Doesn't it go to the House for approval before it goes to Biden?

Re: First novel published

Library has many sections, BUT I have yet to find a 'Gnomes & Trolls' section.
I'd like it to reside in the 'Outstanding New Fiction' section - - -

WAIT, actually I hope there's a waiting list to read it, that many folks request it, and NCRL buys copies for all their libraries.

Re: More important is WHO is out there.

All rational explanations fail somehow when one has seen, in person, certain things. OOOO, SPOOKY! But true. In Southern Colorado, we sat and watched maneuvers by multiple aircraft, or spacecraft, that boggled our minds! The scientist among us speculated that the craft appear and disappear as they f...

Re: What are we doing?

Laws and purchase requirements won't stop a person intent on buying a gun. It isn't that hard to buy a gun even in a rural valley.
