The Dust Bowl is Coming


Ken Burns, vaunted documentarian, has turned his lens on The Dust Bowl of the 1930s.  His latest effort is premiering on PBS November 18 & 19.  I’d put that one on the calendar now as it’s sure to be worth the investment of time. Enjoy Burns’ documentary for the informative period piece that it is sure to be, and be glad we’re living in a time where we know better and would never let that happen again…

“If you feed horses enough oats, it will pass through their digestive systems and their droppings will provide enough leftover oats to feed the sparrows.” – John Kenneth Galbraith

If all that seems a little unsavory, you might enjoy this great new video which drives home the points from one of President Obama’s recent speeches.
