Advice for Clinton (G)
Clinton, distraught and contemplating his latest scandal was walking through Washington looking for any kind of guidance.
He walks up to the Washington Monument, looks up and says, 'George, you were always wise, what should I do?'
Low and behold, a voice comes down from above and says, 'ABOLISH THE I.R.S. AND START OVER.' Clinton, amazed that he is talking to the past President thinks he'll try it again.
He walks over to the Jefferson Memorial and utters the same request. 'Thomas, you never had these kind of problems, what can I do to rally people behind me?'
Again a voice from above answers, 'WELFARE, ITS NOT WORKING, ABOLISH IT, START OVER.'
After hearing this Clinton is so excited he is planning to go to all the historic sites for guidance. Next he goes to the Lincoln Memorial. 'Abe, I need your help, people are losing confidence in me and they no longer trust me what should I do?'
After a substantial pause Abe responds, 'TAKE THE DAY OFF GO TO THE THEATER.'

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.
