COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of December 7, 2018

COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of December 7, 2018

No time with the sharks: The week started with a breakfast in Florida with Irv Rosenfeld, my friend and colleague for nearly 20 years. Irv is one of the five remaining, federal marijuana patients in the USA who receives 300 joints per month for his rare bone spur condition.

The next 7 days on the National Review (very conservative org and magazine) were enjoyable and worthwhile, both to relax and to interact with the 300 conservatives and 2,000 other passengers on board. Other than the 4 guys who advocated a solution to the heroin problem was to simply shoot all heroin users (a true, Final Solution), I had another 50 odd chats off my heroin shirt, all thoughtful. One in particular I remember, as the asker had just retired after 30 years a NY state trooper. He was already in the COP mind-set of let the doctors deal with drug people.

I had constructive chats with several of their reporters and columnists and believe this will bear fruit in 2019. Although several of you suggested wearing my life vest 24/7, I’m happy to report no close calls.
