Quote of the day–Mike Brown

Did you pick this guy or did your daughter?


Mike Brown
September 7, 2008
While at a USPSA pistol match after having a particularly well informed conversation with John, Xenia’s fiancé, on carry options for people under 21 (John is 19) and on college campuses.
[My response was that it was Xenia’s pick. I had nothing to do with either daughter’s choice in spouses. I occasionally wonder if it is my “boy blood for daughter’s tears” policy that causes them to suck up to me a little but I don’t see enough evidence to justify validating that hypothesis.–Joe]

  1. I occasionally wonder if it is my “boy blood for daughter’s tears” policy that causes them to suck up to me a little but I don’t see enough evidence to justify validating that hypothesis.

    Actually, I think it’s because you’re just a pretty easy going and cool guy. The exploding toilet thing is totally unrelated to being cool… but definitely helps.

  2. “but I don’t see enough evidence to justify validating that hypothesis.”

    Presumably that means you’ve not yet had to spill this particular boy’s blood. Reminds me of my professor Kenneth Waltz’ Theory of International Politics: the existence of nuclear weapons regulates states’ behavior such that they need not be used.
