Interests: Fishing, obviously. Lately I have gotten into vegetable gardening, with mixed success so far. I love works about history, American and otherwise, cooking good food and accompanying that with some good drink, if you know what I mean. I love a good political debate when people of different perspectives, but good will, talk in good faith. Er, or I mostly miss that.

I have friends and family who still smoke. I've let them know I'm here if they want help quitting, but I'm not going to badger them about it. I loathed the whole smokefree crusade when I was a smoker, but now I'm glad they won as well. If that makes me a hypocrite to some people so be it.

So former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, convicted on two counts last month in the killing of Justine Damond, was sentenced to 12 1/2 years in prison today. But this struck me as odd: [The judge] sentenced Noor for the... Continue reading

Yeah, I'll see how realistic it is. It's probably easy for me right now since there's not a lot of stuff I need to buy.

The only thing I remember about Schlitz was the "If you're out of Schlitz, your out of beer commercial." I'm sure I drank it baqck in the day, but then, back in the day we weren't too choosy.
