My dad and I never really got along when I was younger, but he always introduced me to books I inevitably loved.
We’ve exchanged books of Charles Bukowski’s poetry every now and then. He underlined lines he found particularly poignant, that he liked, that he thought I should read.
He just gave me more Bukowski to read, along with Kerouac and Ginsberg. It’s like beatnik Christmas.
Oh, and now we get along so well it’s scary.
I’m sitting here cracking up. Yes, liberals do exist in Wyoming, but we’re definitely the minority. However, many seem to leave after a certain amount of time, or move to Jackson, which is essentially a colony of California. Jackson does boast Dick Cheney as a resident, explaining why the other Wyomingites have not forced Teton County to secede.
Frontier Days before an election is weird… you have every political candidate trying to prove their conservative street cred, whether they’re running on the Democratic or Republican ticket.
I have successfully avoided Frontier Days since I moved here in 2003. I went downtown in 2005 and found too many cowboys with an attitude problem and liquid courage in their veins - It’s just not my thing.
Thanks for the compliments! I appreciate it, and it’s folks like you that keep this up and running!
And your reasoning behind believing this site and its owner fall into the category of disgrace?
I will, though, give you props for using your user name instead of hiding behind the anon function. I honestly don’t care if you think I’m a disgrace, because there’s several other folks who think I’m the bee’s knees.
Cheers! Phil Bridges/Heroes of Newerth will see you off.
Why thank you. I feel like it’s useless to get enraged over the majority of those debates. It’s like WASP whack-a-mole - one more will always pop up, no matter how hard you swing the hammer.
