Good morning. Amish in the rain. Lamar, Pa

On a two day run through Ohio and West Virginia.  The Amish amaze me.  I've worked with these people
from time to time.  Hard working to a fault.

There are some people who would like to move these folks into the 21st Century.  I'm against this line of thinking.
We're supposed to be a country of religious freedoms and yet some powers that be want to force the Amish community
to adhere to modern medical maxims. 

How far could that go?  Forcing them to electrify their homes?  Force feeding Cable TV upon them?  Replacing their horses
with cars? 

Leave these folks alone.  A community that still holds to their values should be respected and preserved.

Tomorrow.....West Virginia!  :)  I love that place.
