Customers earn two simple planning. Railroad commissioner visited Omaha in 1897 "I am out on my annual tri p of inspection over the land grant roads." former Confederate Gen. Wade Hampton told the Omaha Bee during his brief 1897 visit to Omaha. The Bee said on July 2: "General Wade Hampton of South Carolina. who, before the rebel- lion. was accounted the richest man in the south, who owned 1.000 slaves and whose plantations ex- tended over 20,000 acres along the banks of the Mississippi, was here yesterday, preparatory to a trip over the land grant railway lines of the transcontinental territory, in the ca- pacity of the United States com- missioner of railways.'" Hampton was accompanied by his daughter, "a fine type of the southern young woman," and by William Calhoun, the general's private secretary. The party arrived in the city over the Union Pacific Railroad shortly after 9 o'clock. A Bee reporter called upon Hampton in his railcar and obtained a short interview. Hampton began by twit- ting reporters: "The modem re- porter seems to be ubiquitous. I've got myself into heaps of trouble because I wouldn't see them. When I see one I am always reminded of an Englishman who said he fa- vored shooting off an admiral ev- ery once in a while just to make the ones living more valiant. That's the best way to treat reporters...

Harriman, then president of the Illinois Central, for $110 million. Hampton expected to cover about twelve thousand miles dur- ing his six-week trip of inspection. During the morning T. M. Orr and P. J. Nichols of the Union Pacific called upon General Hampton to pay their respects. Later the party, with the exception of the general, who remained in his railcar, visited the points of interest around Omaha. In November of 1897 Hampton was replaced as U.S. Commissioner of Railroads by another former Confederate general, James Longstreet, who served until 1904. The Bee on May 30 noted that P. P. Shelby, formerly of Omaha, was vying for the position, but he was unsuccessful.

While those personal obstacles can lead to disappointing outcomes, they can also be bar. nessed into personal motivators, say experts. "When it comes to success, set- backs can be used to motivate one to action, rather than the alterna- tive," says five-time New York Timesbest-selling authorandjour- nalist Josh Young, who has studied this concept intimately. As author of And Give up Showbiz?, the new biography of illustrious personal injury lawyer Fred Levin, Young documents the rise and success of someone to whom life handed lem- ons. Levin is listed in every edition of "Best Lawyers in America" and is inducted into the Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame. But his still-thriving legal career that spans over a half- century wasn't written in the stars. Levin grew up the son of a pawn- broker and dog track manager at the end of the Great Depression. Barely passing college, his success was certainly against the odds. Having closely studied and tracked Levin' s exponential rise to success; Young is offering insights into how to turn your impediments When a door is closed, open a window: When your limitations are beyond your control, view them as opportunities. As a Jewish lawyer, few doors were open to Levin in the early 1960s, especially in the particularly profitable area of cor- porate law. Levin leveraged this anti-Semitism that was prevalent at the start of his career to forge a path for himself as a personal in- jury lawyer -- a profession that was then in its infancy and distained by the established, but would eventu- ally become wildly lucrative. Levin also harnessed his own personal experiences with discrimi- nation to become an open advocate for African Americans and gays, Continued to page 7
