I was only surprised by the Pat O’Brien thing because I had never heard of a Pat O’Brien.
Max seems to lean as I do about Courtway and the good old boys pushing for him to lead the lottery- very bad idea.
Full Monty is right- anyone who has spent time with him- will not be voting for him.
Mr. J&B and I agree that Patty O’Brien is g-great!. Loved him in Boys Town. “They’re always after me lucky charms!” HA HA HA! Yesthir!
