The great State of Nebraska has a new advertising slogan. “Nebraska Nice” It’s true, many Nebraskans are truly nice, kind and helpful folks. Even though I’ve lived in Seattle for nearly 20 years, I still refer to Nebraska as HOME. The ties of family, farm and friends still bind me strongly and fondly to the Good Life that is Nebraska. I still get a hometown weekly paper. I could do a two-week vacation in Nebraska and not get it all done. I am such a Nebraska advocate that I would guess nearly everyone I know in Seattle knows that I’m a very proud son of the great state of Nebraska. Sadly, I now have to put an Asterisk on “Nebraska Nice*” when I’m talking about back home. *because bigotry has gotten a foothold in Fremont, Nebraska.
