Hello Leavenworth St. fans!
I apologize for not being on top of the political news the past month or so. And I regret that this day had to come, but I sort of figured it would at some point.
I will be stepping back from Leavenworth St. – the talk of Nebraska politics, again, for at least a year.
However, LeavenworthSt.com will still live on, with more and/or newer writers. Some will write under their own names. Others under pen names.
But the hope here is that you will get at least a post a week — and hopefully much, much more than that — to read and comment on.
Now I’ve tried this before, and the writers sometimes end up realizing how hard it is to kick out a post a week. Or every two weeks. Or every month. (You get the picture.)
But hopefully you’ll get your fill of Nebraska local, state and federal politics, as well as discussions on all political topics of the day. The writers have been given pretty much carte blanche to write on topics they want, and I hope they will do so.
You will still be able to send in emails to LeavenworthSt (at) gmail.com, and both of Leavenworth St.’s social media sites — Leavenworth St. on The Facebook and @LeavenworthSt on the Twitter — will continue to be up. If you want to get notice of when there is a new post up, you can subscribe up top right of this page, or you can just Like L.St. on The Facebook and/or follow on the Twitter where new posts will be linked.
There could and should be some exciting races in Nebraska in 2018, and I regret that I won’t be able to take part here on Leavenworth St.
But YOU will still get to (Gaia willing).
God Bless, and au revoir (for now).
Feeling the Future
Oh, and one last note.
After the election I told a number of friends…and WROTE IT here at the end of May, that President Trump is most willing to “make deals” so that he can get successes.
And those deals could come with just about anyone in Congress or beyond. As I noted:
“In order to ‘keep winning’ he’d have to make deals with the Democrats, thereby diminishing his Conservative cred…”
I sort of thought this would come later than year one…but here we are.
Now I just wonder if the rest of the discussion from that post will come true.
Discuss amongst yourselves!
And come back on Monday for posts (hopefully) from some different people on Leavenworth St!
