    being a bit nit-picky, I know, but 3 errors I noticed in “The River Lock…..”
    1) Schenecady newspaper he delivered was not the Times Gazette, as he
    writes, but just The Schenectady Gazette at that time. It is now
    the Daily Gazette weekdays and the Sunday Gazette on Sunday
    2) It is not Colony Mall, but rather Colonie Center
    3) In “Rolling on the River” the lyrics are not “pumped a lot of pain,”
    but rather “pumped a lot of tane” (as in octane).
