4. Already set to record!

Thanks for the reminder, I might have forgotten I had it until I looked at my list.

My father lived through this. He was not in the worst area of Kansas but I have stories and pictures. Even where he was it was simply awful. I can't imagine having to sleep with a wet cloth over my face or wake up with an inch of dust on top of you. They lost everything, they were farmers.

6. That must have been a frightening experience

I read a lot about it but I won't miss Burns' documentary.

5. "The Dust Bowl never happened." - Republicans (R)

"We have checked with Rush, Fox, and Hannity, and several of our other beloved overpaid draft-dodging, drug-abusing Republican Propaganda Sources. Thus, we believe for a fact that kinda maybe seemingly apparently the Dust Bowl was a librul, sochulist fantasy --- just like global climate change now -- caused by Kenyans without longform Birf Certificats. It never really happened.

"By the way, are you thirsty? How about buying -- before we raise the prices again -- some of our special Republican, um, "water"? - Republicans (R)

11. No matter the lies Republicans tell, this reality show will hit home

You will have to be a WORLD CLASS SUCKER to go on believing the lies
Republicans tell about global climate change -- past or present or future.
