    Maine is full of alcoholics and druggies. It’s a trashy state with judges who have very little backbone.  This judge should be commended for giving at least some time to the criminal.  If this had been a Kennebec County judge, the guy would have already been on his second or third DUI.

      “operating under a conditional license that he not have any alcohol in his system while driving.” Was certainly not his first brush with an alcohol related incident.

    The speed limit on Park Loop Road varies. Only short stretches are 25 mph.

    I wonder if he drinks because he suffers from some kind of arrested developement. Most guys his age, with his repertoire, are playing strats with 50 amp amplifiers– shoot’in up the hard stuff– or in rehab. Maybe this will be a boost for his career. Better late then never.

       Not a Strat-n-a-hat type.  John spent many years studying classical music at Berklee, and his performance style reflects that.

        Glad to here that, Berklee turns out some fine fusion musicians. I will make an effort to see him this winter….Thanks for the tip.
