Ok , I just read a story from a source that appears to be credible about the Donner party, which suggests the stranded pioneers did not eat one another. Apparently, the bones left at the doomed “stranded site” were that of the family dog and other domesticated animals. Mic, Meg and I have discussed this story on many occasions over the years (as I suspect many have) as we traveled by the location in which they fell upon hard snows. As a resident of this area I understand the radical change of weather that occurs without a warning. This was a heavy story to me in that the survivors were accused of eating the others, and now after they have all passed, the story has reversed dramatically. Well, I hope there will be an update on this new discovery. Sometimes the most interesting story’s just go away.
And, why are we asking government to revise school lunches? Shouldn’t this be a “grassroots” movement. Come on people, there is strength in numbers! Remember the 60’s (that’s a joke), if nothing else, hope was alive.
