Three morning tidbits:

Iowa may be soft on drunk drivers, but utility poles are not.

I've never been one to advocate for organized religion based on a wide variety of influences, but I do agree with Tony Perkins, who advocates for faith-based programs to be allowed in prisons in today's Register.

Finally, Nick Johnson offers a point that seems logical, but apparently needs to be hammered into the heads of some: the best tourist attractions focus on what you have, not creating what you don't.

I agree. One of my lifegoals, which I someday will have time to pursue, is helping the Blank Park Zoo become a major center for North American wildlife-kind of like a small version of the Minneapolis Zoo.

There are all sorts of fascinating critters and habitats, ranging from Musk Ox, Mountain Lions, Mountain Goats, Big Horn Sheep, cool Bears (Teddys of course) etc....

Lets get some bipartisan hell yeahs for Zoo expansion.
