Bright and sunny. Warm out there. I stepped out in my long johns and it seemed to me  warm enough to take them off for the first time this winter – yeah, yeah. And warm enough to take my semi-annual bath also.

Just kidding. About the bath.

Another teacher got busted for kiddy stuff. Yesterday. I’m not going to bother placing a link this time. It is getting tiresome. For me. The cops must be feeling the same.

One of the two men that were involved in shooting the Wichita State student was sentenced to 21 years and one month. The other is still in litigation.

Trump squabbles with the Pope. Now there’s an endless supply of jokes and serious business. I did note that the  Trump/Pope fun exceeded by orders of magnitude the Trump/dra-mama stuff.

When you get right down to it, that isn’t a good thing. One would think Trump/dra-mama should be more serious. But who can take dra-mama serious, I mean, considering all the serious business the guy has heaped on the country, what’s a fight with a pretender.

And we lost a champion of Constitutional proportions. It’s a sad thing. With this crisis however, we have the Pope (representing God), THE Court, representing secular law, and establishment (represented by dra-mama and the congress), and we (the folks) representing ourselves, trying to decide which way this country is to go for a time.

When you think of it, the manner in which this country was created, with religious ex=pats filling the land in the first place (regardless it was occupied, see also South America and Africa), we are faced with an awesome responsibility.

I hope we come down on the side of religious freedom, personal freedom and not on the secular government cradle to grave handouts.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
