What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

This is a great time of year for us gardeners.

I have to get up early to beat the birds and the deer to my raspberry patch. I get about two pints of raspberries a day. I eat about another pint as I'm picking. Next fruit will be the plums and then the grapes. I didn't get a single apple or pear this year--- frost must have got them. I started my raspberry patch from a few roots from my friend Janet Johnson's garden.
