Here's Ed and Bess celebrating Koch's 1977 mayoral primary victory over Mario Cuomo. Was Bess on board to bring a sheen of heterosexual legitimacy to Koch's campaign? It's water under the bridge now. We leave the "Bess Mess" of the early 80's for another time. All in all, I think she deserves a bridge named after her too.
