We enjoy watching the Oscars. Sometimes you hear and see “things” you don’t agree with but exposing yourself to the “arts”, different ideas and people from different lifestyles and backgrounds can give you a better understanding of the world we live in. Hopefully we can be smarter and wiser today than we were yesterday. My wife and I grew up in small midwestern towns and it wasn’t until later that we met people from different backgrounds, lifestyles and religions. It has been my experence that most people don’t want you to agree, rather, they want respect. “I don’t like that man, I must get to know him better.” Abraham Lincoln

Well stated...thanks!



Analogous to one of my favorite sayings.

I have met some awful people but most of those were people I was representing who were in prison at Minnesota Correctional Facility-- Stillwater or running for political office or in political office.

Abraham Lincoln though looks like he was one hell of a good man.
