Btw... I asked my buddy Brian who lived/worked at Windermere at the same time as Da Bum about him. His response? "Don't ever mention his name again." LOL

Yeah that was probably the worst thing he could have possibly said unless it's followed by a 20 minute diatribe about the misguided adventures of said Bum.

You were close, but it was ~15 minutes of the craziest/dumbest/annoying/etc people he had to deal with during his time there. He wouldn't go more into Da Bum at that time. I'll ask him again next time I see him.
