My eight regular readers have noticed that while I was “on vacation” in Florida I did precious little blogging. Its not that I didn’t want to. The laptop I’d planned to take with me had a worm. The hotels I stayed at didn’t have business centers and I refused to look for a computer while my family was awake. One night at Disney World where I was sure I would find a computer I had to travel by bus for fifty minutes to get to a business center in a “nearby” hotel. I didn’t get back to my hotel until 1 AM.
I knew big things were happening because the Press reported on our recent success at fundraising and the School Board panicked and announced the premature closing of schools like Ordean. Actually I announced it on this blog and the Trib’s education reporter confirmed it. No, I’m sorry. The closing is taking place because the State didn’t give the District enough money. Dr. Dixon must think he can sell be sell us another bridge.
I kept up with Duluth by trading emails but that was about all I had time for. I didn’t get to read the Trib daily but had to read all the back issues when I returned. That used to take me a solid day and a half but with today’s Trib it only took a pathetic hour-and-a-half to go through ten papers. Sheesh! It was a bash Let Duluth Vote week. Most of those stories are no longer on line for me to link to but I’ll make a few comments in later posts about some of them.
I’ve been spending so much time working on Let Duluth Vote’s request for legal services as well as the chores that pile up after a short trip that the old blog is desperate for some fresh info. I’ll see what I can do about that.
