Happy Father's Day

This story is for those of us who have become so cynical with our elected officials.

Assemblyman Richard Brodsky (D - Westchester) dropped out of the race for New York state attorney general. Not for political reasons, not because of a scandal. Sometimes there are just more important things in life.

Willie Brodsky is the 14-year old daughter of the Assemblyman. She needed a kidney as she was born with an autoimmune condition, causing her body to attack its kidneys. That is where dad stepped in, offering up one of his kidneys.

My hat's off to Richard Brodsky.

But politics knows no rest. Backers of Brodsky were soon contacted by the other candidates asking for their support. Politics as usual.
