UP FRONT CORNELL H. WINSTON 3 LAW LIBRARIAN 3 RECORDS CENTER SUPERVISOR 3 UNITED STATES ATTORNEY'S OFFICE 3 LOS ANGELES, CA VANTAGE POINT MEMBER PROFILE THREE GOALS FOR THE YEAR? Clean my office (at work and at home), lose enough weight to get into the suit I bought in 20XX, and be a better person and try to make a difference in some- body's life. IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE LAW, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Voting registration laws. My ancestors fought for the right to go to the ballot box, and that sacred right born among the blood of those individuals should be uniform in all 50 states, making the ballot box open to all. WHAT INSPIRES YOU MOST? My maternal grandmother. She never completed schooling past eighth grade. She was born in 1900, married at 16, and spent most of her life as a homemaker, yet encouraged her grandchildren to become someone. She would often tell me, "One day they are going to call you 'Mr. Winston'." I have tried to work, live, and conduct myself so that people would honor the charge she placed on my life. IF YOU WROTE A BOOK, WHAT WOULD ITS TITLE BE AND WHY? It's Really Not That Serious. Even though I am involved in hectic and stressful situations every day, I try not to take things too seriously. I can crack a joke and keep smiling. When people around me are stressed, I usually ask "Is any- body going to die? Is anybody going to be maimed?" If those two things are not going to happen, then it's really not that serious. Photo © 2016 by AALL FAVORITE WEEKEND GETAWAY? Cambria, California. It's a quaint site that sits on the beach, is usually overcast and cool, but it's the per- fect weather for curling up on the couch and having a little quiet time. 8 AALL SPECTRUM | WWW.AALLNET.ORG
