MARY MUSGROVE MATTHEWS BOSOMWORTH
(but never Mrs. Oglethorpe)
I’ve finished reading two H.F. books on Mary, Empress of the Creek Nation.
Wow!  Ive learned much and have all sorts of images floating through my brain.  I’ll need to do some sorting out and come up with my own conclusions much of which since it happened so very long ago can’t be proved or disproved.
I’ll share some of the thoughts old and new I’ve gained tomorrow.
MY TAKE ON THE DEMOCRATIC QUESTION-ANSWER SESSION ON CNN

All polls show Bernie in the lead in the tiny state of N.H.  However, as you would probably expect from me, I thought Hilary handled a wide ranging group of questions posed to her concisely and truthfully.  Bernie seems only comfortable with finance reform and the absence of war.  He plans reform everything by taxing the super rich as well as the middle-lower income folks.
He’s been around many years in the Senate  and wall I’m sure of is he didn’t back the war in Iraq and he’s worked on veterans issues.  On the other hand Hillary has a long list of projects begun and complete.
I say shame on college age voters who go for someone who promises them a free ride through college.  I’m all for reducing the cost of college tuition/books, computers, etc.  However, I’m not certain that getting a college education totally free is the best way to go.
I worked my way through college and sure it was a drag on my time and somewhat  demeaning.
The flip side of that is my total four years was far less than most kinds pay today in one semester at a non Ivy League institution.
