The National Eagle Center in Wabasha, Minnesota, is a fun destination to observe and learn about bald eagles. Set on the waterfront of the Mississipi River southeast of the Twin Cities, the Center’s soaring windows and observation deck offer a thrilling afternoon’s eyeful of our national symbol. These magnificent birds seem to love the acrobatic effects of the updrafts created by the tall riverbluffs as much as we do.
Recently, one of our local news crews was on the river, and their footage caught an entertaining interchange. An adult, whose mindset appeared to be that of scarcity rather than abundance, was beset by several hooligans, who bested him of his wealth for the day. A finer metaphor to associate with the prevailing attitudes in our economic climate would be hard to find. Those of you in a reader may have to click into the post to view. Enjoy!
