Another question of the day

My second cousin once removed is a judge on the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. For those of you who aren't good with consanguinity tables, let me construct this tree for you -- she is my dad's mom's dad's brother's son's daughter. Shockingly, I have never met her. Nor, for that matter, has my father or grandmother.

So the question is, how do I parlay this into a federal judicial clerkship?

I would go with subtlety.

If you could somehow snare her into a conversation, then have it come up that you two are related. Then have a laugh about some dumb shit and then leave it alone for the time being.

The next time you "bump into her" would be a good time to hint at what you really want.

These are all good suggestions, except the last one. Seeing as how I've never met her, I live in Cincinnati, and she lives in Baltimore, it's going to be pretty hard to "bump into her" and snare her into a conversation.

But the other suggestions. Clearly winners.
