  • Brian,

    As I read your post from a coffee house in Oregon it brought some lightness and humor to my day. It brought me back to my days's of growing up in NW Kansas and as I read your post I envisioned I was going down a dirt road in a old pickup truck with corn and wheat covering the floorboard and an old buddy telling "rural" humor and sharing "rural" wisdom. We might have had a cold one between our legs and a swisher sweet cigar hanging from the side of our mouths also as we drove to Trenton to drown a few worms.

    I have posted periodically on the "political" side of the Daily Gazette and after attempting to bring civil discourse to the subject matter (I was not successful) have decided to seek out more fun and lighthearted blogs. Keep you balance and sense of humor. Thank you.

    Hey Kurt - we can't all be peacemakers bro.

  • I know Sam...it's just that my ability to engage in confrontational discourse sometimes wanes if I sense that the divide is getting bigger rather than smaller. I usually have to sit on the sidelines for awhile and gather my strength before making a comeback. In the meantime I am going to keep smiling and consider myself lucky to live in a country that allows us to engage in "spirited" debate.
