New Yorker

Quite an interesting, somewhat sad little article about Donald Rumsfeld. I keep thinking of Robert McNamara.

Bernie

Before I wrote tonight's column, I decided to call Rep. Bernie Lieder, who recently won another term as the Crookston area's representative in the Minnesota House. Bernie was in the Battle of the Bulge, so I had some questions for him.

Veteran's Day

Last night, we had a spaghetti supper at the American Legion in Fertile to raise funds for the Fertile Veteran's Memorial Plaza. Brother Joe and I played music during the supper.

The supper was well-attended, and over $2000 was raised for the project.

We hauled in all of Joe's sound equipment for the music, including a Roland keyboard he recently purchased from sister Tracie. When hooked up to the sound system, the keyboard really added a lot to the music.
