Sorry. I had places to go. A retirement party for Judge Lee Munson. Police Chief Stuart Thomas, Prosecutor Larry Jegley and dozens more cops and lawyers and lots of others. Tom Schueck gave me a relatively pleasant greeting, considering what I've written here and there. Stubby Stumbaugh. What can you say? He would have enlivened Congress, that's for sure. Wish I could repeat his joke.
Then The Rep's "It's a Wonderful Life." A Christmas confection. On the way home, the Capitol lights had a special glow against the foggy sky. Ho, ho, ho, he exclaimed.
Back to you.
