New Attorney General Eric Holder Will Serve Barack Obama


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]
