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.

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?
