I'm Connected

My father and I went on a hunting trip in Colorado a few months ago. The drive to the hunting ground was a bit of a trek through some pretty small towns in the middle of nowhere. In one such town, he and I stopped off for a quick breakfast. My dad picks up a newspaper, and runs across a blurb in one of the side columns which he reads aloud.

"1,538, the Number of attorneys who have contributed to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill Ritter's campaign."

A spokesman for the Republican gubernatorial candidate had this to say,

"1,538 lawyers? This must be part of Bill Ritter's 'No Lawyer Left Behind' plan."

We had a good laugh at the clever remark and the ridiculousness of the statistic in general. A few moments later a man approaches us. He explains that he had heard his name come up in our conversation and wanted to meet us.

He introduced himself as Bill Ritter.

Yes, the new governor of Colorado happened to be moving through the same middle of nowhere town. He just happened to stop at the same coffee shop to hear a Kansan and a Okie talking about him. What are the odds?

He was a very good sport about the newspaper article and we all shared a laugh. I figure I can spin that chance meeting into a new career in politics.
