One could be forgiven for concluding that the extent of property rights here are to be determined by public opinion, as opposed to the law.

There was a fine gem in the Times Union today that regurgitated the AG's suggestion that paddlers are being stopped and harassed, and which stated "Now the DEC has succeeded in getting the attorney generalís office to take its side in its quest to expand the law to open up Shingle Shanty and similar waterways to everyone."

So, the Times Union supports the DEC and Attorney General's "quest to expand the law" to the detriment of property owners. At least they aren't shy about it and don't make any effort to conceal what this is about for some.
