    I've heard that song, Jerry Garcia doing vocals? I can go online and hit play on te computer and one site will play hours of free GD songs/videos.

    Hey, another good album is ACE, by Bob Weir.

    Oh, wow, "concerts I've been to" could be a fun thread on its own. For me, put: Dead, Hendrix, Joplin, Dire Straits (2), Dylan (5), Stones (4), Clapton (many), Zepplin, The Band (2). Makes me tired just remembering. Whew.

    In another thread, someone mentioned a "shoot me first" shirt or hat. I think I've heard the term before but don't know what it means.

    Does it refer to someone wearing gang colors or other gang clothes in gang-rife neighborhoods? Or what? Thanks...

    It is any shirt or hat bearing insignia that would infer you have a better than average ability to defend yourself in a gunplay situation. This may include Pro-2A shirts, NRA apparel, LEO type stuff and military things.

    For this, and other reasons, I do not wear shirts in public that bring to the attention of others overtly that I am a LEO. Put the sheepdog in sheep's clothing and the wolf will never see it coming.

    Sometimes it does not matter how a LEO is dressed, everyone can tell that person is a LEO.
