A quarter century ago today...
On August 21, 1982, I was going down the aisle with Frances, who died in 2003. If you'd like to see what Wayne LaPierre (my best man) looked like 25 years ago, check out the wedding pics, here. Her memorial page is here.
NRA memories: Neal Knox had been fired as head of ILA a few months before (in May, I think, right after the annual meeting). Harlon Carter (who's also in the wedding photos) was EVP. Jim Featherstone (now deceased) had been replaced by a new General Counsel, Mike McCabe (also now deceased). Wayne was head of Federal Affairs; the new (and disasterous) head of ILA was Warren Cassidy.
