SOMETIMES YOU'VE GOT TO READ THE FORWARDS
Sent to me as part of a number of maxims by my cousin Joe. I really like this one, even if I disagree with the ones about the Bible in school (you may read below):
How come we choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?
This occurred to me again yesterday while I was describing to Tom Peyer how suddenly John Kerry went from barely registering to being the overwhelming favorite during primary season last year.
But it now occurs to me: The problem is that we don't remember that we choose from among 51 to be Miss America. The District of Columbia gets slammed again!
