  • Cheers old friend! He may have never been a season ticket holder but he most certainly now boasts the best seat in the house. See you down the road and you had better have a nice jug of Kick-a-Poo waiting for me!

  • Always think of Les in some way when I come on here, be it my sig or something someone writes. He was taken way to soon and I say that selfishly as well as the for the Forum .

    Happy Birthday and or remembrance day, may God be watching over your family with you.

  • I am just so damn glad he got to see the Seahawks win the Super Bowl before he passed. A blessing to say the least. (Ironic the magazine he is holding says "Hawk Heaven").

    No question. His genuine care and concern for everyone is a rarity.

  • When I was living in Alaska, I would go to Spokane to visit my parents and Les always had time for lunch. I miss those chats with him about our beloved Hawks. Happy Birdy Day my friend.

    Well, thank you, oh pumkin master. I remember Les visiting you one time. I'm sure we all have Radish stories.

    I first met Les while attending the last training camp at Cheney. TechWorld (Dom) and I went over to his place the night before his BBQ. We had burgers and such with Les and Darlene. We came from such different political/social places it was almost funny.

    One of the things I remember about Les & Darlene, as long as you were a Seahawks fan, you were welcome at there home. Many times I heard stories of .net members passing thru Spokane on the way to somewhere else, but would stop at Les' place for lunch, dinner, etc. He welcomed them all whether he personally liked them or not.

    He was a good man, and I miss him.

    Agreed. Never got the opportunity to meet him but definitely enjoyed the correspondence with him on .NET. A very genuine man indeed. :les:

  • A sad, sad day.
    Journalism is dead, it's been replaced by creative writing aka fake news.
    Critical thinking is pretty much dead too. I miss the hearsay rule.
    The concept of "ethic" has been stripped from the Journalism curriculum.
