Overheard On NPR

A guest host on "Fresh Air" is interviewing the author of a book on the Donner party.

Ignorance and arrogance can be a fatal combination.
It seems to be a combination deeply embedded in American culture.

*Incisively correct! I also heard this wonderful interview. However - correct your spelling in this post, yo, buddy!

:)

Take care.

Thanks. :)

it is not so much that i have forgotten how to spell as that as my vision dims it is harder to see what i have written; and i have always been a slow typist. The post i typed before this one contained twenty-five misspelled words and five words needed to make sense of a sentence were left out altogether. So, yeah, thanks for the reminder.

Right. There is no blame here. Just a note to clear it up cuz that's all we leave behind us. That's what we want to matter. Silly, I know.

Hey, man! Its good to hear from you! Your comment was totally unexpected. I thought you were another person with a similar handle (user name)

I still scan most of your posts (Jan thru May 2017 exempted) Many i read carefully and most of those i learn from or enjoy. There were a few that i wanted to comment on. If you could see your way to unban me, i would like that!

I have not forgotten about you because I do believe in you. I thought I unbanned you but I will check...

I don't mind you being a friend but I was just having a problem with always coming up against posts about religion or spirituality which i was not into. One day, i might be in to these but I am coming from a dif place right now. Right? take care, good guy.

Oh, I dreamed livin' in the land of slaves--
shut up, y'all! Don't make waves!

Look away, look away, look away, Dixieland.

There I'm White, male, with lots of riches--
other folks be diggin' ditches!

Look away, look away, look away, Dixieland.
