A deserving legend
Congratulations on the Virginia 500 Power List issue. It is thorough
and very well-researched. It will be on lots of people’s desks. You in my opinion picked the appropriate person to lead off the living legends section. Bill Goodwin has been incredibly successful and generous.
I have had the pleasure of representing him, watching him lead and marveling at his incredible intellect and foresight. Although his title
says retired, don’t bet on it.

I just finished reading Bernie Niemeier’s column, “Antitrust Matters,” in the September issue. I spent over 20 years as a communications lawyer in D.C. before entering the world of statewide Virginia politics. Not only did I know a young Mark Warner, who preached the benefits of cell phones before most people had ever heard of them, but more importantly, I saw the rise of innovative, competitive companies that — as you point out — would not have occurred if we had left the AT&T monopoly in place. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the need to update our antitrust laws.
