COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of July 7, 2017

Too Old / Ineffective ??: Now that I am collecting social security, of course from time to time I doubt my ability to move the issue in Washington. Introspection and chatting with peers helps me understand my worth and my weaknesses.

I had just left a House office, when an intern, a 21 y/o local university student, came out and wanted a few minutes. He had been present to hear my 3-4-minute chatter, mini-presentation moments before. He said he was impressed and wanted to volunteer his time, after his intern period had ended this fall. We ended up with a 10 minute chat….. I guess I still have ‘the Right Stuff.’

BTW, I will put him to work this fall.
