    I've also long been a DBC enthusiast. Must be a NW thing. Cool article.

    Kind of cool 4th amendment story out of Idaho, but the winning quote came from the comments.

    "I hear the Tabernacle Choir does a lovely cover of 'F the police' by NWA..."

    Maybe I'll put it in the suggestion box . . . nah.
    After seeing this post, I brought up this case in our Gospel Principles class a few weeks ago. The Idaho State Police trooper in attendance said there was other information that didn't get included in the case that led to the officer asserting "independent reasonable suspicion". Sadly, I don't remember how I tied it in to the lesson.

    Well, I guess when you have had enormous success and are 85 years old, you can speak your mind.

    My favorite from the interview, Quincy Jones being asked about the Beatles

    That they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherfuckers. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it. I remember once we were in the studio with George Martin, and Ringo had taken three hours for a four-bar thing he was trying to fix on a song. He couldn’t get it. We said, “Mate, why don’t you get some lager and lime, some shepherd’s pie, and take an hour-and-a-half and relax a little bit.” So he did, and we called Ronnie Verrell, a jazz drummer. Ronnie came in for 15 minutes and tore it up. Ringo comes back and says, “George, can you play it back for me one more time?” So George did, and Ringo says, “That didn’t sound so bad.” And I said, “Yeah, motherfucker because it ain’t you.” Great guy, though.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Why do we need to know that this was... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk ???
    Thanks for that link. One year ago today I was on a cruise ship that left Cape Horn in the morning and was headed for Antarctica for four days. We learned about Shackleton and many of the other early explorers as well as modern day scientists. Hiking 1000 miles across Antarctica is something very serious. I'm not too far into this article yet, but I intend to read the whole thing.

    Thanks for sharing.
