In the small world category, I recently reconnected with a kid I knew in grade school. Well, neither of us are kids any longer and perhaps it was something in the old neighborhood, but we both ended up along similar paths. But his path was west. Jim, we'll call him Jim because, well, that's his name, went to work for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and ended up in dignitary protection and CT work. Now he's helping others learn those skills.
