Hello from a hotel in Peachtree City, Georgia! Business and other things took me out of town for the second time in a couple weeks, and I’m sleeping in stale hotel rooms yet again . . . However, sitting around with nothing to do has had me doing a lot of thinking.
For instance, I have come up with the following questions. If you can answer them, do let me know.
1) Who invented solitaire? And why? If you handed me a deck of cards, it would NEVER occur to me to make up solitaire’s convoluted rules.
2) The man who discovered milk . . . was he trying to get some action with that cow?
3) Why is it legal to beat your wife on the courthouse steps on Sunday in South Carolina?
4) Why are so many places in the South so doggedly unenlightened when it comes to . . . you know what, never mind.
5) I heard someone say today that saying what you mean is the same as meaning what you say. Is it therefore logical to then conclude that breathing when you sleep is the same as sleeping when you breathe?
6) In Kansas, it is illegal for children to eat their schoolteachers. How big a problem was this before that law was passed?
7) West Virginia’s state slogan is “Almost Heaven, West Virginia.” So basically if I’m a Christian, I go somewhere that’s just a little better than West Virginia? Just a little? That almost makes me want to take a second look at Hell . . .
8 ) Why did Obama defund the Yucca Mountain repository?
