RIP-Mario Cuomo RIP-Bess Myerson

Two great figures of NY politics from my youth. Not on the same level, I realize, but both part of my formative years as an East Coast political junkie.

Mario Cuomo, a Giant in NY, Liberal Politics, Dies


My 2nd favorite political convention speech ever:





@@@@@@


Bess Myerson, New Yorker of Beauty, Wit, Service and Scandal, Dies at 90

Shockingly, still our only Jewish Miss America...and that was in 1945!

RIP to both, though I'd only heard of Bess Meyerson before. She was always an interesting figure to me, appeared in some pop culture stuff and I'd read some other things about her.

Also RIP to Rod Taylor. Does that make three?
