I started the show making sure my point from the last show about repealing the 2nd Amendment. I tried to make it clear that was not my position.

So, for more than 50 years lumber sizing has not been exactly 2″ x 4″ or 4″ x 4″. Those are “nominal” (name only) sizing. The actual size is a bit smaller.

Pedantic Moment: Regan Should Have Died
My last topic of the show showed just how frustrating being an artist can be.

Twice?!
