Cops on the Hill:   Stories from the weeks of July 15 and 22, 2022

Celebrate Progress: On the 10th I gathered at the private home of long-time activist and LEAP speaker, Dick Kennedy to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the legalization of marijuana in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  It was a sentimental and powerful feeling to pass a few hours with dedicated volunteers who made it all happen.


Doing Nothing is Unacceptable:     One meeting in 2 weeks is unbearable.  Thus, I left this week for Iowa and the 2022 RAGBRAI event.  Recall the Three Amigos went out in 2019 to meet/ride with a few presidential candidates.  Recall my accident at mile 6, breaking 3 ribs and a shoulder.  Recall I “damned the torpedoes” and rode the last 70 miles on the 7th day, having good chats every 8-10 minutes, as 24,000 of my closest friends rode by me much faster…..I promise to keep a better eye out for the potholes in the road, lest my family follows thru on their promise to dump me out of the casket and beat to death a Second Time!
