The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Maryland paralegal Cindy Whartman braved the cold to attend President Obama’s inauguration, but admitted, “My feet are frozen, my nose is frozen, the tips of my fingers are frozen, and I just couldn’t take it anymore.” See the The New York Times.
Another Maryland paralegal Aprile Ransome traveled to the inauguration and chatted with 60-year old Martha Ward, who expressed the desire of many Americans when she said she wanted to be present to “feel” it. See the Hartford Courant.
California paralegal Tamu Thompson travelled to Washington, D.C. with her sister to reunite with a longtime friend. Ms. Thompson rose to the challenge of obtaining winter wear in her hometown of San Diego. “It was more of a task to get thermal underwear than getting airline tickets,” she said. “Getting hats and scarves was like finding a needle in a haystack. They don’t sell those in San Diego.” See The Warren Record.
Nevada paralegal Rhonda Kennedy marveled, “To see an African-American president in my lifetime, even though I am a Republican, it is still overwhelming to see that and to say, ‘I can do anything.'” See The Review-Journal.
