Giography Div ( ... and New Mexico will pay for it subsection)

What can I say ..........

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said Wednesday that a wall is being built in Colorado.
"And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall. A big one that really works — that you can’t get over, you can’t get under,” Trump said during a speech at the Shale Insight Conference in Pittsburgh.
He continued, “And we’re building a wall in Texas. And we’re not building a wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible.”
Colorado is not positioned along the U.S.'s southern border, where Trump has focused his desire for a physical barrier, and there have been no reports of plans to construct a border wall in the state. A portion of the border wall is being built along the Colorado River in Arizona.
Trump presumably misspoke, as he had just been speaking about the border wall plans along the southern border between New Mexico and Mexico.
“You know why we’re going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on their border. And they didn’t have it. And we’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico,” he declared before mentioning Colorado.

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (Fiddlin'' Around subsection)

I can't say that I entirely enjoy Live From Here since it replaced Prairie Home Companion. Though gifted, Chris Thile hosts too many "weird" and un-listenable acts. Every now and then, the true genius does emerge.
Here along with Chris Eldridge and Jeremy Kittel doing a medley of fiddle tunes: St. Anne's Reel, Whiskey Before Breakfast and Salt Creek.
