close Video Maria Elvira Salazar, daughter of Cuban political refugees, warns Democrats 'drank the Kool Aid' on socialism. Former Republican House candidate Maria Elvira Salazar says Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have no idea what they are advocating for. The Democratic Party’s lurch to socialism led to a presidential rebuke at the State of the Union on Tuesday night. From Sen. Bernie Sanders’s call for “Medicare-for-all,” to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal of a “Green New Deal,” to Democratic presidential hopefuls’ hankering for stiff tax hikes, prominent members of the Democratic Party seem unwilling to miss any opportunity to advocate for greater government control of the economy. Yet as Democrats justify grandiose proposals by decrying income inequality, many of us who immigrated to the United States from socialist countries see great irony.

Most people don’t think of a little piece of Norwegian sheep wool as a book art, but Anne Brataas does. She showed kids how to make felt from wool at her Make and Take-Along party at December’s European Christmas Market in downtown St. Paul. It was the first time this 5-year-old event had a booth for and about books. Gathering a group of youngsters wearing colorful hats and mittens, Brataas showed them this bookmaking skill: “You take a piece of dyed and cleaned wool that looks like a piece of fluff. You put it in warm water, add a drop of baby shampoo, and work it with your fingers to make felt that you can make into a mug rug.” The wool-to-felt exercise grew out of Brataas’ Fur Lab: Sensory-based Bookcrafting, in which youngsters help her develop characters for her children’s books about environmental detective Mira, whose stories Anne read aloud at the Christmas Market. (More about Mira later.) The kids had fun, but for Brataas, these kinds of … [Read more...] about St. Paul science writer Anne Brataas strives to give growing minds plenty of Vitamin B(ook)
