4) Finally, in summation, to paraphrase the Goldwater campaign (Goldwater? Who's that? Bring your grandfather some daisies and ask him)

Republican Presidential Candidate in 1964 who ran against Lyndon Baines Johnson, and lost in one of the largest landslides in American presidential history. Barry S. Goldwater was his name.

I will leave the rest of it for others to reply to.

Here's to learning something new everyday, and remembering it the next.

I should know better than to mess with those people from Arizona.

I'm surprised no one seems to have caught the "daisies" comment.

LBJ ran a commercial on TV against Goldwater that showed a young girl pulling petals off a daisy, the sound faded to a man's voice counting down from 10 while zooming in on the little girl's eye. When the mans count got to zero a reflection in the girl's eye showed an atomic bomb mushroom cloud. Many people though the commercial was gutter politics but many also thought the commercial elected LBJ as President. I'm a liberal but I still respect Sen Goldwater as a conservative honorable man.

Oh yes, Barry Goldwater was conservative but was also a pragmatic politician. He served Arizona well as it's Senator and as a photographer. He captured many stunning images of Arizona with his tripod mounted Hasselblad.
