  1. Sandy says:

    Thank you, Joe Uveges, for your thoughtful, open-minded commentary on “reaching across the aisle” in our everyday lives. All of us should apply the concept much more liberally than we do.

  2. Don says:

    Joe,you rock! Thanks for your honest, kind, and inclusive remarks. May every one be this “teachable”, for “The teachable shall inherit the Earth”. By the way, don’t forget to wear your belt to the Peter Mayer concert, which starts at the UU High Plains Church on May 14th. 😉
