Yeah, I wouldn't want to drop 80 on that either. They should have made it clear up front that there is a limit.

Sub,
I like pontoon boats puttin' around the lake close to shore every evening during the summer at sunset.
They remind me of a time gone by. A lost innocence.
We used to go to a place in Minnesota called Lake Lizzy when I was knee-high to a grasshopper.
Those are some of my earliest memories....
I like being out on the water too. We sometimes go out after I get home from work for an evening swim.

Are you guys talking about a catch limit or a Keep limit? I am not aware of a limit on how many fish you can catch vs how many you can keep.
Also, Tonka is talking about a drift boat fishing, which is really pretty fun if you pack some sandwitches and beer. If you get the chance, go for a night expedition, the ocean is beautiful at night.
Usually the captian is going for a specific species of fish, and in that case a catch (or keep) limit is justified. If you have 60 people on a boat thats 600 fish (of a single species) so yeah, limits are needed. But if you catch and release everything, I dont believe they are going to stop baiting your hook after your 10th catch.
It's all about not abusing the system.
As for the pier fishing, I honestly dont know. The fish caught is so varied because you are in one place and the fish move past you. Even if a school fo fish run into the pier, it is unlikely you will be able to catch 10 yourself before they move on. Nobody checks your cooler, so I guess you could though.

We are talking keep limit.

Now that I have had time ocalm down and think about yesterday's embarrassent, my conclusion is that the loal undercover cop was the one who was driving like a bat out of hell, not me.
She pulled a you turn an came after me like there was no tomorrow.
I'll pay their fine and remember a valuable lesson.

Wow. That's a big statement. Can't wait to hear the backlash on this one. There will probably be people very annoyed that it doesn't go far enough (as in that the church should embrace gays and lesbians as children of god). Then there will be the group that is made at the pope for extending out any sort of olive branch.

That was an illegal U-Turn that wench made.
She did not turn on her emergency lights until she was at my neighbors house, but I saw her closing in fast on me.
Screw them. I will bide my time.

Agree. I am amazed -- baby steps is all you can hope for, really.

I am ready for the aftermath is all. You know there will be some.

I like how open he is and how welcoming he is. That has been missing from the Catholic Church for a very long time.

From the interview -- it's a quote from the Pope in the first paragraph:

“A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality,” he told Father Spadaro.“I replied with another question:‘Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?’ We must always consider the person.”

The interview also serves to present the pope as a human being, who loves Mozart and Dostoevsky and his grandmother, and whose favorite film is Fellini’s “La Strada.”

The 12,000-word interview ranges widely, and may confirm what many Catholics already suspected: that the chameleon-like Francis bears little resemblance to those on the church’s theological or political right wing. He said some people had assumed he was an “ultraconservative” because of his reputation when he served as the superior of his Jesuit province in Argentina. He pointed out that he was made superior at the “crazy” young age of 36, and that his leadership style was too authoritarian.

“But I have never been a right-winger,” he said.“It was my authoritarian way of making decisions that created problems.”

As I said earlier, I live on a fairly busy 4-lane boulevard, but the speed limit is only 30.
It's a main thoroughfare on the East side of town, so the police use it as a main artery to get from point A to point B when they are responding to a call.
So yeah, they're whippin' by my house every day.
They really drive with the pedal to the metal, and not always with their lights on.
I know there are places they have to get to in a hurry-up fashion, but sometimes I worry about the innocent bystanders who get in their path.

The amount of litter that lands in my yard is truly disgusting too.
It's mostly cigarette butts and there's new garbage to be picked up every day.

And the men who chose him to be pope surely had to know he was like this. So it sounds like at least some of the guys running the show were ready for the church's attitude to be changed somewhat.
