I have been busy with my day job.
But I am glad to know Willie Gandara is free.
I hope he makes a comeback.
Yes, he sold copious amounts of weed, but liquor distributors and manufacturers of opioids are far worse in my book.
Do not get me wrong.
Weed is not my herb of choice.
Fernet Branca is.
But that being said, what rubbed most people wrong about Willie is what I think is most awesome about him - a Lower Valley family that made money off of something far from glamorous, but money they made nonetheless.
I just hope Willie does not go about apologizing for selling something that Susie Byrd, County Judge Veronica Escobar , and our next U.S. Senator, Beto O'Rourke, believe should be sold on demand and without apology.
