Wow. First Hillary Clinton, now Jerry Brown.
Yes, California's own Jerry Brown - a.k.a. Gov. Moonbeam - says he once went duck hunting with the late Chief Justice Earl Warren. He made this announcement on Facebook, where he has apparently succumbed to the tyranny of the "25 Random Things" meme. (Yes, folks, I am a meme hater.)
The L.A. Times did a piece about the Facebook post today - click here to see the Times piece. And for your weird coincidence of the day, the photo the Times used for the story was snapped by my friend Bob, whom I mentioned Thursday as being the guy who tipped me off to the Swamp Witches story.
So here's what Brown said:
13. I’ve been duck hunting with Chief Justice Warren, but not with Vice President Cheney.
There's really not much more to it than that ... except for item No. 11:
11. I am a part owner of a ranch in Colusa County. It belonged to my Great-grandfather.
For those not lucky enough to live in NorCal, I can tell you that Colusa County is totally sweet duck hunting country. If I had a ranch there, I would never, ever go to work during duck season.
So there's your fun fact of the day.
