    Did you really read his book? I didn't, so I'll take your word for it.
    (and no, I really didn't read it...last book I read was Endurance, about Shackelton's antartic expedition. Makes us look like pansies by comparison)

    Hey, maybe there's a fun thread in that? What's the last book, or favorite book, you've read?

    Absolutely not! Just heard that reported any number of times on tv and radio. Of course I believe anything I hear from professional journalists.

    our drug of choice was beer, preferably Coors which we had to import from West Texas since Coors had not gotten into the cities due to lack of brewery capacity to get into those markets, they drank Lone Star in Austin YUK, smoked a few too many cigarettes too....stupid

    in my last year of vet school at Texas A&M (1969) we heard about a couple of South America students who were growing peyote in a window box in their dorm room but I had no idea what peyote was, that was my first awareness of drugs on the university campus and I was 23 years old.....
    At least I made it clear that I was talking about my alma mater, a bastion of eastern liberal elitists. Your problem, Ed, is that you are just too old. Anyone graduating pre-Woodstock just missed the bus (Ken Kesey's that is). There was a small group of post Woodstockers, including people like Steve Forbes and now Justice Sam Alito, who were definitely in the alcohol only set and even then in moderation. However, campus dealers were active in both the SDS and the Young Republicans, not because of any ideological leanings, but purely to be close to their customers.
    From my point of view, you guys are both old... When Woodstock happend, I was in grade school.

    I am reminded of that on occasion when the body will not keep up with the spirit but it sure as heck beats the alternative

    My only surviving immediate family member is one of my older brothers (6 years my senior) who had his 70th birthday recently. We wonder how in the hell 50 years disappeared so fast, seems like just the other day he was in law school at UT while I was in vet school at TAMU.

    As my recently departed close friend A.C. Ray often said "there's nothing golden about the golden years"
