If you haven't noticed, I'm a pretty big Baxter Black fan - evident here, here, here and here. I was even lucky enough to meet him at Cattle Industry Convention in Reno, Nevada in 2008.
Baxter and I and some friends in Reno
Well, Amanda Radke has similar feelings about cowboy poetry, Baxter and his colleagues. In a recent BEEF Daily blog post, Amanda talks about the importance of 'Saving Cowboy Poetry' and the people who so eloquently talk about the Western way of life. She also opens up discussion on whether or not GOP budget cuts should be enacted, thereby eliminating funding for events such as the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, NV (close to the hometown of one of my good friends). There is quite a discussion brewing up in the 'comments' section of Amanda's blog - head on over and share yours.
Until next time,
