Plute: Well, I remember my first 20 years growing up in that little southern Indiana town of 600. Yes, Vietnam was a stupid war and I think U.S. would be better off if WWII was our last war. What did we accomplish in Korea? My twin brother joined the navy the week after the Korean War started. His plane got shout up once but he made it back to the carrier. Mogadishu has to be the all time winner. I remember during the Vietnam war the kid across the street with the bumper sticker, "One A-bomb could ruin your whole day." I always told him without an A-bomb could ruin your whole life. Now, he is probably the best known psychiatrist in Las Vegas. He went to school in Fresno. I wanted my son to join the army or navy after H.S. but he wouldn't have any part of it. Now, my grandson is 12 and I sure don't want him going off to anyplace like Iraq. Wise people change their mind whereas fools never do.
Penn-I'm curious where you eat these days in Waukegan? When I was a kid best restaurant in area was run by an Irishman Ray Radigan's just south of Kenosha. Hope Persh returns soon the board has been wounded by attacks and I think I'll cease firing for weekend at least.Had great grilled Tuna for lunch with Covey Run Chardonnay.....couldn't find that in Waukegan I bet. Check Six PS-ABT & HSP looking like life-rafts in rough seas.
Plute, got in so late on monday, wasn't much choice, went to Firkin's for a couple of Beemish Stouts and called it a night. Tuesday, an old favorite, not very fancy but great steaks, Jimmy's Charhouse, they also serve Guinness, so that helped the decision process.
