Easy five. Busy and feeling a little achy. Got a thing at school tonight so that will probably be it.

Renowned Lincoln and Civil War Era scholar Matthew Pinsker will be visiting us this weekend at Alta High. We'll have a program (3 lectures) in our auditorium at 8 am tomorrow morning. Tickets are $5.00 at the door. It's open to the public.

Dr. Pinsker has his BA from Harvard and his PhD from Oxford (it's this little school in England).

The three lecture topics are...

The Underground Railroad and Resistance to Slavery

Emancipation and War Powers

Manifest Destiny and the Civil War

If you came, I'd let you in free to help offset the price of your gas.

Only until the new gas tax sets in! Who put all these "fiscally responsible" Republicans in power?
