One morning three South Georgia good old boys and three Yankees were in a ticket line at the Atlanta train station heading to Athens, GA for a big football game.

The three Northerners each bought a ticket and watched as the three Southerners bought just one ticket among them.

"How are the three of you going to travel on one ticket?" asked one of the Yankees.

"Watch and learn," answered one of the boys from the South.

When the six travelers boarded the train, the three Yankees sat down, but the three Southerners crammed into a bathroom together and closed the door.

Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around to collect tickets.

He knocked on the bathroom door and said, "tickets please." The door opened just a crack, and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The conductor took it and moved on.

The Yankees saw this happen and agreed it was quite a clever idea. Indeed, so clever that they decided to do the same thing on the return trip and save some money.

That evening after the game, when they got to the train station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip, while to their astonishment the three Southerners didn't buy even one ticket.

"How are you going to travel without a ticket?"asked one of the perplexed Yankees.

"Watch and learn, answered one of the Southern boys.

When they boarded the train, the three Northerners crammed themselves into a bathroom, and the three Southerners crammed themselves into the other bathroom across from it.

Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Southerners left their bathroom and walked quietly over to the Yankees' bathroom. He knocked on the door and said, "ticket please."

There's just no way on God's green earth to explain how the South lost the Civil War.

Liberals Think?


“They have actually turned thinking into a hate crime!” he declared.
Thoughtful comedian Evan Sayet explained why the American left is so opposed to argument or debate, arguing that liberals view thought as so inextricably bound to race, identity and orientation that they “have actually turned thinking into a hate crime.”

“Liberals only do well when they lecture to you,” he asserted. “They do just fine on the 23-minute nightly news, where [NBC's] David Gregory dictates the truth to you. Take those same arguments to the debate and discussion programs on cable, and it’s only Fox News.”

“They have cowed us into not speaking,” he continued. “For one thing we’re polite, and they have made debate and discussion something that is ugly. ‘You’re a racist, you’re a bigot, you’re a homophobe, you’re a xenophobe.’”

“They have actually turned thinking into a hate crime!” he declared. “The concept behind this is that anything you believe . . . is so tainted by your personal prejudices — the fact that you’re white, the fact that you’re black, the fact that you’re tall, the fact that you’re short, that you’re fat, you’re skinny, you’re rich, you’re poor — anything you believe is going to be just a reflection of your prejudices.”

“Therefore the only way not to be a bigot is to never think at all,” Sayet explained. “So it’s not that the liberal is stupid, it’s that he has made thinking into something he will not engage in.”

Some will remember that Evan Sayet was once a writer for Bill Maher before he decided enough was enough and struck out on his own.  In 2007 he made a huge splash with this address to the Heritage Foundation: "How Modern Liberals Think"

A future book?

I  read Kim duToit's Vienna Days and Family Fortunes some years ago, and just ran across them on the bookshelf.  Made me wonder whether he'd written any more, and lo! Yes. Two.  Prime Target, and  Creative License.  He's a skilled writer, as most of you know, and has a James Michener-like appreciation for detail which I love.  At this stage, if I'm honest, I don't remember many details of either book previous book, but then I quite often forget my gym locker combination too.  I do remember that both were my summer vacation book, in successive years, and I read them straight through.  Now that I'm in my dotage, I can probably read them again.   Dotage has advantages.
