I don’t know why it caught my eyesight.  I was grocery shopping over the weekend and normally don’t pay much attention to the children’s aisle.  Heck, I didn’t know there was a kid’s section.  It’s just that a book about Vice President Kamala Harris wasn’t what I expected to encounter.  Maybe at Barnes and Noble but not in a grocery store.

Kamala met a man named Mr. Brown.  His name was Willie.  Kamala liked Willie...

There are books about barnyard animals and dinosaurs.  Pete the Cat visited the library.  Even a book about the Underground Railroad.  I used to live and work just a few blocks from the home Harriet Tubman set up for indigent former slaves.  I even knew some of her relatives.  It’s great history.

Harris, on the other hand…

I guess we’ll see.  She’s in her mid-50s but it’s almost as if her political career is just getting started.  The verdict of history is decades away.

When I was a boy, I liked good story books.  My parents bought me tales about the FBI and the United States Navy.  These were actually written for children and there was a time when I thought I could be a G-Man.  I also had books about fairy tales and trains.  I never bought a book about a politician until I was in college.  I was in a store and picked up a book about Lyndon Johnson.  To be fair, I also later bought books about Barry Goldwater and Richard Nixon and then many, many more.  These were all serious biographies.

I don’t believe a book about the current Vice President in a children’s section is anything more than propaganda.  In deep politically red Southern Idaho.
