New Blog — Mid-Riffs

Check out the new blog, Mid-Riffs.  It’s got a catchy name for a blog offering “a view from mid-America.”  In it’s inaugural post it declared:

“While those of us that contribute here won’t always agree, we are bound by a shared appreciation for good arguments, logical consistency, geeky sarcasm, and all things good.  We are against things that are bad (e.g., Texas).”

And in its first substantive post, Mid-Riffs takes on the new high school millage in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

    The terribly ill-advised poke at Texas reminds me of one of the 1992 Presidential debates. Bill Clinton had been beating his chest about being governor of Arkansas, and Ross Perot noted that more people lived in Dallas than in Arkansas, and that the mayor of Dallas was a swell fella, but he wouldn’t vote for him to be President of the United States either.

    How’d that turn out for Perot, anyway?

    There’s really no such thing as an ill-advised poke at Texas.

    Place yer bets, folks! Place yer bets! Last one out of the ring alive is the winna! Place yer bets!

    Don’t get me wrong, Perot was as crazy as the day is long. He was however completely on target regarding the governorship of Arkansas qualifying someone to be President of the United States. I mean, why not make the First Lady of Arkansas a United States Senator from New York and Secretary of State while we are at it?

    Oh wait…

    Oh well, maybe the Dogcatcher of Little Rock will make an excellent Ambassador to the United Nations after all. You never know. Or maybe not- they probably had to auction off that spot to the highest bidder on Ebay. Welcome to the international diplomacy Jerry Jones!

    Jerry is one of ours, so either way, Arkansas wins again.
