    Like many Americans I am a mutt, but I have never been so proud of my half Swede heritage as the last couple years. Greta Thunberg spends a good deal of time blasting her elders for inaction, while for this 68 1/2 year-old she is my hero. My auto-correct just tried to change her name to ‘Thunderer’. I like that…
    it has the ring of the Old Gods. I don’t think she’d mind!
    It’s good to finally see coverage of the Stockholm demonstrations! Thousands of kids marched here… supplemented by a few old fools like me. She seems to be in the neighboring Dakotas…talking to the Dakota/Lakota people, which is WONDERFUL, but I hope she comes this way.
