It’s Monday, April 20. Last week flew by with veto session and an ongoing trial.
A few random thoughts in no particular order …
Susan Swecker is an excellent choice for Chairman of the DPVA. I’ve known Susan since I was a mere babe in the House of Delegates. She’s first class.
Excellent choice also by GMU in selecting Dave Paulsen as its next men’s basketball coach. He’s a proven winner with Bucknell, and the exiting of Shaka Smart from VCU promises to reshape recruiting in the Old Dominion. I went to college with Dave back in the Eighties — Williams College represent!
If I had a son that plays football (and I do), there is no better role model, on and off the field, than Troy Polamalu, who just retired after a Hall of Fame career. I used to tell my legal associates that they needed to wear a Polamalu-style wig when they went to court — because that’s the kind of intensity I wanted them to have.
Glad the spring is finally here. Ran the Fairfax Bar 5K last weekend at Fairfax Corner. A shade under 24 minutes. Not very good. Looking to improve on that at Vienna Elementary 5k Sunday morning.
