"Hizzona" has passed on

The Buffalo News: Home: Former Mayor James D. Griffin dies at 78 in Orchard Park nursing home
Might not mean much to anyone who didn't grow up in Buffalo, but Jimmy Griffin was an indelible part of mine and many others' childhood. Who can forget his immortal advice to a city ravaged by winter storms in 1985:

Stay inside, grab a six-pack and watch a good football game.
There was ever only one mayor of Buffalo. RIP, Jimmy
