We may hear the words, but not really grasp their meaning. After pursuing the “ridiculously unreasonable” and traveling down that path as a matter of habit and becoming comfortable or entrenched with such pursuit, the “absurd” as such, may no longer be within our sphere of comprehension and madness ensues. The events of March 2017 may eventually be described as “March Madness” (apologies to the NCAA tournament). Let me begin with one such occurrence of madness by presenting a news commentary by the Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano (the title alone speaks volumes of Napolitano’s creditability):
Now that recreational use of marijuana has been decriminalized, the Nevada state legislature is considering a bill that will enable local authorities to issue permits to allow marijuana smoking in public places such as casinos. The bill (Nevada SB236) was introduced on March 6, 2017 and passed to the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee for deliberation and debate before it is presented to the Senate for a vote. The title of the bill and brief description is presented as follows:
“Requires a license or permit issued by a local government to operate certain businesses in which the use of marijuana is allowed or to allow the use of marijuana at certain events.” (BDR 20-43)

On the last day of the full moon during March 2017, a few good friends had the privilege of visiting the newly formed Gold Butte National Monument. Our experiences were memorable beyond all expectations. Enhancements by the beginnings of an anticipated spectacular desert spring bloom; rock formations bathed in moonlight; a flickering firelight and stories shared with a visiting Gold Butte legend contributed to this mythical and spiritual commune with this land.
Memorable moments beg to be shared and I would like to remind everyone that just outside of Mesquite is a place called Nevada. The area surrounding Mesquite in the springtime is enchanting when the desert blooms. The variety of color and intensity of blooms exhibited on desert daisies, roses, various bushes and of course cacti is astonishing. You simply must open your eyes and your heart to the treasures that surround you and be a part of this enchanted land.
Not only does the vegetation display itself in all its glory, the landscape also appears alive with a display of fascinating shapes and colors. This stunning rock garden covers the area and provides a portrait of its geological history, ancient sea beds and violent volcanic upheavals. Ancient sand dunes that evolved into sandstone formations show their varied layers and mineral content in multicolored displays that are constantly changing in form and color from the effects of wind and rain.
This is a short “how to” on always speaking the truth.
