What? No tie-dye tie?



The really big news:

Quote
He spent 14 months in the drug court system, he says, scrubbing toilets and cleaning fairgrounds. "I've been sober for two-and-a-half years," he says to applause. "My children are happy. In August, my wife and I will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary. My band is back together with a sold-out tour. And in September I'll play a solo concert at Carnegie Hall with the New York Philharmonic." That last part really impressed the Hill crowd.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

Yeah, trey!
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

2 and half a years is no joke. I am very impressed, and proud of everyone around him that has helped in the process.  Going through that alone, even though in a sense you have to, in your mind, is not easy.

Oh, and good find!

Thank you, Trey, for stepping up.



And, yeah, there's plenty of Phish Fans in DC.

I love what the band did in Sand.  Those last 12-13 minutes were ACE, Tom Ace.  If I were drinking from the toilet, I might have been killed.
Bouncin' - after all that, fuck they could have kicked their instruments in the face and I would have loved to eat some ice cream.

I got a speeding ticket in Essex Co., NY summer of '07--about an hour from Whitehall--and when I showed up in the town courthouse to plead  a few months later, most of the other defendants there were drug court cases. It was cool--DA and judge both were still serious, but respectful in a way I haven't seen when dealing w/ those accused of property & violent crimes.
