Mrs. Alton's family is from Minnesota. In a way they are, collectively, Minnesota. It has always pained me to say that yes, they are, indeed, dyed-in-the-wool liberals. Some have even held political office. They are really wonderful, warm and friendly people. Generous to a fault, kind. I mean really good people...with a political blindspot. Like many of Norse ancestry they are, however, quite good at handling money and financial matters...almost like it's genetic. Seeing what is going on with Trump's tax cuts, America getting productive again, this has their rapt attention AND their support. It's an amazing change because they, liberals that they are/have been, are actually looking, quite closely I might add, at what Trump is actually doing. They are getting all factual and everything. Now, oddly, they find themselves supporting Trump. Honestly, I NEVER thought I would see the day.
