I invited the Congressman to visit and he was kind enough to oblige. After chatting with him, I learned we had many things in common. He attended Wethersfield High. I attended at nearby Rocky Hill. We both had Polish mothers. We both went to law school. He went to UCONN Law, I attended Pace. We both started our legal careers practicing in Hartford. He interned with Senator Chris Dodd. I worked for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. We were both about the same age. Somewhere along the way, we took different paths. Murphy went on to become a Congressman and is now running for the United States Senate. I defend sticky fingered grandmothers and trust fund kids. I was recently ordered by a judge to take custody of a cat in a divorce dispute. Where did our paths separate? I must have taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque.

the Congressman if he really met the president.
I also invited Timothy O'Brien, the mayor of New Britain, to introduce him to the various business owners from our group. Attendees included a hodge podge of business people including aerospace manufacturers, attorneys, deli owners, photographers, and insurance agents. I presented the mayor with a top hat from the group. Why? Because every mayor should have a top hat. We also gave him a pair of cufflinks from the 1960 democratic national convention. It was the one that chose JFK as the party's nominee. I extend my warmest thanks to the Mayor and the Congressman for supporting our efforts.
