The long awaited Mueller Report
Finally after some 22 months the Mueller report is in the hands of the Attorney General, who sent a four-page summary to Congress. The report apparently clears the Trump campaign of any wrong doing in the Russia investigation.
But Congress is hammering that they have not been granted access to the full report so they can read it. We should all read the report after the Attorney General finishes his work on the report.
Democrats in Congress want to read it, and the sooner the better they claim. I only wish that they were that interested in reading the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) before they voted on it. What I can find out about that law is that it only involves less than five percent of the population and it did not make health care any cheaper.
I would like to discuss the deer vs. car accidents. As the snowmelt is about done, one can see the deer carcasses in road ditches throughout the state. I traveled along highway 170 and noticed at least a dozen carcasses between Boyceville and Wheeler. No matter where you drive you can see one or more in the ditch.
According to a Web site of the Department of Transportation the deer kill by car accident has remained steady over the past five years between 18,300 and 20,400. While last year, in the United States, 1.23 million deer were killed by vehicles.
Paula purchased a new car last spring and it has that new adapted cruise control that slows down the car when you approach another vehicle from behind and also stops the car if something is in front of you.
A couple of weeks ago, while I was driving it out of Trego heading north on Highway 63 coming up to the crest of a small hill our headlights lit up the form of a large deer right in front of us. Before I could raise my foot to apply the brake, the automatic system was way ahead of me and applied the brakes and brought the car to a stop as the deer meandered across the road. The brakes came on so fast and hard that if we had not had our seat belts on, we may have kissed the windshield.
It won’t be long before we can take a nap and let the car do the driving!
