    I wonder if Trump is going to back pedal on North Koreans being on the list now that he is chummy with Kim?

    I read and cherished this entire series as a little girl and I do not remember any negativity towards Native Americans in the books? I was raised in a household where treating everyone equally was taught. In fact, my parents were teachers on a Navajo reservation, I just can’t believe I missed that. I wonder if I did and asked my parents about it...I’m 45, so that was a long fricking time ago.

    The Dollop, each episode is a hilarious tale on a piece of history or person. Trust me, my description does not do it justice!

    The only fix, Fox says, is to change policy at the federal level. However, “I’m not appealing to ... (President Donald) Trump because he never understands anything,” Fox says.

    Everything I have seen Mr. Fox say is either hilarious or is on point. I hope High Times is able to accomplish much more with an ex-president on the board. It’s about time marijuana is legal across the Americas. Note, excuse my formatting, I am not tech savvy.

    Edit: spelled legal incorrectly

    I collect books, so hard covers only. I will occasionally use audiobooks for traveling and give them to family when completed. I usually buy my books via eBay, thrift stores, Abe Books, or Amazon (if it is a new release). We don’t have a book store in our town, so I have to buy online or wait till we go to a bigger city to shop in store. My family teases me, because I say e-readers are sacrilegious.
