Let Class out Early: We've Got Thistles to Kill!

...and kabobs to grill!

Notes from Pierre:
  1. Secretary of Education Tom Oster exhorts South Dakotans to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.
  2. The same day, Governor Rounds issues a proclamation setting aside the entire month of May to raise awareness of noxious weeds. "As citizens, it is our duty to protect our lands and natural resources from noxious weed infestations," said Jon Farris, South Dakota Acting Secretary of Agriculture.
  3. May is also Beef Month. Month.
South Dakota priorities. Discuss.

p.s.: ...and Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month! I can't keep track any more.


  1. Well, I was right on board without even knowing it--I spent about an hour chopping and digging thistles today.

    I can tell you truly that Canada thistle is a menace. Canadians are OK by me, though. ;-)

  3. If I were a betting man, I think the order would be beef, weeds, and teachers. Beef tastes good.

    Some might vote weeds first, however, because cows don't eat them, and the weeds threaten pastures. The more weeds there are, the less beef there is to eat.

    Teachers will always be last in any SD poll

  4. Sounds like the perfect month to teach the cows to eat the weeds :' )
