The Quintessential Sizzle of Karen Meissner

13 February 2017 Written by  Corry Bell
Abraham Lincoln said, “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in those years.” If he could have met Karen Meissner somewhere, somehow, it is possible that she would have been his favorite writer, producer, editor and over-protective Jewish mother. She would have proofread all his speeches until they reached “sizzle factor” status, bringing out her red pen, circling all his errors to make his piece would shine. Had Lincoln actually met her, he may have been as impressed with her as so many others were during her short, but astonishing life. Although Karen wasn’t born until 1951, long after Mr. Lincoln had passed, for this generation, her grammatical skill from as early as the sixth grade earned her a reputation in a multitude of career fields that stretched over three decades.
