I have always blamed John Wilkes Booth for the period known as the “Jim Crow” years. Had he not assassinated President Lincoln, I believe Lincoln would have filled out his term uniting the country and perhaps lived until 1900 as a senior statesman to which the country would listen for guidance. I can envision Lincoln – in later years – touring the former Confederate states and calling out the malfeasance that became known as Jim Crow.

    I fondly remember when the Left told me “Obama is our president.” I don’t hear these hypocrites saying this now about President Trump. As I have seen all my adult life, the Left imposes the rules and the protocols when it favors their objectives, not when they work against them.

    From weather to commodity prices, farmers take major risks every day. On top of this, they are at a major economic disadvantage. My first editorial in a Hillsboro paper on this subject, formed as a letter to the editor, was in 1968, where I pointed out that farmers buy retail (think of your local equipment dealer) and sell wholesale (commodity markets).

    ARPANET – the government got it right. Amtrak – still a waste of money after all these years.

    I remember the first time I heard I had cancer. It was Feb. 11, 2000. An oncologist called me at about 4 p.m. that Friday afternoon and said simply, “Your biopsy showed positive indications of lymphoma.” He set an appointment with me for the next week. Simple, direct and left me hanging.

    Zuckerberg’s latest vision is that his service, Facebook, will become our Little League teams and our church. Sorry, 10,000 Little League coaches and our Almighty God may have something to say about this. Not worried on this front.

    When wheat harvest season came in June, it was time to get out the Allis Chalmers SP100 self-propelled combine. It was stored over at the McNary Farm. There was a shed there big enough to hold it. Dad was always particular about keeping the tractors and implements indoors as much as possible.

    I look at President Trump and I have a great sense of déjà vu. Portions of the population are behaving exactly like the employees in the old facility near Akron. They are calling him crazy, just like they did with us. They think everything is fine when it is not, it is very sick. I hope he succeeds like we did.

    My other suggestion is bigger, grander and solves an uncountable number of problems all at once. Mr. Trump, let’s build a new U.S. capital city in the middle of Kansas. Such a move has been done before – Brazil founded their new capital city of Brasilia in the interior of their country on April 1, 1960. Today, it has a population of over 2.5 million people.

    “Calexit” or the idea that California will secede from the United States is being put forth by people who have not thought this through. The last time a group of states attempted to secede, a president claimed by both current parties as the gold standard, waged war on them until they capitulated and rejoined the Union.
