On Sunday, Joe Biden lost his  mother-in-law, Bonny Jean Jacobs, after a long illness . Many people have been thinking about how we could honor her memory, given our appreciation of Senator Biden.

Well, I'm working on a Daily Kos pet project, supporting a women's shelter on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation ,and had an idea.

Since Senator Biden wrote the Violence Against Women Act , which funds women's shelters like the Pretty Bird Woman House, we would like to have a bunch of people <a</p>

A Way to Salute the Biden Family

by kfred

The average rainfall is 16-17 inches during the summer season. The growing season lasts three months, June to August. The snow fall averages from moderate to heavy for winter weather. The temperature in the winter is from 30 degrees below zero to 17 degrees above zero. The average temperature in the summer is 80 degrees but will range from 69 degrees to 110 degrees from June to August. The area suffers from occasional drought in the summer and severe blizzard in the winter

A furnace is considered to be a necessity of life on the South Dakota Plains, which is exactly where Pretty Bird Woman House is.

Just Fall In (POLL)

by kfred

This will be short.  I am calling out to all of those who are any of the following:

In the service
In-Country (Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, Germany)
In danger of immediacy

Have a relative in any of the above categories.

We are assumed to be anti-American - which we all know is the ultimate ass-u-me.  I would put up our statistics against any conservative site as being more indicative of patriotism, devotion to counry and commitment to the Constitution.  What say you?

I confess - I've always had a soft spot for Aaron Brown.  He was well known by Minnesotans like me.  As a former native of Minnesota, Hopkins to be exact, we were comfortable with him.  His reporting during the activity of 9/11 was pretty remarkable in its empathetic coolness.  He was reassuring.

That's why, when I read today's Star Trib, I was delighted to catch up with what he was doing.  Not only delighted, but reassured that he had not changed.  All it took was this:

Q What kind of documentary would you like to do?

A I'd cover five kids back from Iraq and spend six months with them as they try to re-acclimate to civilian life. I would try to connect their injuries to certain decisions they made before going over. Whether or not the war was right, I know those kids were sent in without the kind of gear that would have saved lives and limbs.


Do we want him back?
