That's neat. What college did/does he teach at? If it's in DSM it's probably Drake or Grandview, but Iowa State is just 40 minutes away too.
Hmm.. I wonder if he is the guy who came into the store once and told me he bred Betta and chewed me out for pronouncing it wrong (I know how to properly pronounce it, I just chose not to.)
