An old high school buddy, who I haven’t seen since he got married thirty years ago, and I found each other on the Internet and began emailing each other in recent years. We keep talking about getting together again. He’s the fellow I reminisced about last January who sent me an erudite article on opium cultivation in Afghanistan. He’s retired to the D.C. area and I told him a month ago that Claudia and I were thinking of passing through this summer. I’m not so sure now. The damned School District has gone wacko and I don’t know if I dare leave Duluth this summer or fail to attend any School Board meetings. I may have to stay Duluth bound.
Anyway my buddy sent me this video and told me his daughter helped produce it for the New York Times. Its only eleven minutes long but it dampened my eyes.
