In yesterday’s Seattle Times always entertaining columnist Ron Judd answers questions from readers and departs just a bit into serious business:
Q: I’m 12 and have lived in this state all my life. So far, my mom has never seen fit to take me to a county fair. I think she assumes I would be bored or something. Is she right?
A: First off, send me your mom’s name and I’ll forward it to the proper authorities. There’s little excuse for this shameful behavior. What’s with your mom, anyway? She must be from Snohomish.
County fairs are as much fun as you can have in this country without having Congress enact special legislation to make it illegal, immoral, or both.
Give them time…
You can work to make them critters get real jobs!
