While the new columnist at the Cecil Observer doesn’t seem to be dealing with local issues, which are our focus, he is still producing some lively, engaging content, something that’s missing from the local media market. Thus we thought you might be interested in his latest post. We’ll certainly keep an eye on the material he’s producing and hopefully he’ll turn that keyboard to local topics someday. We certainly need someone willing to dig into local matters and poke at them occasionally.
From the Cecil Observer
It’s a small world. Last week I was in Wilmington and ran into a former high school classmate, who told me that his granddaughter is working as an intern in Washington, D.C. With Joe Biden as vice president, he explained, there are a number of Delaware folks down there in decision-making positions. So a friend of a friend spoke to someone who knew someone, and the young lady ended up working inside the White House. Of course, I congratulated him on his family’s good fortune, and we agreed that the one-year internship in such a prestigious setting would open eyes and doors when the young lady applies for a full-time job related to her political science degree.
