On New York’s Potential Next Senator

On TrekBBS yesterday, a poster, perhaps as a joke, perhaps in all seriousness, floated the idea of novelist Keith R.A. DeCandido to fill New York’s vacant Senate seat when Senator Hillary Clinton is confirmed next month as the next Secretary of State.

Keith was left speechless by this turn of events.

No social problem is too intractable for Keith DeCandido.

In the spirit of lending moral support to the campaign, I’ve used my few photo editing skills to whip together a campaign poster:

Yeah, I’m rotten with sloganeering at 7 o’clock in the morning; the coffee hasn’t kicked in yet. 😉
