In The Midst Of War, Corruption And Destruction...
...I'd like to take some time out for what may seem a frivolous post. I'd like to recommend the fine Minnesota-made products of Battle Lake Outdoors. These folk make backpacks and other products whose materials, from fabric to zippers, are made in the USA, and they're very affordable. My spouse has the Maplewood day pack and the Monarch wallet-type case, and uses both every day. Check 'em out -- and no, they have no idea I'm doing this for them. I just think it'd be good to support an outfit that isn't corporate and keeps all its jobs in America.
Hey, nice briefcase! And the price looks like it's lower than the same thing at Office Max.
Their first-responder gear looks pretty nifty. I'm going to write to them to see if they'd be interested in donating a few of them to the NO relief efforts.
I would enjoy seeing more made-in-the-USA quality-stuff links. Right now all that readily comes to my mind is Martin-Logan... (music in background.)
Is there some website, besides maybe BuyBlue that lists these kinds of things?
More blogs about politics.
