The Kansas Peach

Once when Ty Cobb, a partner at Hogan Lovells, was trying a case before a particularly cantankerous judge, he wondered if he should worry when the judge asked him to approach the bench. Cobb was a young lawyer at the time, cocky and given to cracking the occasional joke to the jury. It was only his third time before this particular judge, who was known for dressing down lawyers for missteps. The opposing counsel rose with Cobb, but the judge waved him away. When Cobb approached, the judge smiled at him. "Are those new boots?" he asked.

The GOP's Daddy Issues

While running for president in 2012, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was chatting up some students at Otterbein University about how they could get ahead in this world. He offered that his friend, Jimmy John, borrowed $20,000 from his parents to start a sandwich shop. "This kind of divisiveness, this attack of success, is very different than what we've seen in our country's history," said the candidate. "We've always encouraged young people: Take a shot, go for it, take a risk, get the education, borrow money if you have to from your parents, start a business."
