A brush with greatness
Well...not quite. Last night I was at my firm's annual dinner at a very nice place in Baltimore. As I was leaving, past me walked none other than the Rev. Jesse Jackson. Apparently he was attending someone's birthday party (as I heard them singing it), and he was present with a man whom I believed to be former Maryland State Senator Larry Young (D), who was expelled from the Senate for using his office for personal gain. And there were a few others, one of whom I believed to be Rep. Elijah Commings (D-MD).
Jesse gave me a wave (using all five fingers, of all things!) when I greeted him.
The man does not look well.
Which was why I did not break up his party to ask for an autograph and a picture with him. I suppose that's not the only reason...
