Making Lemonade

Louise Slaughter gave one of her usual gee-whiz, aw-shucks performances at her news conference today, as documented by 13-WHAM’s Sean Carroll.

“I had my first campaign poster made,” Rep. Slaughter joked at Tuesday’s media availability.  “It says cast your vote for Louise Slaughter; a leg up on the competition.”

The only real news out of the event was that Louise plans to be back at work at the beginning of May, and that she’s receiving experimental treatment at Strong Hospital, using a drug approved for osteoporosis that also may speed healing of fractures in older people.
