Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Those states are Louisiana, Washington, Utah, and Oregon. In four states, those graduating from ABA-accredited law firms got very lucky because of COVID-19.

The lack of focused, sustained eye contact lowers his status and makes him appear nervous, shifty - and worst of all - unconfident. From the Green Room: Use your eyes to connect with each person in your audience.

Other media outfits, as usual, are probably having him on-air commenting on Louisiana, Minnesota, Texas, and what could be next. Immediately after Dallas happened, Elie Mystal posted on Facebook that if he said what he thought, he would be fired. Since I care a lot about Mystal I left the comment "Say nothing."
