It is sad that Democrats in New York have defeated Geraldine Ferraro. Instead of being the Democrats' Year of the Woman, this is turning into their Year of That Woman.

- Because there are 11 Republican voters in Washington, D.C., a Democrat named Anthony Williams will be its new mayor. He will be the first D.C. mayor in years whose community service was not ordered by a judge.- In sharp contrast to Marion Berry, Mr. Williams is a refreshingly low-key technocrat who went to Harvard and Yale. In a black pride parade, he might wear a bow tie with a dashiki while singing, "We shall endeavor to overcome."
