Fair Time

Some of the best entertainment this time of year is the local county fairs and - then the Minnesota State Fair. The cost is reasonable, the food is great and the people watching is unique.

Many of the exhibits are a testimony to the creative talents of people of our state. These people are busy creating wonderful, beautiful things and should be rewarded. They are "learning by doing" (The 4-H motto.) Also they are keeping busy which is good for mind and body. Congratulations to all fair participants for a job well done.

P.S. If you want to get a pulse of people's feelings or beliefs, a fair is the place to go. They are people of all races, all income levels, and all levels of intelligence. end
