    I have known Joe for many years. He is a solid guy but for the life of me I have no idea why he would pretend to be John Mills.

      Do you know him?

      He is a solid guy. In a tough spot? Sure. Bad at his job? Yeah I will give you that. Made some stupid decisions (like lying about being John Mills)? No doubt.

      I think most people would fall into at least one of those categories. He is a solid guy. Not a saint. Not a role model. Not my best friend but solid.

      Being flawed does not make him a bad person.

    Seems to me he retired along time ago, just now making it public.

    Social media. Kick a guy when he’s down. Pathetic. Maybe some of you should step into his shoes before dragging him through the mud. That thought ever cross your minds? I learned this lesson long ago and will not make the same mistake again if I can help it. There are always two sides to every story. Always.
