No black beard here

Posted: Tuesday, February 08, 2000

In a recent letter to the editor, Guy Crockroft wrote an excellent letter about HB 182. It is very rare for a legislative aide to be named in a letter to the editor, and I feel as I have finally been recognized.

I was disappointed that my boss, Rep. Pete Kott, was referred to as Black Beard. My boss served in the U.S. Air Force and I in the U.S. Navy. He is clean-shaven and my beard is now silver, but the fly boys always get the glory.

I must reflect on the concept of the role of government protecting citizens from themselves. Anyway getting revenue from tourists seems like a good idea.

Black Beard's faithful assistant, Patrick Harman
