The life of a former software engineer, now a law student

Warning: the following post will mean nothing to anyone except people from Baltimore. Which means probably one of my readers (hi, bro).

I just found out from this article that Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader, is the daughter of Tommy D'Alesandro Jr., who was mayor of Baltimore from 1947 to 1959. "Young Tommy" is a sort of Baltimore legend, as was his father "Old Tommy", who was also mayor of Baltimore. In fact, I think my brother may have interviewed him for a school project, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, I'm a big fan of Baltimore, so it's nice to see one of our own getting ahead.
