Beautiful Downtown Fernley

As is my habit these days when I have a weekend at home with no commitments, I walked to the Wigwam restaurant-casino, had breakfast, and used a free-play-with-purchase-of-meal coupon to try and win my breakfast back. Today I got lucky. After that, I walked off breakfast by going to the post office. On the way back, I was struck by how nice the snow-capped Pah Rah range looked from downtown.

Beautiful Downtown Fernley

Fernley is not likely to win any "most beautiful city" awards, but it does have its moments.

This afternoon, I went to an organizational meeting of the Fernley Democratic Club. It was nice to see that there were other people in this city who haven't fallen prey to the nihlist madness that seems to have overtaken a lot of my fellow citizens. Organizing at the grass roots level like in my city is about all I can do right now. The chairman of the local group commented that I had a good speaking voice. I explained my history with presiding over complex, contentious meetings, albeit for WSFS rather than mundane politics. One of the organizers knew about the Hugo Awards (but not the Puppies and such) and so I explained that I'm also one of the site maintainers for The Hugo Awards web site. Whether I can do a whole lot at our local level, I don't know, but I'll try to go to meetings at least.
