Uncle Joe Biden came to town yesterday:

AUBURN | Several weddings were held in central New York Saturday. But only one had Vice President Joe Biden on the guest list.

Biden traveled to Auburn to attend a wedding for his niece, Marren Hunter. Hunter married Gregory Felter in a ceremony Saturday afternoon at St. Mary's Church.

Hunter is employed as an accountant at Currier Plastics in Auburn and Felter works as internal auditor at SRC, a Syracuse-area research and development firm, according to their respective LinkedIn pages.

The bride is the daughter of Michael Hunter, the brother of Biden's first wife, the former Neilia Hunter. Neilia Hunter Biden was a native of Auburn. The Bidens were married for six years until Neilia Hunter Biden and the couple's 1-year-old daughter were killed in a car accident in 1972.

Since his first wife's death, Biden continues to have close ties to the Hunter family and central New York. A graduate of Syracuse University College of Law, Biden has made several return trips to the region since he launched his political career.

(as an aside, his late wife Neilia is my second cousin).

2. He is simply a "good" guy

A trait that is not common among politicians

4. I'll have to correct him on this, though:

 

The choice was to be either the Capital of NYS or to have a prison (from the same article):

"My father-in-law, my deceased wife's old dad from Auburn, New York used to say, 'We made a big mistake,'" Biden recalled. "'We had a choice I don't know if this is true we had a choice between the state prison or the canal. We chose the prison."


The Canal wouldn't have been able to pass thru Auburn given the surrounding topography.
