A bonus Shaggy Dog story....
 
When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he had trouble selling it.  People just didn't trust this "new" way of making light. In order to promote his idea he decided to go around the country installing lights in different towns in order to drum up publicity. While in Oklahoma, Edison stopped by an Indian reservation and offered to put lights in any building they wanted. After much thought the Indian chief decided that he wanted lights in his outhouse, so he could see what he was doing at night. This made him the first man to wire a head for a reservation!

That is it for this week from your embedded reporter, stuck between the Lisbon Beltway and Absurdia, the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan where fellow inhabitants have not figured out that the oil companies that buy, refine and deliver gasoline make less than 3% profit per gallon.  The federal, state and local governments who contribute NOTHING but our deteriorating roads take over 20%.  Most of the rest goes to the country producing the oil - and our Democratic "friends" will not let us drill in OUR OWN COUNTRY!
But, on the other hand...............
