So many things that I agree with. We think alike. It is also outrageously funny.
I have been inspired to take up the works of Wendell Berry and delve into the music catalogue of Wilco. This sermon memorializing 21 Americans, 22 if you count the author himself, 23 if you count is wife who has a palpable presence in his narration, portends that the key to navigating the divisive wilderness that is American ideologies and politics is a strong sense of gumption. Gumption in this instance consistently is the determination to work hard, do what is right, and approach all others with a loving and open mind. No sophomore slump for Mr. Offerman!
