If you can't tune in at 5:30 you can miss some cool stuff on the Muser show.
This morning, Craig was reporting on his viewing of Ken Burns's documentary on The Dust Bowl, the climatological disaster that overtook portions of Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, and Kansas in the 1930s. The drought affected other states as well, but the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles got the worst of it.
As it happened, Mrs. Plainsman and I also saw the show.
As we watched it, Mrs. P and I remarked on how good we have it these days. It did indeed remind me to be thankful for what I have.
And, as that holiday approaches, I am thankful for all of you supporters and readers, yes, including – perhaps especially – those of you calling for my abandonment of this site for one or another P1 litmus-test failure (see comments two posts back). I really do appreciate the time each one of you takes to read the site, and to give the blogosphere your usually well-considered thoughts on The Ticket.
Have a wonderful holiday, and please drive with care and otherwise conduct yourselves in a civilized fashion. I don't want to lose any more readers.
