Whoops! I had this ready on Wednesday, but I never actually posted it… Way to go, me. After many weeks, hearts unsure and temples aching as you peruse the EKD blog in hopes of reading about the spine-tingling event that is the Brookings Festival of Books, the wait is finally over. That’s right! I finally … More South Dakota Festival of Books
Often, it’s been said “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” If two painters are equally talented, but one of them is friends with a local art salesman and the other is not, one is more likely to succeed than the other. Whether or not we want to believe in the adage, it proves … More Who You Know.

But, not all election years have had such high turn out rates, and such extremely polarized reactions. At least, not in the 23 years I’ve been alive, and the even fewer that … More Misadventures in Politics
