Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s become something of a tradition for Civic Nebraska to offer up a few “civic missives” for democracy-lovers to share with family, friends, and loved ones on this sweet holiday. This year, we hope you’ll take advantage of our unique valentines to spread lots and lots of civic love. After all, who wouldn’t be in favor of just a little more passion for the common good – the affectionate notion that we’re all better off when we’re all better off?

Love is at the heart of everything Civic Nebraska does for our great state. That core feeling drives us forward, and we take it very seriously. We do not, however, put very much serious thought into our annual valentine offerings … none at all, come to think of it.

So without further ado, here they are. Our 2021 Valentine’s Day gifts to you. Enjoy!

Depending on which party you support, Nebraska is either a bad hue or … a Goodhue.

It is presently cold. It has been cold. It’s going to stay cold. Maybe get Bernie’s mittens.



“I’m not a cat.”



If you’re tardy in getting your valentines out, simply blame the pandemic.
