    That would be alarming to me too. Especially if you didn't know him that well.

    When I worked for the Secretary of Defense in the early 70's, my family stayed in GA. Some men show up asking my wife questions about why she was calling the office of the SecDef, of course it was me she was calling.

    Did they waterboard you ? If so, that explains a lot :)

    Check every lead is the safest way to handle these things, but 2 hours with this may seem extreme, but they had to probably finish their job once they started.

    Yes, I am 100% sure that he said some version of he wished he would die, but did not say he'd like to kill him.

    Racist? Why does what he say have to be racist? What race is he? What race is his wife?

    I also know his mind is sharp as ever. He's a salty old cuss who doesn't have any use for a lot of things including surveys. I am pretty sure he was irritated (because he often is) at the stupidity of the survey and the question, and it got taken seriously.

    I'm amused that he didn't pull any punches. Because that is him. Some old cowboys are all gurgle and no guts. He's got guts. Sometimes too much guts.

    For those wondering, he's damned amused that he was seen as a threat. From what I have been told he's made several comments questioning their brains, manhood, and lack of common sense. Some of it to their faces according to my sister-in-law. Everyone in their family is laughing their rear ends off.

    The funniest thing to me is that they questioned an old cowboy in his home. He's got Winchesters and revolvers all over his front room. I am pretty sure they nearly fainted at all his guns and his matter of fact way of speaking his mind. If anyone thinks he was the one who was scared I assure you he wasn't.

    Well, to be fair I'm sure the Secret Service wasn't scared of a 90 year old rancher either.

    Though if they are, that's pretty sad.

    It's a great story, Hos. Thank you for sharing it. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Unfortunately, a few posters may feel compelled to play damage control whenever they feel their side is being slighted -- even if the slight resides entirely in their minds.

    Don't know about that; it's a natural reaction to sarcastic posts like:

    Interesting how you would see this as sarcastic. I think I agree with you when you say don't know.

    Our Founding Fathers didn't trust Government yet when it's suggested that their might be reason not to trust this or any Government, it's sarcastic.

    OK then.

    That about rounds out this thread for me.

    Did Hos make the "sarcastic" comment to which you alluded?

    Alas, I hold that dubious honor Scip.

    BTW, how are you doing this evening?

    Typically, they are handled by third parties. It' not like Obama's kids are calling.

    I'm doing well. Thanks for asking.

    My wife and I are enjoying our vacation in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I've always had a passion for the Southwest -- the art, culture, and cuisine. I actually have a minor in Southwestern studies.

    Having been born from Texas, I'm technically from the Southwest, but no place embodies the region like New Mexico and Arizona.

    As I was visiting the various stores in Santa Fe today, I stopped by a chile shop where I asked the proprietor to explain the difference between New Mexican and Tex Mex cuisine.

    He explained that Tex Mex uses a tomato base (red sauce) or a tomatillo (green sauce) base in its salsas. New Mexican, conversely, uses no tomatoes or tomatillos; it's all peppers.

    Sorry for the long, boring answer to your simple question. I'm just excited about my newfound knowledge.

    Not at all Scip and good to hear you are enjoying Santa Fe. If you need anything, give me a ring and I'll do my best to help. I'll PM you the number just in case. Please enjoy N.M.

    :)
