film division. A study finds the preservation of digital movies is a huge issue. They don’t hold up like film.

– The FCC is looking at NFL blackout rules. The Buffalo News has contact information if you’d like to weigh in. I always thought it was kind of nervy for the government to require broadcast and cable companies to block out a signal of games televised at publicly-funded stadiums. Others think one has nothing to do with the other.

– “You look like you just rolled out of bed.” Apparently, that’s all the rage now. The Wall Street Journal tells us pajama pants and loungewear is very trendy. The New York Times writes messy hair and smudged makeup is cool. Let’s hope this fad fades fast.
