    And this capable chief of staff is now a motorcycle mama for a Hell’s Angle…

    EDIT: ANGEL… oops, eh-heh

    no, no, no… that’s MIKE’s mother. Joanie is JJ’s mom, Rick Redfern’s wife and a D.C. attorney.

    It is. He and JJ were married, until she dumped him. The Grammy she’s talking to is JJ’s mom.

    Lynn - Mike is Alex’s dad, and JJ is her mom. JJ and Mike split up several years back.

    Susan, you’re probably right, but there’s an old Chinese aphorism… “A man who is thirty and has achieved nothing is still young and may amount to something in the end. A man who is forty and has achieved nothing is no longer young, but may still be successful. A man who is fifty and has achieved nothing may be disregarded without consequence.”

    JJ and Jeff still have time to turn around (and, after all, JJ is a successful artist, even if her taste in men really bites). Even if they don’t, it’s not necessarily their parents’ fault, is it?

    Thanks – I’ve been following this since the ‘70’s, and sometimes it makes my head spin!

    Zeke Brenner = “Uncle Stupidhead”. I still laugh at that one.

    Susan001 - That’s right, I remembered that Joanie spent some time as a single mom but I’d forgotten that she didn’t have custody of JJ after a divorce and while she was in law school.

    Are they Hell’s acute, obtuse, or right Angles? I can never remember.

    given that they’re still mostly doing drugs and riding the freeways without helmets, I’d say they’re pretty obtuse.
