On the Edge of Common Sense 8-31-09

Baxter Black, DVM

There are globally astute, politically tuned, conscientiously correct people who watch C-Span and write letters to the editor. When the letter “A” is flashed before their eyes they immediately think Ahmadinejad (president of Iran), Ambassador or Al Gore. Whereas when I see the letter “A”, my mind brings up anteater, all-terrain-vehicle, and artichoke.

“B” to the world’s elite envisions Belarus, Bush, thiamine and Buckle Your Seatbelt! Me? Bass boat, Bag Balm, Border Collies and Bay horses … oh, and beer.

“C” – Them; Congress, conspiracy and caviar. Us; credit card, cowboy boots, and wild cow milking!

“D” – Them; Dept. of Defense, Doctor and Docent. Us; Dunkin’ Donuts, Deal the cards and double wide.

“E” – Them; efficient, educational and entitlement. Us; eggs and bacon, ediot, epoxy and entrepreneur.

“F” – Them; Frugal, efficacious, Philosophy and Barney Frank. Us; Flat out flat broke, flunked algebra and fishing.
