OMG is that a masonic handshake!?LOL - no but I have someone here I know who has shaken my hand twice who does a weird finger curle thing and he has done it both times. I am wondering if it is either a JBS or Masonic signal or something. I am not a member of either.

Tell us about the breakfast. How many were there? Is Dr. Paul staying in a hotel or at a supporter's house? Did he have any words for everyone at the Breakfast?

Did he have any words for everyone at the Breakfast?There were a few hundred people at breakfast. Ron just showed up and started talking with people, doing pictures, shaking hands, etc. He did not address the entire crowd during breakfast.

I have no idea where he is staying and neither does anyone else to my knowledge.

Am I the only one who thinks Mr. Collins here looks like Penn Jillette (of the famous Penn and Teller duo)?

Anyway, I would have loved to have my picture taken with Ron; shame I couldn't make it :(

Out of curiosity, how tall are you? I've always wanted to know how tall Ron Paul is...but no one can give me a solid answer--if I know you're height, I'll be able to guesstimate.

Sorry...methinks it's the beard and glasses style....that and you're wearing a suit as well.[/quote]

Ok, well, I'm going to guess then that Ron Paul is about 5'8" to 5'10" if that truly is your height.

That seems about right, he seemed about as tall as me if not slightly shorter when I met him in January, and I am 5'10''.

Were you on the 5:25 A.M. plane from MSP to ATL today? If so, I'm pretty sure I talked to you briefly.

some people are really bad at heights too :-P

One lady that I know told me a friend of mine (who I have yet to meet in person) was "oh, around 6'."...when I spoke with him and directly asked him, he refuted that and said "No, I'm only 5'8"."
