Have you ever met, or at least observed, people with an appalling lack of knowledge who nonetheless possess degrees and certifications from accredited institutions? “How can this be possible?”, some may cry.

Anything is possible and nearly everything can be purchased with the appropriate amount of money.

In our high schools there are some people who have money, but can't write an assigned paper or essay. Fortunately for them, there are some other people who are happy to write papers and essays for money.

For a significant donation, rich people can buy Masters and Doctorate degrees from our most prestigious institutions. Several vociferous illiterate right wing congressmen come to mind.

I enjoy broc, rice and yogurt dinners. I used to eat steamed broccoli and rice with homemade cheese sauce at least once a week, before I stopped cooking. That was one of my signature dinners.

I am happy to have recently discovered Straus Family Creamery Organic European style yogurt instead of cheese, I think it makes an even tastier, and more nutritious sauce.

The weather in Redding this spring is delightfully mild and particularly pleasant. This can’t be said for the weather in the rest of the country, (or the world for that matter). Record breaking, uncommonly powerful storms have been relentlessly raging to the east, north, and south of us as earth’s climate changes in relation to rising global temperatures.

For the past few years, we haven’t had the usual extreme weather events that used to be a part of living in Redding. No 116 degree temps in the summer or deep freezes in the winter. Just a steady rise in our yearly average temperature.

We’ve been experiencing some of Redding’s mildest winters while to the south there have been a series of heatwaves. To the north, heavy precipitation, and to the east a combination plate of extreme weather events are becoming common.

It’s time to lay some serious penalties and orders to cease and desist on the industrial scale polluters who bankroll anti-climate science propaganda instead of reducing their CO2 emissions.
