    Forgot to ask, does he really think inmates are going to be better company than his wife? Someone needs to interview him on a talk show.

    Considering his age of 70 years old. I really wonder about his or his wife's mentality - question of dementia or alzheimer's disease for either of them......mostly HIM.
    Alzheimer's disease doesn't necessarily have to start of with obvious memory loss it can start of obviously with all sorts of disorders - this behaviour also.

    I agree Cubby it would have been very entertaining to have been there......
