It's just been announced: Spitzer has stepped down, and David Paterson is our new governor.
The circumstances are hideous, but I couldn't be more pleased at the outcome. Our first African-American governor, and one who (having a disability himself) is known for his advocacy for the visually and physically impaired. Columbia and Hofstra grad, father of two.
And hey, I just found out that they proclaimed March Developmental Disabilities Month in New York state. Who knew?
