Is Society Really Changing?

I have come to the realization in the last year or so that society is changing. My generation does things differently than my parents’ generation and my grandparents’ generation. That is good and bad.
The good news is that people of my generation are more accepting of people who are different than themselves. Through television and social media we see at an early age that the world is made up of all kinds of people, and I think we 20 and 30-somethings are less shocked at the thought of women and people of color in high-power positions. We are becoming a more liberal society, and there are good things and bad things about that.
Thanks to liberal thinkers women can vote and black people have the same rights as whites, and I think that society continues to become more liberal with each generation. Look how many states now recognize gay marriages.

Letter To The Editor

How deep does the corruption in Nebraska run? Since the passing of LB1098, “Senator Carlson’s Water Task Force,” the NRDs’ zeal for power and redistribution of the wealth has only intensified. Why do the NRDs persist in threatening citizens with property forfeitures if they fail to comply with the government’s heavy hand? Since when does depriving landowners of the ...fruits of their labor so that private developers can make a buck constitute good public stewardship? Various NRD staff and board members argue that they are just doing the people’s business, but this is nothing more than rhetoric. It has to be. Otherwise, why would the Upper Elkhorn NRD overtly halt the implementation of new irrigation wells in the face of rising groundwater levels?

Just Clean Your Junk Up For Cryin’ Out Loud

Attention Keepers Of The Crap:
 
 Before you get lost in the clutter of words that is to follow, if you take one thing away from this column remember that it’s no crime to be poor but you don’t have to be dirty. 
 You can thank my Mom for the above comment. She always drilled that into my head. Now, having said that please go outside to what ever junk pile is around your house, yard, vacant lot, garage, building or lean-to and pick up your crap.
 I know that one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, a man’s home is his castle, private property is just that....private...blah, blah, blah. But some of us like to live in or  near clean neighborhoods too. Looking at engine blocks hanging from trees, couches sitting in the front yard, and stacks of lumber next to broken bicycles and long ago broken washers and dryers gives me indigestion. Honestly I have enough things that give me indigestion the way it is.
