During this years AWFS show in Las Vegas I was able to drag myself away from the candy store of cutting edge (pardon the pun) machinery to go listen to John Ratzenberger (AKA Cliff Clavin from Cheers).
As a journeyman carpenter, John helped to build the stage at Woodstock.
I love the way John puts a point across. Here are some of them...
"It wasn't theorists that built civilization, it was people with tools"
"Before we give the kids degrees in college, we should require them to go into the parking lot and change the car tire, and if they can't do that then, why are we giving them degrees"
"Before we swear in elected officials, from the president to dog catcher and assembly men, they should be required to assemble a coffee table from IKEA - Because, if you can't do that, then how dare you pass the laws that affect me and my family"
