Ahoy Matey!

So there was definitely a navigational theme for Wednesday's events, which began during Speaker Silver's preamble to the State of the State.
Silver said, at this crucial juncture let us adjust our sails together "and set our great state on a course for hope, prosperity," and the promise of a better day.
But he wasn't the only seafaring politician New York had to offer, with Cuomo taking the metaphor to new heights. The best part of Cuomo's speech was when he explained the passing ships in the sea on the budget process, which came with a picture of battleships that represented Cuomo and the legislative leaders.
Cuomo got some major laughs when he pointed out that the missiles from the special interest ships (think submarine sneak attack akin to World War I) were hitting his ship.
