The Daily Star (the paper cover the Oneonta area) gives kudos to Governor Cuomo for demanding ethics reform. There is no doubt that ethics (the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation) have gone by the wayside as evidenced by daily news reports of politicians who have succumbed to their dark desires. Ethics reform is necessary, however, it is incumbent upon the voters to make better choices. Let's face it, we have all kinds of laws on the books that people break every day, in other words, no law will be able to prevent a crime, rather it will give society the means to "punish" the person who breaks the law/commits the crime. In the end, it is up to society, to raise the standards.
