Bob and I went to the Riley Institute and Furman sponsored program on the “Disparities in the Legal System” and heard from a public defender and an attorney in the juvenile justice system. I left the program both encouraged and depressed. Budget cuts and no new taxes take such a heavy tole on those most vulnerable people in our society. We heard a similar story last week when the topic was education. While MN may complain about high taxes, living in a state where they are low is nothing to be proud of.
On a positive note, the 95 degree temp and high humidity have left and I am enjoying 80 degree weather out on the screened porch watching a stunning sunset with black sky contrasted with beautiful pink, red, orange colors. The fan on the porch makes it very comfortable. Am I becoming a southern girl?
The two cats seem to not care about the hot temperatures but I worry about them and only let them out for a little while. I have to carry them in or push them inside. Smoky loves to lounge on the cement in the garage where it gets very warm. Goofy cats.
