Given this Unbroken Line of Pondering uses the last thought of the previous column to begin the next, could old settler ideas regarding Truth, Trust and Reliance help today?

A good and timely reach back to our past for guidance. This column calls to mind the streetwise survival lesson of Ms. Opstad, published here on March 11, 2019, calling for a “return to the roots of the childhood learning” to always “remember to Stop and Look Both Ways . . .”
“Stop and Look Both Ways” is a streetwise survival lesson learned as a child and only ignored at a child’s peril. “Stop and Look Both Ways” -- look left and look right -- is a streetwise political lesson ignored at America’s peril.
