We knew Eric Holder, soon to be the United States' first black attorney general, was from Elmhurst, Queens and graduated from Stuyvesant. Apparently, he also once owned a 1971 blue Plymouth Duster, which goes some way toward explaining his mustache. And now we learn he also plays a mean game of pickup basketball, which means president-elect Obama better watch out: “I’m not sure he’s ready for my New York game.” [NYT]
