Bright lights & Barack

Until last week I wasn't even sure that driving with your brights on was legal. Now I look forward to my weekly drive to Wichita for yoga and shopping, as much for the lonely drive home as anything else. It's a 60 mile drive and only around the half-way point, at El Dorado, do I have to switch back to the low beams for awhile.

I feel proud of the small city of El Dorado (pop. 12, 717) because it is the place that gave us Barack Obama. The US Senator from Illinois was born in El Dorado, though he lived most of his childhood in Hawaii. But his grandparents and mother - great influences on a great man - were pure El Doradans.
