From the miscellaneous drawer - Speak up

It’s a strange and ever changing world we live in. And the perception of a polite society may evolve to the appearance of a more dignified plane and then may loop-de-loop, crash and recover long afterwards.
In the first half of the nineteenth century, famines and wars perhaps dictated some short cuts and verbal shortness, impatience to get the job done, and to survive.
Women and children took on new roles, moving too rapidly into adult jobs and responsibilities and the reality of the times. Too often unprepared for brusqueness and brutality, verbal or otherwise.
Some of that hasn’t changed. People in power due to money or position, declared new rights, not as human beings, but as bullies. We still see that today as recognition of the inhumaneness affects us and the news.

A Picture Worth a Thousand Words:

A Picture Worth a Thousand Words: Much has been written lately about how sulfate discharges from mines may stunt wild rice growth. Here is a photo of wild rice on Birch Lake (Dunka Bay) “stunted” by sulfate discharges in the Dunka River from the Dunka and Northshore mines.
