If you could change the world, what would you do? On the occasion of my 55th birthday, I resolved towrite my druthers. I've always been a "e;change the world"e; kind of guy. At 55, I'm finally ready to stop beating my head against the wall, or at least do it with far less regularity. Instead I have decided to work on the perfect plan, from my perspective of course. But then who else's perspective could I write from? If America worked the way it is supposed to work, then my plan, my opinion, should count just as much as anybody else's. The fact is that if I had gazillions of dollars, then my opinion would count for something significant. It should be enough that I am a citizen, resident of the county Burleigh, the state North Dakota, of these United. Although we have the right to free speech, it takes a lot of the joy out of it, when no one's listening. Hence, the druthers. I remember it as a phrase my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Conroy used to say, "e;If I had my druthers. . . ."e; Well I do. I hope you will read my druthers and be inspired to start your own. If we both work towards making our druthers reality, the world will be a better place.
