Is Local Senator Dan Squadron Becoming a Rock Star?
Is Dan Squadron on the verge of becoming a rock star? In the May 31st Rolling Stone - the magazine's "Big Issue" ? MSNBC'sChris Hayes names Squadron as one of his four choices for "What Should Be Big", along with "outrage over watering-down of Dodd-Frank Act", "the death of the solar industry", and the high-brow culture magazine Jacobin. Writes Hughes, "For an up-and-coming progressive politician, New York state senator Daniel Squadron ? who represents Lower Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn ? is young and clearly going places." Squadron recently made another well-publicized foray into the music arena when he quoted the Beastie Boys' song "Sure Shot" on the floor of the Senate as part of a resolution he introduced honoring one of the pioneering rap group's members, Adam Yauch, who passed away from cancer on May 4th at age 47.
