So you like photos, eh?

The Week in Pictures…

As always, you can click on a photo to see a larger version. (Somehow Blogger makes my photos darker than they are. I wonder how and/or why that is… Oh well.)

A footbridge across a small pond in a park in Northwest Iowa.

Ida Grove, IA has an inordinate amount of castles and buildings with related architecture. This is, I believe, part of a warehouse.

The first drive-in I’ve been to in decades! Yummy! Downtown Mapleton, IA.

My wife doesn’t drink often. This is what half a mohito(?) did to her the other night…

Whilst sitting at a window table at Buffalo Alice’s, we were visited by an unexpected guest. He was on the wrong side of the window…

Again, while sitting by the window at Buffalo Alice’s, a wedding party walked by. We thought the handplay and facial expressions were interesting…

I got to play a little.

In Politics…

Iowa Republican congressman Steve King has again embarrassed himself. He seems to have stumbled upon, a website that keeps tabs on Mr. King. According to the Council Bluffs newspaper, Mr. King commented, “my assumption is this is trying to have some effect on [my] campaign.” source

Well, duh.

It’s interesting that Mr. King does NOT refute any of the facts put forth on All he complains about is that the website is written anonymously. That pretty much confirms the factuality of the website, doesn’t it?

I’m leaning heavily towards Joyce Schulte. She has a masters degree, not an easy accomplishment. Mr. King has no formal education. On that basis alone I believe Ms. Schulte gets the nod. In these days of trials and tribulations, we need someone with an education representing us.

Just my opinion.

    Joyce Schulte spent several hours at our Plymouth County Dems booth at the fair last Saturday. I like her. I hope she can get King to debate her a couple of times. That should swing things sharply her way. King is an embarassment. Watching him on C-Span, if you can stand it, is the best way to fully appreciate what a low opinion he has of his constituents. It’s clear his only sources of information are the Bush admin, Rush, Hannity and, of course, Faux News. He is frightening how out of touch he is.
