Rip Van Winkle is awake
Posted: January 21, 2017

Johnny has been one of my best friends for a long time. We can tell stories on each other that are best left untold — at least to others.

It’s not so much that he lives in the past, it’s just that once he is comfortable with something he doesn’t want it to change. Somewhat like Rip Van Winkle, he will wake up periodically and notice that things have changed. Johnny is one of those husbands who likes to grocery shop.

Faith in meritocracy has never wavered and, in large measure, the history of the United States is a story of the continuing efforts to extend opportunities to all citizens.
