Drowning George W. (G)
A variation on a theme...
George W. Bush was out jogging one morning along the parkway when he tripped, fell over the bridge railing and landed in the creek below. Before his bodyguards could get to him, three kids who were fishing pulled him out of the water. He was so grateful he offered the kids whatever they want.
The first kid says, " I want to go to Disneyland" W. says, "No problem. I'll get my Daddy to fly you there."
The second kid says, "I want a new pair of Nike Air Jordan's." W. says, "My Daddy's friends can get them for you and even have Michael sign them!! "
The third kid says, "I want a motorized wheelchair with a built in TV and stereo headset!!" Georgie is a little perplexed by this and says, "But you don't look like you are handicapped."
The kid says, "I will be after my dad finds out I saved your ass from drowning!!!"
PS Whatever George W. says, He's never run a successful business and has crappy leadership skills. You're not really gonna vote for the aristocracy, are you?

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.

the world... nutty.
