These are cool stories, much better than mine. I have shaken a few GA hands, but that is about it. My closest encounter was an interview with a Seventy when I applied for a job at BYU. That was memorable.

I dropped into the local chapel for the first session of general conference and manifested my opposition. Philosophical question: if an opposing vote is made in an empty chapel and no one is around to see it, is it recorded in Salt Lake City? Good on you, brother. Much respect. - Doc Thank you. In ...
