Notes on the photos above: The middle photo at the top is very important to me as I achieved "Stardom" in
The 1991 Lawyers’ Performance Ensemble’s production of “12 Angry Men".
In the bottom row is a photo (2nd from left) of Deb and I at Jim's 25th high school reunion in 2000.
Interesting fact: none of the 60 members of "Future Farmers of America" club at this
Cleveland city high school ever became farmers. The last photo in the second row is one of
my favorites. It is my webmaster Tim and his wife Kaye. Their sites are at QuinnStudioDesign.com.

Notes on the two very important pictures below:
(Left Photo) I worked on Bush 41’s 1988 presidential campaign. I wrote a draft for his inaugural speech: “With malice toward none. With charity for all. With firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right…” The transition team, however, thought that plagiarizing the 1864 inaugural speech by Lincoln wasn’t the direction they wanted to go. They paid for it in 1992 when they lost my vote and, not coincidentally, Ohio and the nation as well.
(Right Photo) Standing outside the Bush 41 limousine in the summer of 1988 at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. It was the Bush-Quayle team’s first stop after the Republican Convention. I’m looking smug here, knowing that I’m one of the few fans of author/gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson that has ever been granted secret service clearance.

Fun With Jim
Jim's dear friend Bob "Denver" Gelchion, a journalism graduate of Ohio State, and former roommate and journalism colleague of Jim, is greeted by the antics of pro-Michigan co-workers at his desk. This occurred on the day before the 11/18/06 OSU vs. Michigan -Big Ten Championship game. After the Buckeyes won, it had to be enjoyable for Bob to toss the maize and blue decorations in the garbage much the same way Tressel, Troy and the Bucks tossed Michigan's undefeated season and immovable defense in the garbage can. Lloyd Carr now spells his name with five L's. Bob has, in recent years, vacationed with the Leickly's in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.
For the record, below are Bob's comments on the office photos:
#1 -- My desk the Friday morning before the Michigan game.
#2 -- Co-workers Irene Silva, left, me and Diana Cervantes, right. Irene and Diana are sisters.
#3 -- Co-workers Richard Clark, left, me and Irene.
#4 -- Co-worker Bob Pettijohn. A Colorado and Duke fan, I've also got him rooting for the Buckeyes.
#5 -- Me at the entrance to our office.
Photo on far right is of the winning touchdown catch taken by friend and future lawyer Dean Bring.
MIRANDA ANNOUNCES ENGAGEMENT!
Notes on photos above: In the 4th photo from left is me in costume doing
The Andersonville Trial in Gallipolis, OH during a Civil War re-enactment.
Brother Frederick Leickly is a serious Civil War re-enactor in the Indianapolis area.
He will be called upon if Lee's army ever heads north into Pennsylvania again.
In the first photo in the bottom row is my brother Fred Leickly and his wife Linda with
my family after Miranda's '06 field hockey game against DePauw in Greencastle, IN.
Fred and Linda's daughter is Bethany King (married to Larry);
their sons are Brandon and Eric. Fred is a pediatric allergist.
In the bottom right photo, my buddy Phil Kramer (#45, just like Archie Griffin, only faster)
and I invade Natasha's Homecoming 2005 dinner. The intrusion turned out to be the
highlight of an otherwise ho-hum evening for Tash.
