What Do Paralegals and Jim Croce Have in Common?

The following message was sent yesterday to the subscribers of my ezine. I immediately received a response from a wonderful paralegal:

I was tickled to see you mention Jim Croce. I still remember watching the music awards when he won posthumously. I wonder how many of your subscribers don’t know who he is. That’s the stuff that makes me feel old. hee hee hee.
