… yes someday I will … in the interim it is fun watching others do it like this Ringneck drake that I jumped at the ponds this afternoon, or like looking at that beautiful new California Highway Patrol plane that my friend Rich flew into Sedona this afternoon; the half way point in the flight from Colorado back to California taking the southern route. A truly beautiful ship and the second in the fleet of this new class of ships being added as older planes are retired.

The statement was basically a highly contrived rationalization for not prosecuting Burns for being a lobbyist for companies regulated by the ACC while Burns was both an ACC candidate and office holder, which is against the law.
