New York's Blind Ex-Governor Drove A Go Kart In Syracuse

Going blind is a terrible thing for anyone, but especially people who enjoy driving. Former New York governor David Paterson is legally blind, but managed to finagle his way into a 14-lap run at a go kart track in Syracuse, N.Y. last week.

Paterson, who was accompanied by a police officer, went slow and came in last. But a track manager said that he had fun on his 3.5-mile race, becoming the first ex-governor and the first legally blind person to run the course. (Hat tip to Rob!)
