    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    You're right. I've noticed her before, and as far as I can tell, she is marvelous.

    Competence! There is no substitute.

    I found this article about Lydia Callis....

    NEW YORK - When New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg appeared at a news conference Wednesday without Lydia Callis at his side, fans of the sign-language interpreter immediately expressed their disappointment via Twitter.

    "Wait, where is Lydia Callis???? (aka our favorite sign language interpreter)" @abbygardner tweeted.

    "Watching Bloomberg's latest briefing. So sad Lydia Callis is not the sign language interpreter #Sandy" tweeted @kyledoyle.

    "Damn they change the #signlanguagelady ... WE WANT LYDIA CALLIS BACK !!!!" @JoeyStugotz6 posted.

    Callis, 30, became an Internet sensation just three days earlier because of the dramatic facial expressions and body language she used to translate Bloomberg's dire warnings about the dangers coming with Superstorm Sandy.

    The article goes on to explain the overdone facial expressions and sometimes theatrical looking gestures. Lydia is a real pro..
