So I was not chosen for the paid opinion thingy today. After breakfast at a swank hotel, the law firm sent half of us home with $100 for our time. A lovely woman I ate breakfast with is a retiree who works with her local church group which crosses weekly into Reynosa, Mexico across the border (a dangerous town which the drug cartels control) to work with unaccompanied refugee children. Others at our table strongly supported her work so I was among friends. She was chosen for the study which pays $300 for the day. I would have liked the dough but meeting her was worth losing out.
