The summer of 1983;  I was going to be a senior in high school and was able to participate in the 4-H Citizenship Program held in Washington DC. 


I had the very good fortune to get to spend a little time with South Dakota Senator Jim Abdnor.  


I was so full of optimism.  I knew public service was what I wanted to do for a living.  After College, I went to work for the Governors Office of Economic Development in South Dakota.  I have had a great career that includes positions in government, real estate, education and manual labor. 


Now days, not so much.  This song, "The Experiment" deals with my dissatisfaction in our leaders; both Republicans and Democrats.
