nobody seems to be able to get Washington going. Coach after coach after coach. I don't get it. Beautiful place. Big PAC12 school next to a beautiful city and state. Mild climate. I would think recruit's would be piling in there.

For me alcohal is not a religious issue even though my faith has taught me it's consumption is not in my best interest. 32 years in law enforcement has provided me with irrefutable evidence that it has no socially redeeming value as a beverage. It makes no one smarter, makes no one more physically proficient, makes no one more creative, makes no one a better person in anyway. It destroys people, families, friends, peers, teammates, co-workers and service men. No woman is more glamorous, no man more worthy, and no children safer.

It was sickening years ago to see beer trucks with bumper stickers proclaiming the alcohal that truck had delievered the year before had contributed $64,000 in taxes because every day I saw destroyed families, lives, careers and caused millions in injuries, lost productivity and incalculable emotional damage.

It does no good, ever!

@SLC watch,

Root beer never made anyone smarter either, or any of the others things to claim.

Perhaps it is also evil?
