Long time ago, when we were fab, we ran into Dave Coonrod at an SMS Vet's Club Pig Roast. Despite the events that transpired that eve, Coonrod is now a Greene County commissioner, and in that position he wields influence and power.
And now, he drives a Harley.
"American-made," Coonrod is quick to point out, noting in the next breath that his machine is just like the one ridden by Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Terminator II" -- ominous, black, with saddle bags big enough to hold mortar rounds and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Or precious county documents. You decide.
We are happy to note that Coonrod wears a helmet when tooling about the Ozarks -- happy not only because it's the law, but because Dave Coonrod rivals us for the title of King of the Wild Hair.
