Yesterday, I was invited to the White House.
No big deal, right?!
The National Endowment for the Humanities allowed each of the local law schools to send a few students to see a film screening of a documentary called Prohibition, and then
listen to a panel including the co-producer of the movie, a 4th Circuit
judge, a Constitutional scholar, and the author of the book the movie
was based on. I was selected from my law school by lottery. It was all very interesting!
I was unsure of the photo-taking protocol so I only snapped this one picture:
Unfortunately, no member of the First Family popped their head in to say hello (hey, a girl can dream). The screening was part of the National Endowment for the Humanities' Bridging Culture Through Law Film Series. I had no idea what a profound impact those few years of Prohibition had on legislation and constitutional law and even the rise of organized crime!
Afterward, we walked back to the law school for a reception. They served alcohol which I found really funny / ironic since we had just watched a movie on Prohibition!
to a speakeasy party! I know now!
On an unrelated note, Blake is currently (if you're reading this between 9 AM and 1 PM) taking his second of four final exams this quarter. Wish him luck!
