Following @kelito 's lead. 11 things I think...

1. It is imperative that people involve themselves in politics or the system is used for graft and corruption.
2. Every hour I spend involved in politics is wasted.
3. Only a fraction of a fraction of people will speak up for what they believe in if there is personal risk. They must be supported and protected. Being brave enough to speak up "shares the risk" and protects free speech. (Share the risk isn't my original thought.)

About to shoot and it’s already...

My parents were railway clerks. They each worked for the old Missouri Pacific for over 40 years. They met in the Kingsville Division office in 1929 and were married the Sunday before Black Monday. They always felt a little guilty about that, thinking that maybe they had caused the Great Depression.

Anyway, they travelled together and with the family all over the USA, always on trains. I went with them to Lafayette, Louisiana, my father's hometown, many times. To Chicago several times to see about my brother. To Austin, of course, to visit my rich Aunt Bina in hopes of an inheritance that never came. And to Houston to visit my Aunt Tine, who is a whole nother story. We also went up into Colorado once, but we were broke and didn't ski.

The trip of a lifetime, though, was from our South Texas border home to San ...
