Walkin'

“I’ll Keep My Guns, Freedom And Money . . . You Can Keep The ‘Change,’” read a bumper sticker on a car I spotted in front of the grocery store recently.

Republicans have no lock on values, but are very strong on greed.

Hawks give preview of coming season

I was jacked up for some Hawkeye football last Saturday.
I filled my cooler with food and liquids and headed into Kinnick about 9 a.m. for the 11 a.m. practice.
Of course I wasn’t the first one there but I found a great parking spot outside the stadium.
The lot starting filling up around 10 a.m. and then a line formed in front of the gates about 10:30 a.m.
I went in a little after 11 a.m. and the sun was baking down on the new prescription turf.
