Digging deep in the photo archives, found this old, faded photograph and it made me smile.
Photo taken on the outskirts of El Paso, Texas in the fall of 1995, by Paul Northrop, who drove me out to this arena-stables area and showed me his favorite mule, "Wyatt Earp." Paul then asked me if I wanted to take him for a spin. The ride was smooth as silk, but if you love mules you already knew that.
Where Did Left Wing, Right Wing Originate?
The terms "left" and "right" first appeared during the French Revolution of 1789 when members of the National Assembly divided into supporters of the king to the president's right and supporters of the revolution to his left.
What if I told you the left wing and the right wing belonged to the same bird?

If you can see some cracks, it is intended. If you see someone reaching across, that is intended. If it seems hopeful, perhaps I'm being a little unrealistic.
