When we drove back east every time from here in The Other Washington, we took I-90 through to Maine or dropped down to Virginia depending on where we were heading. The first time we took the I-94 side route over to see Gen. George Custer’s tactical error in northern Montana. In the summer, take a shorter-barreled 12 gauge with #4s for the rattlers. Just a head’s up if you want to go off the trail for some super photos of all those headstones. It sounds like a gazillion cicadas up there in July. A razor blade and a tourniquet isn’t such a bad idea either.
In our travels, we always ended up in Madison, Wisconsin about 1830 on the second day. Cheeseworld. The house of Cheese. Cheesaholics Anonymous. Yessir. They have cheese there. They must sell a ton of Miralax, too. The next day we drove through Janesville on I-90 heading to Chicago. I remember it was a pretty small burg.What I could never comprehend was why they chose Janesville as the Evidence Intake Center for all the VA correspondence. The problem has been solved.
I was watching the CBS news and they announced Representative ( and House Speaker) Paul Ryan was done campaigning for The Donster and was heading home to the wife and kids in his home town of … wait for it… Janesville. Seems if the VA wanted to get Congress on board for more dinero, they were going to have to set up shop in his congressional district. That’s a shit ton of jobs, Jose.
I just thought all of you might want to know that. It’s how they work. You scratch my back and get my folks jobs in Janesville and we’ll make sure you get some down yonder in Newnan, Georgia, Congressman Westmoreland. Roger that? Too bad the guys in Newnan got busted for piling it all in the back room. The shredders would have been next.
As Roseanne Rosannadanna used to say. “It always goes to show it’s something!”
