Earlier today Deval Patrick announced that he was running for the U.S. presidency. He is a former civil rights lawyer and was the first African-American Governor of Massachusetts from 2007 to 2015.
While politics is not something that I want to be discussed with any frequency in this forum, Patrick does have any interesting legacy. His father, Pat Patrick, played sax with Sun Ra for 40 years. The two did not have a great relationship, but eventually reconciled.
