This is one of those catchall posts. Tomorrow happens to be the 90th Anniversary of Eddie Bauer and his down-filled jackets, etc. Our son works part-time at the Rapid City store and noted they were expecting crowds tomorrow because of the store-wide 30% discounts.
Eddie Bauer stuff is a bit rich for me unless it is on sale. And it is on sale tomorrow February 27, 2010 , so if you are interested in some good quality clothing, tomorrow may be your day.
We have been without KELOLAND TV for a few weeks and just to keep their egos fully inflated, we miss their news and weather programs. KSFY is tolerable, but their news seems to be filled with fluff and crime and never-ending hype for the wonders of their news and weather while you are watching their news and weather ...which seems really, really silly. They need a wheel of Silly, but that would be really silly ...almost as silly as having a lot of hype for a snow shovel as if they are giving away a new car every week with the trunk filled with gold coins. Call 911 if you get heart pains from the surprise of winning one of their snow shovels.
Anyway, the news in a recent Mitchell Daily Republic was that KELOLAND was working on a temporary tower for the Reliance area which might be broadcasting in a week or so. Hope we can get their "temporary signal". The other news about that was that the local Native American tribal president has decided that the KPLO tower is on a "sacred hill or ring of buttes". For some reason that all reminded me of a political campaign I was involved with about 40 years ago. The candidate for Congress (now deceased) had just made his announcement to run when a Native American reservation politician announced he was going to run...I don't remember if as a Democrat in an otherwise unnecessary primary or if he was going to run as an independent in the general election...anyway...he did let it be known that if he got some "contributions", he might announce that because of family reasons or some such, he might drop out of the race.
Maybe KELO should hire a wise old Native American to bless the new tower as a really big totem and make some "contributions". I would guess the sacredness of the dirt pile would be rapidly diminished.
Sacred rocks sends a hell of a message to Native American children who might be interested in working toward degrees in science or engineering. Of course, White fundamentalists want God in the classroom as an intelligent designer to fight evil evolution and while they are at it, the idea that humans dumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere might alter the climate...Of course that might also have something to do with Al Gore being both outspoken on climate issues AND horror of horrors, a Democrat too. They don't want to see the dinosaur in the living room.
It is hard enough keeping up with what might be facts without all the humbug spread around this state.by self-serving or remarkably deluded people.
