Laugh and the World Laughs With You

I went to my first "meeting" of the Santa Fe Trail Historical Society in my area. I have been a member for three years and have never been able to go the meetings. It was very interesting. We were informed in more detail about William Quantrill's retreat from Lawrence which took him along the Fort Scott Road just to the west of Baldwin City and Prairie City. It wasn't new information for me but it was more detailed about what happened at the Fletcher Farm and in Franklin County. We were also told that they are starting an Eagle Scout project to replace the Quantrill's Trail signs that line the Fort Scott Road from Lawrence to the Franklin County line which I was excited about.

You would think someone like Brutus would already know how to laugh at himself. But then again, he is a born loser and thus probably failed at that too.
