Difference of opinion

By From page A11 | March 28, 2014

Perhaps your avid readers can suggest an opinion on a matter of current importance.

On St. Patrick’s Day, a lady friend and I were enjoying an excellent corned beef and cabbage dinner at a local restaurant; when it came time to order drinks I suggested a hearty red wine and she suggested a titillating white wine. Customers overhearing our debate said that red wine is for knuckle-dragging, hairy chested, brutish he-men, and that white wine is for more sophisticated, artsy-crafty and intelligent women. The lines were drawn in the sand box.

The discussion became rather heated involving politics, religion, underarm deodorants and other socially unacceptable matters. Being a person who detests public argumentation, we compromised on green beer, with an Alka-Seltzer chaser.

I guess my question is: If the “bullet train” were implemented, how long would it take to get from Chowchilla to Dogpatch Junction? (In dog years?)

    When you have to try that hard to try to be funny, it usually doesn't work. No exception here.

    It's sad that this drivel passes for commentary worth printing.
