Pearl of Wisdom # 54 Realizing You Are Wrong

Nothing will be more infuriating for you as public official than that very moment when you are in a heated discussion with a political adversary or speaking out in a well attended public meeting and you suddenly realize that you are totally wrong in what you have been saying.

Pearl of Wisdom # 53 Sending Out Minutes

We all know it is very important to send out the minutes of any public meeting in a timely manner, but we sometimes forget ...

Only two delegates to the Continental Congress actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776: John Hancock and Charles Thomson.

Most of the delegates did not sign the Declaration of Independence until August 2 and the last signature was not added until 1781 - five years later.
