Get Early Bird Tickets Here
Heads up. Drink supplies other than aged whiskey should be fine. The food must be finalized three days in advance so don't wait to get your tickets. If we exceed 50 Early Bird Tickets before the 15th then I can order more brisket.

|Several weeks ago there was a feeding frenzy by the local newspaper. They pitted Republican Congressman Mike Turner against Democratic Mayor Nan Whaley over the issue of immigration reform and the need to accommodate illegal aliens under the age of 18 coming to the U.S. illegally. Rather than point fingers and name call, I sent a letter to the president proposing a very simple solution. That was to issue a North American Intercontinental Passport that grant Canadians, Mexicans and U.S. Citizens the ability to travel anywhere in North America and a system to permit working in adjacent countries. Charge an additional $20 for passports and use the money to secure, along with Mexico and Canada, the southern Mexico border which is a narrower border to patrol. I did get a reply. It is the typical political rhetoric that one would expect from a staff member to the White House but I wanted to share it with you. I also felt that you should know how I deal with problem solving. Instead of writing to complain about the comments an elected official makes publicly, I offer "out of the box" solutions. Would this work? Possibly. The real question is "What would it cost to try?"|
