Newsmakers Reception

Looking around the room, I was struck by how everyone was … well … normal. Lots of those people are really good at their jobs. They’re also very committed, smart and responsible. But they’re just regular, good folk – the kind you talk to every day. I was glad there wasn’t a lot of pretentiousness or one-ups-manship (for the record, I’m not sure either of those are real words). Reinforced my theory that people are just people. None of us – from the President to the lady who is outside sweeping the sidewalk in front of the building as I write this – are really that different.
