#1266 – Dick Bernard: Comey-Trump, The Sculpture Garden, and 23 and Me

1. Comey-Trump: There may be a few people in the U.S. who don’t know or care about the James Comey – Donald Trump matter.

I do.

One of my U.S. Senators, Amy Klobuchar, sent her e-list a ten minute interview she did on CNN about the matter. You can view it here. This is well worth your time. Sen. Klobuchar took office as U.S. Senator in 2007, previously County attorney in Minnesota’s largest population county (which includes Minneapolis), and (her words) “I’ve known Jim Comey for years (we were law school classmates!) and know him to be someone of great integrity.” She is highly respected and well informed.

Just Above Sunset gives an excellent summary of the last two days here.

2. The Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden opens today at 10 a.m..

Those who follow this blog know I wrote about the Scaffold controversy on May 31, and a followup post on June 2.

There are 22 comments at the May 31 post, the most recent ones (22A and 22B) from myself, brief personal observations about my own perceptions of Native Americans and how they evolved over my own life. The June 1 post includes links about the controversy through June 8.

3. Finding my DNA. After a long period of procrastination, I finally did the DNA test in May. I personally decided to do the 23andMe assessment only because it seemed more comprehensive than Ancestry (which I also feel is fine). Ancestry tends to focus on family tree matters, it seems. I’ve had my family tree for years.

I got my results from 23 and Me this week, and I am very glad that I made the investment. In a later post I will talk more about this. At minimum, the information is a snapshot of me for my descendants. Questions to me about this are welcome. dick_bernardATmsnDOTcom
