It was a protracted chilly drive from Anchorage to the decrease ’48, in November, 1959. To kill the boredom of the grueling, 13-day drive we performed video games as we crept alongside icy roads in our ’48 Studebaker. One recreation, “A to Z,” was a contest with my sister to search out every letter of the alphabet, sequentially. After we stumbled on a pink Cadillac, I had my “X.” This “X” marked the spot of a Texan heading to Alaska in an air-conditioned Caddy with out warmth.

On the heels of the current Texas measurement freeze up following local weather change induced, report chilly temperatures, Rep. Rosendale and Sen. Daines barreled in the direction of us, seemingly in pink Cadillacs, every loaded with irrational logic (Feb. 17, Helena IR Lutey article). Rosendale linked Montana’s rolling electrical energy blackouts to President Biden’s first days in workplace. Rosendale and Daines then sped backwards, concluding we’d like extra coal and pure fuel generated electrical energy. With their Pink Caddy logic, they appear to be following “Thelma and Louise’s” plunge over the sting. Please, don’t take us with you in your illogical, political journeys.
