The Milwaukee Understanding

Last week....from up in Milwaukee...because there's no winter right now...folks worry about other things. So the boycott of Arizona came up at a county supervisor meeting. If we were closer to October....they'd be talking Packers...but right now...it's Arizona.

So County Supervisor Peggy West came out and said that "...unlike Texas, Arizona is not a border state....a ways removed from the border."

If you were wondering how important Petty is....she is a Democrat and was named the 2004 Hispanic Woman of the Year by UMOS, Inc.

At some point...after the meeting...Peggy said she misspoke.

Personally....I'm thinking that dozens...if not hundreds of the locals...probably think the same thing. If you asked where any city beyond Chicago is....they'd have to look at the Atlas to say. If you discussed the idea of a summer vacation to Vegas...it'd be like going to Thailand or Brazil...for folks from Milwaukee.

Then you have this weird ingredient of folks who do a bit of "smoke" occasionally....and it's hard to remember important things. These guys sit around the basement, and just start pondering things...after a good long smoke...and there's this rush of madness.

This is about where Arizona starts, and where it ends (then you do another hit on the joint).

This is about where borders lie, borders unlie, or where borders are in an imaginary lie (then you do another hit on the joint).

This is about where you thought Arizona was last week, but weren’t sure this week. (then you do another hit on the joint).

This is about where Arizona’s border was during the Bush administration but changed during the Obama administration (then you do another hit on the joint).

This is about where you talk about borders...like they possibly existed (then you do another hit on the joint).

At some point...you’ve done enough hits...order pizza....and then remember that your mom moved to Arizona and maybe you ought to visit her because you ran out of money. Then you wonder if this border thing is going to be serious trouble.
