I am the poster child for inertia. Where ever I am is where I plan to stay FOREVER. So much so in fact that it took me decades to understand the punchline about why the chicken wanted to cross the road. I was not born this way however. I came out of the womb a raving liberal. I was politically active at the age of 5 and campaigning my little left wing heart out for the Stevenson/Kefauver ticket in the first grade. Obviously this was to be the first of my many disappointments in life. I thought it was funny when Adlai responded to being called an intellectual egghead by saying "Eggheads of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your yolks" IN LATIN! The loyal opposition wasn't amused. Not only did it prove their point that he was indeed an intellectual egghead but it also proved he was a commie because he made a pun on Karl Marx! (heavy sigh) Fast forward past JFK's, MLK's, and RFK's assasinations, a failed attempt to start a local chapter of Zero Population Growth ( one woman argued that any potential food shortage could be solved simply by knocking down all those troublesome trees in the Amazon and starting farms there), and the optimism of my youth had pretty much been beaten out of me. A job at the post office killed the rest as well as managing to convince me that Doug Adams had something when he came up with that improbability drive idea. The postal service alone could provide enough energy to power the universe for eternity. Well as you can see, all that was really left for me was the movies ( preferably horror movies if possible) where everything made much more sense--and if it didn't at least it ended in about an hour and a half.
