I met George Hope on the side of SR-14 on my way to the studio this morning. I’m not in the habit of picking up hitchhikers but an older man with a walking stick and veterans cap seemed worth the risk. He’s 92 years old, born in Alabama and a veteran of WWII and Korea. Said the cab company told him it would take two hours to give him a ride to the VA Hospital so he decided to hitch a ride. True grit.
