48. P.S. by the way

In 1948, my grandmother was a big NYC fundraiser for the Senate campaign for the then-mayor of Minneapolis. She got to be good friends with him, as did her son, my father. Those friendships lasted a lifetime. His campaign for the Senate was successful, by the way, and he went on to become Vice-President, as did his young protégé twelve years later, so anything is possible! Minnesota Democrats have definitely made their mark in Washington. No reason why your nephew can't continue the tradition, right?

My paternal grandmother was quite a character in her own right. She was labor liason for Republican NYC Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia for a while. He later sacked her for being more friendly with labor than with him!
