I'd rather be covering the Alaska State Fair which is this week, but I'm stuck in Upstate New York. So, here are some photos from the New York State Fair. It was Governor's Day at the fair, and unlike in Alaska where that might mean free hamburgers and salmon, in New York it means protests and Dinosaur BBQ.

This bunny was quite surprised by my camera.

Upstaters will put up with rain for a generic country music show... but to vote? Probably not.WM-ROBERTS_RAINY_DAY_NY_STATE_FAIR-15

Speaking of voting... Here's the Green Party's Howie Hawkins, he's running for Governor.WM-ROBERTS_RAINY_DAY_NY_STATE_FAIR-83

Just a little off the top, please.

It's not a fair without a cow show.

Ok, now it's time to stop taking photos.
