About Me

I'm a school principal, historian and staunch conservative.

I'd like to meet

I'm not sure who I would want to meet now. I would have to say Sarah Palin, Steve Forbes, Ron Cey (the Penguin and all time favorite athlete) and John Elway. I have met Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Maya Angelou, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Bill Russell (Celtic Great), Julius "Dr. J" Erving, Lou Holtz, and Historians Stephen Ambrose, Michael Beschloss and Doris Kearns Goodwin and played a round of golf with Paul Newman to name a few.

Interests

I love to play sports and played in the Denver Men's Baseball League for about 15 years. I play basketball and football and have taken up golf although I'm only a 13 handicap.

I love following my beloved Razorbacks in all sports Go Hogs. I'm a fan of the Colorado Rockies, Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche and the Air Force Academy Falcons. I was a huge Dodgers fan until we got the Rockies and now root for the home team.

I love to read, mainly history, biography and classic novels.

I am also an expert on the Kennedy assassination and Oswald killed the president by himself. There was no conspiracy. Of course 9/11 was not an inside job and as much as I would like to blame FDR, he had nothing to do with Pearl Harbor.

Favorite Music

I like Chicago, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Journey, Aerosmith, Jim Croce, Celine Dion, Blue Man Group, Weird Al,

Favorite TV Shows

Andy Griffith Show, Beverley Hillbillies, Cheers, Seinfeld, Hogan's Heroes, Dallas, The Simpsons,

Favorite Movies

Patton, Field of Dreams, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Independence Day, Raiders of the Lost Arc, Ghost, Forest Gump, Apollo 13, Caddyshack, Airplane!, Animal House, anything with John Wayne, A Christmas Story, Speed, Air Force One, Dirty Harry Series, Goldfinger, And Justice for All, Hoosiers, Rudy, Knute Rockne All American (with Ronald Reagan), Major League, Slapshot, Miracle, Remember the Titans, Pride of the Yankees,

Favorite Quotes

Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue. -Barry Goldwaer

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. -Lord Acton

Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other. -Ronald Reagan

Man has passed over 4 million laws in his history and has still not improved on the original Ten Commandments. -Ronald Reagan

Favorite Heroes

Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater and Winston Churchill are the conservative leaders who have defined the conservative movement or as Don McLean might say, the "Father, Son and the Holy Ghost." Other political and military heroes would be Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Palin, Dwight Eisenhower, George S. Patton, Chester Nimitz, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Steve Forbes
