I didn't know Luke in any other setting than Burnham's, back in the day when my sweetie and I would plan a quick stop for something for her sailboat, and end up solving world problems up at the counter and wondering where the time went. It would be hard to catalog what all we talked about, but one of our favorite lines from Luke was: "You don't have to be a smart person. Just do what a smart person would do."
