Thanksgiving Thoughts

Back when I was working as a brakeman/conductor for Burlington Northern Railroad, it was this time a year that I got the busiest. When you were on the extra board, you were called the most during holidays and bad weather. I think I worked every Christmas and New Year’s, and probably Thanksgiving also, when I was a brakeman.

It was all part of the job.

It’s time for North Dakota to do the right thing

As a proud graduate of the University of North Dakota, I've been appalled at the process of replacing the revered Fighting Sioux name with the so-called nickname vote. Even though I practice law in Texas, I spearheaded a legal effort to stop the vote and have written a series of opinion pieces that have been published in North Dakota media. This op-ed was published in the state's largest newspaper, the Grand Forks Herald, and was also published in the Dickinson Press.
