Okay, so I lied. I've not been as current as I'd to be but I will continue to keep trying. Maybe the goal should be to keep it short and sweet.
My first sentence today is for the people riding across the state of Iowa this week in the annual RAGBRAI bike ride, sponsored by the Des Moines Register. It started in Le Mars (the ice cream capital of the world) on Sunday, July 24th and ends on Saturday, July 30th in Guttenberg.
It is from the book 16,000 SUSPECTS, a serial novel by 17 Iowa writers commissioned by Public Radio KUNI.
It is the year 2010 now, a full decade after it happened.
I hope the riders are all well and safe. Good luck to all of the participants!
