  1. Melissa, My mind is in the mud. With Mr. Richard Long's wannabe politician ego he gets what he goes after, in this case it's his thrice married secretary. She'll look good on his arm he thinks attending the governor's ball. Not that the new bride Laura would have any objections to this marriage. Mr Long must have seemed a far cry from her previous catches. Business school really paid off & fast! With bride in place Mr. Long travels the states campaigning leaving the Mrs. alone, a lot. And while he's away, way over on the west coast with the kids, Laura develops a sudden fondness for flying and goes on several trips a week. I think she fell for the pilot, Mr. Groah.
