Clete McGovern died early Thursday morning. In a past life, well, a few past lives ago, he was my father-in-law, and he was also Director of St. Lawrence Band. He played saxophone, and helped me switch from clarinet to alto sax, his politics were so far to the right that we went full circle and agreed on many things, but most importantly, he taught me how to argue! I think of him regularly as I take on corporations bigger than Dog!

Thanks to Earl for the photo of Clete, above, stolen from St. Lawrence Band Reunion site. Paul, if you’re out there, do you have any classic B&W photos of him from way back that I could post?
