The Pulitzer Prize-winning writer William Kennedy hails from Albany, N.Y., which is also the venue of many of his novels. Kennedy could not write a better script than an All-Catholic Italian-Irish team to run New York State.
New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced his candidacy for governor a few days ago. Today he chose a tough-talking Irish mayor from Rochester, N.Y., who is also a former cop, as his running mate.
Things in Albany and throughout New York state are going to get very interesting and possibly the stuff of great novels.
