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.
