Wit and Wisdom Dispensed
Michael Kelly is an Irishman, which may explain not only his writing prowess but his gift of gab. Kelly shared a number of his experiences as a longtime newspaper columnist and reporter with a large crowd of doctors, lawyers and guests on March 14. He closed with a personal story that chronicled his daughter Bridget’s ordeal in 2002 that left her near death after a brutal attack. She survived and thrived and speaks out against sexual violence. She and her father credit law enforcement, the courts and the medical professions for her nearly-miraculous recovery and the apprehension and punishment of her attacker.
The members of the Omaha Bar Association and the Metro Omaha Medical Society come together every year at a joint dinner. The two professions often intersect and the dinner is meant to keep lines of communication open and to encourage collegiality.
