We don't need more of that; we need lower taxes and governments that listen." But Dave doesn't let the world which its outside of his control scare him. Instead, his personal phobias are much closer to home - or rather, in the garden. "Once, when I lived in Arizona, I went to take the garbage out and there was a rattlesnake behind the garbage can. It scared me so badly that I came back a killed it with a rock and a hockey stick. Later, I felt terrible; it wasn't the snake's fault." True, but if you saw a rattle snake and had a hockey stick to hand...
