NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo has continued a recent media blitz with an appearance on David Letterman’s “Late Show,” delivering a Top 10 list of ways “New York State is Better than Ever.”

Tuesday night’s list included items such as “we’re up to three Starbucks per capita” and “You know the Finger Lakes? We’re adding a thumb.”

Other items poked fun at some of the state’s unusually named towns, including “Otsego and Oswego finally figured out which town was which” and “Still the only state in America with a Coxsackie” (kuk-SAHK’-ee).
