Comment thread on an article about a sexual assault at Drake University.

A complicated case of he said – she said. Unfortunately, when a man reports sexual assault the claim is rarely taken seriously. (On a side note, the caption on the Drake photo says Magnolia trees. Magnolia trees do not grow this far north. Those are redbuds!)

Years ago I had two magnolia trees on a residential property in Beaverdale. At least I thought they were magnolia trees!

I found an article in the Iowa Gardener Magazine from 2014: “There are a wide variety of magnolias that can be grown in the Upper Midwest. Many of the deciduous magnolias perform well in our climate and range from smaller to larger trees.”

    Yeah, they look like Magnolias to me. 😉

    And haven’t these people heard of global warming, or is that still a plot by the Chinese? There’s all sorts of “southern” trees that grow in the upper midwest now, that couldn’t make it 50 yrs ago.
