Hobbies and Interests
Backpacking - In summer, I enjoy cross-country backpacking in the High Sierra and in winter the Grand Canyon. Both locations provide a spiritual sensation others may experience when visiting Jerusalem, Mecca, or Tibet.

Lacrosse - for the past thirty-nine years I have enjoyed the fastest game on two feet as player, coach, official, and fan.

Swimming - just trying to stay healthy.

Personal Note
If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.
