I’ll take a breathe of air from thinking about #ONE Trump (reminder – #ONE stands for “our national embarrassment” ) which is becoming more worrisome on a daily basis as he continues to pound drums and rattle sabers instead of just letting the grownups do their jobs to enable us to continue living in a relativeiy safe world.
So, here is something I have noticed that has become bothersome, the new vehicles are being advertised, the 2018 models, the ones that are safer, smarter, like they know how to stop and not hit an old RV that has stopped on a curve to let a deer cross. The new vehicles are all being driven in a reckless, illegal manner, breaking speed limits, passing cars on safely, having a party in the car and apparently unaware of any responsibility to abiding with rules of the road. It makes me not want to purchase any vehicle that advertises that kind of careless, reckless, insensitive behavior in the drivers seat. So what is going on… why are we getting so dumb about everything? Ok, end of that rant for now. By the way, if the RV was not there, which I imagine stopped in the old fashioned way, an alert driver, driving at a safe speed on a winding country road who knew to step on his brakes…. the deer would be toast, the new brainy car would not have been able to brake in time for a deer jumping in front of it and….. the car would be toast or at the least need it’s first body shop visit.
So we have Be Encouraged, Carrie’s Corner, Board of Supes has to be listened too, good news is we will try to help the homeless and we will hire a Tobacco Coordinator paid for by the cigarette tax. Less people smoking will be a good thing. Don Russell is still missing from the Mountain Messenger, Freddy is looking for him… maybe… but Patrick Hiller, Lawrence Wittner, Mel Gurtov, Kevin Martin and Robert Koehler write illuminating copy this week, food for our thought, we mustn’t go to sleep.
The photo this week was taken by Mark Fisher of Eureka Lake in walking distance from the Lost Sierra Hoedown this weekend in Johnsville, if you haven’t been before don’t miss out, good music, great people, make friends and enjoy life in a great family atmosphere. Dress warm in layers.
