I read a lot.
Which keeps me informed of all the news I need to know, and some news I don't.
For instance, do you realize how stupid some folks are? I do. Almost daily.
As that great philosopher Forrest Gump once said, Stupid is as Stupid does.
Being both an observer, occasional practitioner, and example of Stupid I can speak with authority on this subject.
For instance, in Daytona Beach, Florida an irate Wendy's customer left the drive-thru, entered the store, and chased an employee around the restaurant with a stun gun, which was pink. While being encouraged by a friend, who was not pink.
I can only imagine the scene (actual names have been used because you can't make this stuff up).
"Shoot her, Melanese Asia!"
"She won't stop moving, Katrina Mari-Alice!"
While an elderly lady is screaming "Where's the beef?"
It should be apparent that any time you have someone named after a Hurricane and another named after a Continent that sooner or later there will--be--trouble. Especially if you allow them to ride around together.
Stun guns will never be a problem in the Great State of Georgia, where laws are being passed to ensure that its citizens can carry real guns anywhere they like: churches (understandable, especially when Baptists are having Deacons' or Business Meetings), airports (What?), and yes, restaurants. Even Wendy's, which is only marginally a restaurant.
In Georgia, that same scenario would have unfolded like this:
"Shoot her, World's Largest Continent!"
Done. Now, about that Frosty...
