AS I SEE IT
By Neal A. Shipman
At a time when there are so many issues that are causing people to wonder what is happening in the United States and around the world, there is one constant in North Dakota that provides some degree of welcome relief. And that is the Medora Musical.
When you go to the Medora Musical, for a brief period of time you can forget about the rising number of COVID-19 cases because of the Delta variant. You can forget about all of the controversy about the merits of being vaccinated or not or if there should be mask mandates. You don’t think about the rising cost of fuel or how inflation is impacting our lives. And for a moment, you don’t have to listen to the debacle that befell Afghanistan after President Biden decided to withdraw American armed forces from the country which resulted in tens of thousands of Americans and others now scrambling to get out safely after the Taliban retook control of the country.
