Re: Hobbies besides Golf?Two other items:
1. I do work out on a regular basis, and have a personal trainer, who is located at our local YMCA. We concentrate on specific exercises to develop strength and flexibility in core muscles and those muscles that are important in golf. We have many golfers in our area, and he decided that he needed to become an expert in that area.
2. Reading books in history, business and government. I majored in government, and took many courses in economics, business, and history. The two most recent books that I have read are "1776" by David McCullough and "Team of Rivals" by one of my college instructors, Doris Kearns Goodwin. Obviously, many people are reading the latter because Barack Obama is following the same philosophy that Lincoln did when he appointed Seward, Bates, Chase, and Stanton to his cabinet. He was NOT afraid to appoint former political opponents to key positions in the cabinet. It takes a REAL LEADER to do that. In this day and age, political and business leaders seem to like to have cabinets or Boards that are submissive, rather than contentious. We LACK FOR REAL LEADERS in this country in business and government. Where have all THE REAL LEADERS gone? I will end my comments here since I have posted some in the "Grill Room" on this website.
