Tip of the Hat

Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 12:01 am

Tip of the hat to the more than 80 prominent Republicans who … (signed) a legal brief to the U. S. Supreme Court in favor of same-sex marriage! The party of Lincoln can once again stand up for equality for all!

Thanks to Matt Elliott, a young Fort Wayne attorney, who just happened to be in line behind me at Jimmy John's today at lunchtime when I discovered that my lunch money — a $20 bill — had been blown out of my hands by the blustery, wintry mix that was falling and blowing upon the Fort. He graciously insisted on paying my bill so that I would not have to venture out in the “mess” and return with cash. Thanks again, Matt; I will pay it forward.
