Trump Trophies

Donald Junior with his Elephant Kill

First the Federal Government decided to allow the import of elephant hunting trophies, then Trump reversed the decision. I was surprised. 

Then I received the poll results from my Conservative Republican Congressman - results below. Turns out a lot of people don't want us importing trophies of an endangered animal.

Seems to me that it is kind of fraternal genocide for the Republicans to be killing elephants. 

Wouldn't be more logical for the Trump White House to authorize trophy hunting of donkeys?


Almost exactly 117 years ago, a Category 4 hurricane made landfall on the barrier-island city of Galveston, Texas, with the storm surge and winds destroying at least half of the residential areas and killing at least 6,000 people. The September 8, 1900 catastrophe was one of the most destructive and costly natural disasters in American history, and even generations later it’s the watch word of sorts for what nature is capable of, and how seriously humans need to take it.

One of the reasons Galveston—which suffered damage from Hurricane Harvey in late August—is still around today is because the surviving residents rebuilt around the memory of destruction. Authorities at the federal, state, and local levels joined in building a massive 10-mile-long seawall to guard the city from the brunt of storm-driven waves. Galveston residents also changed the governing structure of the municipality in order to begin work on a most ambitious engineering effort: a project to raise the entire city above flood level, which required lifting buildings by as much as 16 feet and filling in foundations with millions of tons of sand.

Walk in Sarasota, Florida

The area along the water between USF Sarasota on the north and Ringling Museum on the south provide a nice if confusing walk along the water. Park at USF on the north, go to water and walk south through New College and the Powell Crosley Mansion, then to Ringling and back.
