A friend is among the clergy at the Church of the Presidents, where yesterday began. She served at the prayer service, escorting the VP-elect and his wife to his seat. Her boss escorted the President-Elect and his wife to their seats. Does that mean that I know the new President with only three degrees of separation?
Another friend sat right near Oprah at the same event. Since he sat near Oprah, who knows the President, is that my other three degrees of separation?
A third friend served at the National Cathedral Prayer service this morning as a gatekeeper of sorts, and held the door for the President's entourage.
So does three degrees of separation times three mean nine degrees of separation (multiplication) or just one (division)?
There's a reason why I'm no longer in banking.
