I've been running around California recently but I haven't been very good about blogging. So let me catch up...
Sunday night I was in Fresno and I stopped by the Silver Dollar Hofbrau for dinner. Sadly, I thought the food was pretty mediocre and wouldn't find much to remember about the place.
But then as I was leaving I stumbled across a large display case with photos of the owner and prominent Republican politicians -- Reagan, Bush, Deukmejian and even a few celebrities, like Bob Hope.
Looking at the photos I occurred to me I recognized the owner. It was Truman Campbell. Knock me over with a feather. Campbell was chairman of the California Republican Party in the mid-80s. I had no idea he had a restaurant.
