    I bet. I figured that the area wouldn't have the resources for our kiddo that she'll need with school. Not surprised to see that they're really lacking as an area, too.

    No, that's the hidden point. We warmed up with reactions to the Civil War Amendments and Grant's war against the Klan. We spent most of our time with the Colfax Massacre, presentations of it, and then finding out that a Supreme Court justice blocked the federal government from any role in...

    Truman State Suicides

    That school had one of the rare job openings this year. I looked at it, but the area didn't seem like one that really fit us.

    MLB: ***Official 2021 Chicago Cubs Season Thread***

    Did you see the word "if?" You'll have to refer me to any schwaber rage. For Lester, my only bother would be letting him go out on his own terms, and the fact that we don't have a major league starting staff. Even this year, he fills a need.

    5 days. I think the Governor pretty much killed hybrid options. Most families made the choice to go back in person.

    Big 12 Jobs Ranked by Podcast

    We don't pay well. We're not a real recruiting hotbed, and our tradition is very up and down. That pretty much rules out the top half of the conference, so probably the 6-8 range, and likely towards 8.

    Saw the new schedule for Z's small group meeting. 1st grade online is down to 11 kids overall from a start of about 4 dozen.
