In Jackson, Wyoming I ran into former Vice-President, Dick Cheney in an Albertson's grocery store while he was selecting some milk. He was very pleasant to talk with as I shared some economics stories I tell my students about his work in the Nixon Administration.
Another camp host in Cape Perpetua State Park along the Oregon coast kept bringing us free fire wood. He was a retired police officer from Fort Worth, Texas who saw my Oklahoma Sooners sticker on the back of my car. He said he wanted to "help out an Okie."
