Great article on the sorry state of education, especially
in literature. Most people come out of school knowing
nothing but how to get a job. Education should be so
much more. Without education in "letters", we have a
very limited idea of what life is all about.

First bike trip of the season coming up tomorrow
on the new V-Strom. Headed for eastern South Dakota.
Should be nice and hot. 85 degrees. I have a KOA
"Kabin" reserved in North Sioux City, SD. Air Conditioned!!!
Think I may stay off the interstate and just ride the back roads
across southern Minnesota.
