Careful readers may remember that

Careful readers may remember that our good friend John Kline was elected to Congress last month; he will be my Congressman, in fact. Here is a photo of the Trunk (R) and me (L) with John at a victory party last weekend. John is a retired Marine colonel who served as the Marines’ liaison with Congress, was part of a small group who did long-range weapons procurement planning for the Marines, and carried the briefcase containing the nuclear launch codes for Presidents Carter and Reagan. This is, of course, in addition to active duty in places like Viet Nam and Mogadishu. John’s crushing victory over incumbent Bill Luther was one of many bright spots in last month’s election, and went a long way toward confirming my faith in democracy.
