HALFWAY~! Back To The Future Again


Something's brewing in St. Louis this week.

Is it 1934 or 1968 or 2006?

WHO CARES?

WHILE WE AWAIT THE CARDINALS TO WHIP THE GIANTS,
HOWS ABOUT A JOKE ABOUT THOSE WACKY DEMOCRATS?


A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a fishing boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 646 feet above sea level. You are 34 degrees, 70.98 minutes north latitude and 95 degrees, 31.39 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"Heyyah," replied the Indian man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "But how did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "You don't know where you are, or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You've made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in EXACTLY the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's MY fault.
