I spent some time with Adrian Smith at a tailgate prior to the Mich St game last year. We were wearing Team Jack t-shirts at the game and the Congressman was very positive about Jack even then.
"One of the few things I know...is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for [later]; give it all, give it now.... Something more will arise for later.... Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes."--Annie Dillard
