He understood that, in order to win a game of cards, a player had to have a strong hand. As a high school and college student still years away from joining the family business, I watched my late father, Wellington Mara, brave those losing seasons with grace and dignity.

It is incredible—that is, it is incredible to any reasonable mind—to consider what happened in this case: to think of the lengths to which state legislators, the Republican! Despite the bumpy beginning to the relationship, it was a successful team-up. They are asked to do so by a free people who vote into office representatives: people who will speak for us.
