Foamy Beer, Foamy Soda

Many people like beer, lots of people like soda. Beer and soda always have foam, but it’s the beverage we want, not the foam. What does that have to do with Wyoming K-12 education?

No other type of speech is more important to maintaining a government that is beholden to the people. Political signs in residential areas are an essential tool of political communication.
