Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

In the winter of 1825-1826 Robert Owen and Robert McClure brought a large keel boat loaded with scientists, teachers, philosophers, writers and other learned people from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to New Harmony, Indiana. They traveled from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, down the Ohio river to the mouth of the Wabash river, and then up the Wabash to New Harmony. It was arguably the largest gathering of learned people to ever assemble on a single boat.

Philadelphia’s loss was New Harmony’s gain,  and neither city has ever been the same, since.

Robert Owen called it the BOAT LOAD OF KNOWLEDGE.

Two Schools of thought

Ron Nesler New Harmony Indiana

Here in New Harmony, Indiana there are two schools of thought, about what one should do, if one discovers that another person is a moral leper.

The first school of thought holds that one should be extremely polite, keep one’s mouth shut and don’t rock the boat.

I am of the other school of thought.

Because, without the tourist dollars we wouldn’t have ….

PROBLEM OF INTERSTATE GIGGLING

Share

Now that  ILLINOIS HAS LEGALIZED WEED,  I’m guessing, that Indiana state Senator Jim “Bubba Bob”  Tomes is busy working on legislation for the use of “ANY FORCE NECESSARY” to stop interstate giggling, at the Indiana/Illinois state line.

We can’t have Hoosier Pot Tourists crossing the line back into Indiana, while giggling and smiling from the evil Illinois weed, now can we? 

I am reminded of Jon Prine’s song ILLEGAL SMILE
