    He is not only New York's first black Governor but he is also the first blind speaker at the democratic national convention in 2004. His motto is not just to be the first but "to be the first of many."

    Paterson was instrumental in preserving a slave graveyard that was discovered when excavations were made for a federal building. They were just going to throw the bones away and continue with the building but David said no no no.

    Like me he is 20/400 in his best eye. According to the article below he was playing basketball with Mario Cuomo and stole the ball.

    There is something Obamatic about this cat.
