Today, December 22nd, I remember Jim Wright, a U.S. Congressman and future Speaker of the House of Representatives with a special fondness because it would have been his 94th Birthday. Unfortunately, he passed away in May of 2015. In 1982, I was hired as an intern and continued later as one of only twenty full-time assistants to the second most powerful person in the U.S. I was able to finish both my college and law school at night while working for a man that I greatly admired and who, to this day, is one of the kindest people I have ever had the privilege of meeting.
