Razor's Edge
Learned today that my son up at Univ. Alaska - Anchorage saw a nativeman attempt suicide by swallowing a bunch of pills out on the street.  He called 911 and then stayed with and encouraged the man until help came.  (While other good Samaritans diverted car traffic around them.)  

Sometimes you wonder if you were a good enough father, and then you get proof.  Well done, Dennis.  We are proud of you.

Gold Rush

Razor's Edge
Years ago at TOF's over-the-hill 40th b'day party he was given a "newspaper" full of headlines and such from the year he was born.  Included was a list of the price of several things in birth year versus then-current year, including the median wage, an ounce of gold, a new home, a new Ford automobile, a loaf of bread, a jug of wine and some thou.
