Here and there

· "We the people" celebrate Constitution Day today. The Franklin D. Roosevelt site in Hyde Park was giving away copies of the cherished “We the people” document until 6:30 p.m. as part of the celebrations. A copy of it was on display. If you missed it, there are plenty of sites with the text of the 220-year-old document. My favorite site about the U.S. Constitution is National Archives Experience. Personally, I like the amendments that came later, especially the first one.

• Ulster County’s Aiden Quinn, was nominated for and Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Miniseries Or A Movie for the HBO miniseries “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,” an adaptation of the Dee Brown book. Quinn lost to Thomas Haden Church for his role in AMC’s “Broken Trail.” Bummer.
