To the Editor:

I guess one must be able to laugh at oneself once in awhile!

I was down at Chamberlain Building Supply last week and made what proved to be a funny comment - unknown to me at the time! The guys were talking of the goings on around the country, as we always do, and I chimed in on the protests in North Dakota of the oil pipeline Energy Transfer Partners is trying to complete. The pipeline is 95 percent complete and they had all the OKs needed to finish the last 5 percent.

Then the protests started.

The protests have gone on for quite sometime now and I made the comment that those protesting must have very understanding bosses where they work - to let them miss so much work. I'm sure they have used up all their vacation and sick days, I said!

Well, as I'm sure you can guess, the howls started and I felt quite foolish! I was informed, that for the most part, the people protesting don't work! Thus furthered my education and it didn't cost me a thing other than a little pride! So, you see, it's good that I stop in and visit with the boys! I learn something everyday!
