Back at the beginning of his term he had a bit of an ethics problem where a bunch of jobs were opened up for his buds and there was the usual cover-up, etc. Instead of letting the judicial process take its course, he just issued blanket pardons for anyone and everyone who might or might not have done stuff. Considering he is also a Baptist minister it was a smashing display of ethics.

As a side note, I bought my 280SE from the Asst Attorney General who was investigating and prosecuting the case against Ernie & Co.

It was also his plane that flew into restricted airspace during Reagan’s Funeral that caused the Capitol to be evacuated.

Nothing big going on this week. Expecting some rain tomorrow, light snow saturday 10 Day Weather Forecast for Lexington, KY (40503) - weather.com

pm me your contact info and we can hook up if you wish. I intend to be putting motor mounts in a car this weekend so anything to avoid that would be welcomed.
