Golf Count: 34 YTD and 145 PTD

I spent the weekend with the brightest, most fiercely patriotic people that I know.  And we are all in agreement that we are screwed.  Our nation's government is broken, in ways that have never before been seen.  In ways that will take decades to attempt a fix.  In ways that may never be rectified.

The brightest and most patriotic people I know have little hope for the representative democracy that we should be governed by. 

And that makes me angry.

After Blowstar I don't think we're as bright as we used to be. Too many dead brain cells...

Newbie. Dead brain cells make way for new cell growth. At least that's what I heard in Bandera.

Well ya see, Norm, it's like this.... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
