Dateline: America's Fields & Streams (mainly Streams)
According to the U.S. Department of Fishing, their numbers not mine, according to the fishing feds 22.3 million prostates…fish.
More on them…20% of all prostates older than 16…fish.
The National Cancer Institute says that 17% of prostates in America will get cancer in their lifetime.
If the above numbers are true, here's a very sobering thought…3,791,000…almost 4 million anglers…4 MILLION…will get prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Dateline: Packin' for The Classic
And, you know of course…me.
I'm going to rant here, so if you don't like rants, best you go away.
I'm going to be ranting about something that has been stuck in my craw since my very first Bassmaster Classic Media day.
It's a question, and an answer that goes like this:
Reporter dude to Classic Competitor dude, "So tell me, give me your top three picks for who will win this." May not be exactly that, but something along those lines.
Classic competitor dude back to reporter dude, "I think maybe blah blah has a good shot, and you know blah blah blah knows this river/lake/pond, and then there is always blah blah blahVD."

"He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day…"
Dateline: Christmas Time
We are all, made of snow.
Snowmen, snowwomen….waiting for the melt to come.
This year, I became a snowman in the sun, starting to see the puddle form, and because of that I want to ask of one thing. One thing from you.
In this season of giving, I would like a gift, hope you don't mind me asking, I'm mindful of the strain of the season. But here's my Christmas gift list, and on it, just one thing. This…
…I'd like you to take a child fishing.
And I would like for that child…
…to be YOU.

Once again, without asking, The Family, Of Us had my back. So far, except for the legal stuff, which a big Virginia firm handled, guided though by the father of an Elite Angler, a renowned member of the Breakfast Club who also got his family involved, so far everything has been done by The Family, Of Us.
Friends, friends of friends, relatives of friends of friends, at one point for one thing it was a Six Degree of Separation of the Foundation.
