    My wife and I were privileged to meet the next POTUS a couple years ago.

    Left to right: next POTUS, my wife, me, my Congressman and Chief Deputy Whip - Peter Roskam.

    Just 'cause this is a perfect place to post this... Great photo by the way, Gene.

    The Quote of the Decade: 

    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." 

    ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

    Glen, I hope that he in fact becomes the next President, I see a close but winable race in just 70 days or so.

    When I got to the Grand, my sciatic pain in my right leg decided to flare up. I could barely make it through 25 targets and decided to take it day to day. Never did get to shoot an event, only a few practice rounds. The pain is better now and I'm shooting our Fall League.
