Pay attention to Congress’ investigation of Jan. 6

Regading Congress’ investigation of Jan. 6 invasion on July 27, the rest of the world is listening, Trump supporters. I dare you to listen.

I am fully aware that we are an imperfect country in an imperfect world which has gone astray in the past, but I am a television witness to what happened on that day and the days leading up to it. I know what I saw and heard and will never forget when that crowd of people climbed the walls and swarmed the Capitol calling for the death of the Vice President Pence by hanging and brought the noose.

Lives were lost by their brutality. Families were destroyed (some of them were their own families.}

Women and men alike are in tears today as the investigation goes forward with the witnesses testifying. The horror is playing out in full view of the eyes of the world whether you look and listen or not.

The family members of the invaders will be watching as well.

Wildlife officials said Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021, that an emergency trap-and-truck operation of Idaho-bound endangered sockeye salmon, due to high water temperatures in the Snake and Salomon rivers, netted enough fish at the Granite Dam in eastern Washington, last month, to sustain an elaborate hatchery program.
