Tom Saidy ’82

Living in Washington, DC, in the Trump era is anything, but boring. I can see flames coming out of White House chimney from my office! Crazy days. Very different from my days working for George H.W. Bush back in the late 80s and 90s. He was such a great man. Went to his funeral and […]
