Howard County High School graffiti a sign of deeper issues

   Apparently underlining our liberal well educated community are individuals who are feeling the need to show that racism and hatred exist in all communities--even ours.  For every action there is a reaction.  For all the social progress we have made in racial relations (i.e. electing our first African American President) and the acceptance of the validity of different sexual orientation there will be those insecure persons that feel threatened by those changes.  Make no mistake it is insecurity that causes people to have prejudice against groups to which they don't belong.  When you add a person like Trump (and many Republicans i.e. Steve King) who uses coded language that appeals to a person's prejudices it is no surprise that this type of behavior is on the increase.

Alien circles on Lake Elkhorn???

    I have had a couple of readers of yesterday's blog post ask what caused the unusual circles on the ice photo at Lake Elkhorn.  I wondered that when I took the photo.  Anyone have a guess?
