Second truth reveal: I have had lunch with Bob Schieffer.
Story: The college I attended had a very interesting lecture series. They would bring in 3-4 speakers every year and charge admission for people in the community to come. There have been a number of very well-known people come and so over the years the lecture series has become fairly popular. Some of the most popular were:
Senator Bob Dole
Dr. Ronan Tynan
General Richard Myers
Dr. Ben Carson
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
After each speaker is done a lunch is served in the speaker’s honor. You can either pay good money to attend this lunch or you can be one of the recipients of the Presidential Scholarship.
I was the latter and had the opportunity to attend the lunch with Mr. Schieffer.
I got to shake his hand and exchange a few words with him about my future goals and aspirations and then sit down in a room with around 100 people and have a delicious lunch. Not terribly exciting, but kind of fun.
Okay, a number of you picked that one, so now you are going to have to choose again!
