When the author pinned the words to the song “Tall Oak Tree” it is for certain he had not seen the Sequoia trees in the Sequoia National Park. Now my editorial is not about the Sequoia trees even though they are majestic and beautiful enough to talk about forever.

Last week I attended a Cal-Pac Conference in Las Vegas. Cal-Pac is the trade organization of Black beverage, liquor store, and tavern owners as well as other representatives of the beverage and spirits industry.

The year was 1972 when I got involved in a local recall election against a city councilman. I was not a part of the recall committee but became a candidate when approached by the recall committee. He was being recalled for malfeasance of duty (illegal acts committed by a public official). What happens during these public hangings is no one really tells you the illegal act the person actually committed.
