Congratulations, Carol, for contributing not only a vibrant little business to the renaissance in Patchogue, but for providing the kind of integrity our village needs for Senators like Gillibrand to feel safe and respected enough to visit. I am very proud to know you!!!

Carol, not funny, you lost a potential customer. A Pack of Hacks....this is the best they can do for job creation????????? Bishop a bribe taking hack who bankrupted SouthHampton as finance chief and GILLY an attorney who defended tobacco with the defense that they never ever knew cigs were bad. A professional liar. Like the bloated fellow in the background. Why do pols gain so much weight after they are elected to office?? : )

Snoop....a potential customer? My store has been open for over a year and you haven't been in yet? What were you waiting for? There are many business owners in town who have poltical views different from mine. I wouldn't dream of not using their services based on that. Our town needs all the customer support it can get, and that's something on which we can all agree.

Carol, I love cupcakes!! I don't find references to terrorist activity funny at all. What has our country come to when an upstate US Senator(cough, cough... cigs are good for you Gilly), a congressman(Pelosi puppet), come to Patchogue to brag about tax breaks for a cupcake shop. Enjoy my taxes and the publically financed publicity. PS Send Gillly a cigarette flavoured cupcake loaded with nicotine, after all she says it is not addicting or bad for you.....professional liar. On principal, I would never let a piece of garbage who represented big tabacco clients that have addicted and killed countless people into my Village. But looking at the fat bellies on the pols... Dig in!! LOL

Snoop, perhaps you need to look up the word "bipartisan"? Standing next to the Senator that day was Dean Murray, who also happens to be a personal friend of mine. Somehow we are able to have different opinions without threatening one another's livlihoods. ....and...FYI, when I get my plutonium I have no intention of engaging in "terrorist activitiy". I plan on seceding from the US and forming my own counrty. Perhaps, given your passion for politics and our shared loathing of smoking, you would like a prominent position in the government of the new nation of Carolsperfectworldia? I will appoint you Minister of Not Making Snarky Comments About People's Physical Appearance....oh, wait! ..uh, maybe not.
