The boy ran through the forest, jumping over the large tree roots.

With each step, he had to watch that he didn’t crack his head on an overhanging branch.

The boy was nimble, so he didn’t have a misstep and he made running a fast exercise.

The trail was worn, so that helped him.

Finally, he had to stop to catch his breath. He bent forward at the waist and placed his hands on his knees and spent several minutes gulping air.

He walked…

Not long ago I wish I'd have kept the citation for this. Republicans used to believe in a college education.

Within span of t years that spun to almost nothing.

Why the image of festive holiday lights when we are talking about BLOOD MONEY and BLOOD DIAMONDS?

First, to brag about Duluth MN, and Lake Superior.

Second, a special sneak preview of “THE VIETNAM WAR” The epics PBS Documentary Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick premiered on Sunday, September 10th at the Duluth Depot prior to its Nationwide Debut on September 17, 2017.


The theme for Today! Why…

Darryl, I would include reading.

The best college class I took was speed reading. I had always been a voracious reader.

Regretfully, (regretably?) I didn't pass that on to my pass as a hardf and fast "LEARN THIS"

Mike Pence & Jan 6, 2021


Have you been watching the Insurrection hearings?

I have been catching a few minutes here and there.

I have believed that Trump was guilty since I saw the video on that day.

Today the gross incompetence of our senators. The real heroes are the police and troops. Some gave an eye, some broken bones but all gave everything and stood up to the angry mob. The only one I saw that maintained his composure (and I am sure there are others) was Senator Mitt Romney.

Mr. Toomey must have a short memory. If my memory doesn’t fail me I recall Tumplicans giving already wealthy corporations and citizens $1.5 trillion just about a year ago.
