Those Elizabeth Minors

This story about Republican dominance in the Winchester area caught my eye because it mentioned that the mayor of Winchester is a woman named Elizabeth Minor, which was also the name of my grandmother.

Not too long ago, I went to a little seminar on networking, and fired up with ideas about the need to meet and greet, I proceeded to a cocktail party and dinner with a bunch of lawyers and their wives and decided to try out the techniques that had just been instilled in my brain. Instead, I spent the biggest chunk of my time telling stories about Elizabeth Minor to the wife of a Richmond lawyer, but at least she was not bored. Grandma was not boring.
