At last, a sane, calm, intelligent black man to put things in order in Albany. This is what we all need. I thought the comment re blindness here displayed cruelty and should be removed from this page. Let's be sensitive about the man's disability.

You want to spend time talking about blindness, I've got an issue for you. In the talk about MTA funding, how about the fact the MTA wants to put more stuff that is *inaccessible* to blind people into the subway stations while they block access and even entrance for some of us. What's the impact of a blind governor on the MTA, and disability access in general? access for blind people? Didn't know there *were* issues? Well, I haven't heard them on the radio, TV or newspapers, but I am about to go face them again in my commute today. There's your excuse to talk about the Governor's blindness in an appropriate way.

Does David Patterson become a superdelegate? Who is he supporting Clinton or Obama?

Personally, I think Governor Patterson will have greater insight and clearer vision for the state than the politicians who preceeded him and who's eyes were elsewhere.
