While cataloging documents from the State Historical Society in North Dakota, I came across a picture of a butter sculpture depicting Theodore Roosevelt astride a horse. It captivated me and led to a slight obsession for a week or two.

February 04, 2016

Today’s writers turn on their computer and type a way. They can edit, add or delete, and get suggestions with the tap of a key.

TR: The "Go-To" President

January 26, 2016

Theodore Roosevelt was a leader and seen as someone who truly cared for people, voters or not. The world has changed since a president could correspond with a 7 year old boy, but it brings a smile to my face thinking about that time.
