Steroids and the major league hearings are way down my list of things to worry about. I also find the current Presidential race boring in light of things that I believe are really important.
We are spending over $487 billion dollars to fund the war in Iraq and $3.5 billion for Nebraska alone. Over 4,000 (US troops) killed and 60,000 wounded. We really didn't learn much from the small ground war in the 60's.
The economy is on pace to flow quickly into a recession and the market has dropped like grandma's socks. All of a sudden the Commander in Chief is concerned and now wants to produce a stimulus package...when will we get our $1600?
I see that Nebraska is concerned about the penalties in place for pot. Seems they lightened them up in 1978, 9 years to late if you ask me. Now they want to stiffen them up in order to stem the tide of young users and even them out with alcohol.
Comanche Moon and the prior blog about the Keystone had me searching the Internet for Stu Grant. I think I found his picture, some of us age better than others. I ate venison at Stu's place in McCook on one warm summer night in 67 or was it 68? He had brought it down with a bow and arrow, a real Indian. Legend has it he once kicked a 60 yd field goal.
I don't want to go back, but it was fun.
Concerts with Bruce and then Santana on the horizon. John Stewart died today, what will become of the Kingston trio reunions? Sneaky Pete died last year.
