Four States, Two Interstates, 783 Miles, And One Really Pissed Off Bush Supporter

December 13, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Did something I haven’t done for a few months now and got in my car for a daylong drive across the Western United States. As usual my mind was spinning and I kept a notebook within reach for recording those precious thoughts. They are below.

·      NPR apparently is only interested in reporting the apocalypse.  Four hours of programming I learn: The world is ending. (new movie coming out) The economy sucks (obvious news story of the day) GM is going to go down (bailout going to shit) Drug users are using again (according to the economy going down) and couples are having trouble divorcing due to financial difficulties. The only story I didn’t hear? The one in which NPR lays off 68 folks and cancels two shows.

·      Overheard at a truck stop somewhere on I-15: “F*ck Obama! Like he is really going to change things! Personally I voted again for Bush.”

·      Seen on a bathroom stall: Fox News is the only credible network on TV today. Seen on the same stall: Bush is gay. Seen below Bush is gay: Bush is not happy! (priceless)

·      Driving through Arizona at night with a full moon is like exploring Earth’s shoulders rippling with muscles hidden by dark shadows.

·      Gas for $1.56 is only expensive when you paid $1.34 300 miles earlier.

·      God I really missed doing this.

    Sounds like an awesome trip.
    Now be honest, were you howling at the moon?

    Hi Tim: I absolutely love this. The road trip story in particular and your blog in general. Keep it up. You’re so inventive and resourceful. Makes me feel like a total lackey.

    Happy New Year!
