Here’s my classmate, Ermie. Ermie made the news this week when he took a bullet during a shoot-out in Honolulu. Ermie used to play tuba in our band and now he’s a cop. A cool guy when he was at Kaimuki High School I didn’t know he had joined the force. When I saw the name I knew it had to be the same Ermie that I went to school with, how many can there be? Best wishes to Ermie and hope he recovers quickly.
