Summer Has Finally Arrived!
After cold and rain dousing us right up to the solstice, the real heat of the season has finally set in.
Today was a beautiful day in Missoula!
I biked my youngest downtown this evening for Out to Dinner at Caras Park. It was glorious.
A quick stop for cash became an opportunity for me to thank the Wells Fargo workers for diverting foot traffic from the broken ATM machine to the drive thru windows. They were busting ass to get the job done at the end of the day, unlike those at the top of the corporate scheme they slog away in service to.
I biked by a large Steve Daines sign, touting his ridiculous slogan:
MORE JOBS, LESS GOVERNMENT
Less government means less jobs. More jobs is obviously the private sector—will it make up the difference? Less government jobs means less consumer demand, which discourages hiring.
Seriously, will the private sector make up the difference? Why should they?
Whatever, the sun shined brilliantly today. Summer is here. It’s time to swim in the Blackfoot.
And it’s time for music, preferably live and outside, but for the purpose of this post, please enjoy a great song from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes’ new album, Here:
