The 55th Governor of the State of New York

David Paterson may not be the light at the end of the tunnel for New York, but he is at least a light in the tunnel, a significant, symbolic, inspirational, comforting light (irony perhaps intended for the blind and yet hardly disabled man from Harlem). He is, especially in contrast to the fire and brimstone that preceded him, a beacon of hope, of some reconciliation, if not outright peace. And Paterson's reaching out, his deft touch and his very welcomed tone, encompassing and non-threatening, bode well for what might happen in New York and elsewhere, even on a national and global scale if we elect politicians who want to serve the people, as in all of the people.

Welcome, David Paterson.
