there was a great obit in the Post today.

wait, i should preface that by saying I read the entire paper every day. And, probably because I grew up here, I give the obits a more than cursory glance.

one given prominent placement today was quite interesting, even though it was the life story of a woman I probably would have disliked. well, maybe not personally, but in her professional life. A conservative lawyer who served as President of our county council in the early 60s, and railroaded a bunch of rezonings through, overruling master plans and disregarding planners reccomendations. Many were later thrown out because of the way they'd been pushed through.

but enough about that. Here's what I loved. This quote, from her husband:

"Her philosophy -- toward bridge and toward life -- was simple, he said: "She was seldom in error and never in doubt."

not that anyone has said the same about me....

Good quote, one that is often used to describe lawyers.

and the lady in question was a lawyer!

i recognized it as one I've heard before, but I've got no idea where it comes from.
