230. Okay, I stand chastised - a little
Okay, 80 is not (so) old. My mother reminds me of this whenever we speak.

Being an attorney doesn't mean as much to me as it used to. I think it was Dear Abby who made the observation years and years ago that half of all doctors graduate in the bottom half of their class. Same with lawyers, I suppose. So the designation is not all that significant. And being real estate lawyer is different from being an election lawyer is different from being a county prosecutor, etc.

Also, her observation about what appear to be improprieties is great. I commend her for speaking out. And, as I wrote earlier, I hope her commentary becomes testimony at a trial for this fraud of a county official. But I was struck by what I interpreted as passivity in the face of likely fraud.
