Hi again

Hello again:
The one picture here is the crowd at the parade last Saturday. This is before the parade started. It is a small town parade, with candy thrown out by the parade participants. The other picture is from the local fireworks, one of my better pictures.
I am reading Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free by Charlie Pierce. You can often hear Charlie on Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me on NPR every Saturday at 11:00 am. You can hear NPR locally here at 91.5 FM or 550 AM.
In the book he recites plenty of examples of stupid people, starting with W. The first story is about the Creation Museum where he shows the operator there that Noah had two dinosaurs on the ark. Talk about stupid, but so many believe the world is only 6,000 years old. That is the stupidest comment I have ever heard. Dinosaurs left us 75 million years ago after having lived on earth for 125 million years. We humans have only been here about 3,000,000 years.
Get this book from your local library to see all of the other examples of idiots in America.
I do hope you all have a good weekend coming up.
