I was a god for a day

I Am GodAfter I graduated from Saint Louis University law school in 1982, my wife and I moved back to Peoria. At that time, my wife was pregnant with our second child.

Accumulate WealthDuring my first year of practicing law (1983), I got a call from a young man who had received a speeding ticket.  He was employed by Domino’s Pizza as a deliveryman, and he wanted me to help him keep the ticket off his driving record.  For purposes of discussion, I’m going to call him Jim. When Jim got pulled over by the police officer, he was racing to deliver a pizza… Read More
