No, it's a joke. The Governor of NY David Paterson, was supposed to speak at and accept an award from the NGLTF Awards dinner recently, but he was doing what needed to be done to assure that NY did the right thing and the legislature didn't want to cooperate, so he produced this video which was projected at the event.
This guy is a gem. NY is in good hands.
I'm spent. Working 10 - 12 hours daily is leaving me drained. Following a dinner of leftovers there is a shower and bed in my immediate future.
And so it goes.
