I spent many hours listening to AM talk radio. By doing that, I learned how things are in the world. I learned that we have enemies, and found out what they are thinking and why they think that way. I learned what to worry about, and what not to worry about. Turns out that the hungry people can simply look in the fridge and the cupboards and the pantry, for that is where the food is. If those spots are empty, the poor should go to McDonalds or eat out of dumpsters, according to one of my trusted sources of info. The Japanese are Buddhists?, I had no idea. The Gulf of Mexico will clean itself. Less than 2000 birds died as a result of the oil-spew. We are winning our wars, and should consider starting a third. I am proud to be considered a "mouth-breathing troglodite".

Went to Cuba too. Tried to find La Bodeguita del Medio.

Ended up buying some ring garlic bologna and jaternice at Cuba Cash Store.

Greensburg, the new Gay Capital of the World. I've heard there are lots of salons and coffee houses there now. Why did the wing nuts make those poor hicks go green and gay. Just leave them alone. Oh boy, hand dug wells and balls of twine. Ah, Kansas......

The world's largest hand dug well is a heck of a thing. The lemurs always want to stop and visit it when we are driving thru Greensburg.

What didn't I do? Caught dozens of crappie and bass, ate exotic cheeses and put rounds down range and had things go boom, saw Boston Corbett's hole in the ground he lived in, stopped at every Czech meat market I could find, experienced the little flavor crystals exploding in my mouth at White Castle, saw a crazy dead white guy in Lucas, climbed in and through this huge ass scrap metal jungle gym, looked out of a school bus hanging over the edge of a building 13 stories up, went to the suckiest OZ museum in the world in Manhattan, rode a tram to the top of the memorial to the domination and exploitation of the Western United States, saw Truck Henge, and about 1017 other things.

I have no idea. Mostly drinking and drugging. Oh, and I fought with the neighbor about the property line, and I saw Bob Dylan again.

I spent most afternoons next door at my neighbor's pool. They weren't home, but I was made sure the babysitter had enough suntan oil to keep from burning. Milkman's a giving kind of guy, always thinking about others.
