Read a Book, Change a Life



Connie Schultz
It's hotter than Dante's nine rings of hell outside.
Crank up the fans, and pass the pile of books.
Most of us have triggers for childhood memories. These dog days of summer do it for me.

I can still see skinny 10-year-old me, left foot dangling over the back of the porch swing, right foot pushing against the dusty floorboards as I floated in midair, immersed in the adventures of other people's lives.

While our Republican colleagues stood shoulder to shoulder with the governor, having a gun placed to their heads to vote time and again to uphold his narrow-minded budget cuts, Democrats spoke with one voice that we can do and deserve better.
