Not Evolved Enough To Clap Just Yet

There's not much going around here the last few days.  Been in and out of Kansas, and now on our way to getting our fridge and generator fixed in Indiana. 

You know, we rarely go to Kansas.  I can probably count on one hand how many times we've been there in nine years.  I think it's a weird place.  I don't really know why.  Maybe it's the Wizard of Oz thing.

This trip took us through Topeka where the landmark Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education, ended segregation in public schools in 1954.  Seeing the signs for the National Historic Site was kinda powerful.  It really makes one think.  Especially since it wasn't all that long ago.

What sucks though, is the fact that there are still people today who are fighting for freedom and equality. 

When it finally happens, that will be the day when we'll be evolved enough to really clap our hands.

In defense if Kansas, I'd like to point out that I70
has not one but TWO trucksops with Starbucks. The Petro
at Colby exit 53 and the Petro at Salina exit 252.

In my books it is ahead of msny other states. In fact I
Off the tip of my head I can't think of another that has
such a convenient latte. Oh in Kansas, you sat. Pity!

And don't forget the paparazzi lightning displays for free
almost any night of the week in summer.
