The Campaign For DA

Thanksgiving Thought

I don't know why I like this week so much. Perhaps because, for me, it is so nostalgic.

I am now in my early forties (sheesh). But, despite the passage of all those years, on Thanksgiving I will have the remarkable sensation of sitting down for dinner in the same house, in the same room, and in the same chair that I have celebrated Thanksgiving in since I could first walk.

And I always remember, as I sit down, that I was in this special place as a second grader, as a junior high kid, as a senior in high school, as I a college kid, as a law school student, as a bright eyed guy entering the work force, as a DA, as an ex-DA, and whatever it is I have now become.

 As I said, I like this week.
