One of the occupational hazards of being a working cowboy is that all of those headfirst falls off of presumably gentle horses could affect a person's memory.
So it may be that The Times has had a policy of printing unprovoked personal attacks on its editorial pages, but I cannot recall that it had ever engaged in that practice until I read Letters to The Editor (March 31) and the letter from Julie Brinkerhoff-Edwards questioning what I have done for Orange County.
It is also difficult for me to remember as a volunteer in local community affairs over the last 25 years what little part I may have played by participating in causes that I considered to be of consequence to me and my fellow citizens.
But I do recall quite clearly that I was one of a group of dedicated and wonderful individuals who banded together last spring and succeeded in defeating Proposition A, thus saving Orange County taxpayers over $3.5 billion.
As for what have I done lately? Wait and see.
