Six Degrees of Separation

Over the weekend in Milwaukee for the Fourth of July holiday, I talked to a friend I haven't seen for several years. She mentioned someone she knows who just started working at the Library. I got all the details and sent this person a note. She responded today and a connection was established. This isn't the first time. An international discussion resulted in a common ingredient which was even more interesting. That one included parties from Iran, Denmark, Sweden, California, and the Library. Aside from these two incidents, someone I know at the Library who hails from China is oddly connected to the President of China - so because I know him, I am connected too. A Senator lives down the street from us on Capitol Hill and his daughter is best friends with one if my high school classmates. I suppose if you talk long enough and fish for the clues there may be something to this whole Kevin Bacon theory. If nothing else it's fun exploring.
