Nancy Pelosi's visit to Newport

It was certainly a privilege to attend the "Women in Leadership" reception at Belcourt Castle on the afternoon of Saturday, July 28, to hear Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The diverse gathering enjoyed her comments, as well as those of Congressman Patrick Kennedy. To say the least, the visiting dignitaries were warmly received (no pun intended, regardless of the late July heat and humidity!). As the various local and state political office-holders were introduced, it struck me that the smallest state in the Union has quite a few women in power. Here's hoping the number increases.
