States of Mind

The seven year old was quizing me this morning on where I was likely to go on my next business trip:

"Well, I don't really know yet."

"But not Kansas?"

"No, I'm pretty sure it won't be Kansas."

"Good. Kansas is an angry state."

"Um..why is Kansas an angry state?"

"Because of all the tornadoes. Also, it's right in the middle of the country so it gets squished by all the other states. That makes it angry."

"Ah, I see."

If we have any readers from Kansas out there, I hope that anger thing works out for you.

And all these years I've thought that Kansas' anger was a result of the KU men's BB team's inability to close the deal in the NCAA tournament. Except for '88, and that's only because they were CHEATING LIKE CRAZY! Go Cyclones!

Amazing how kids can cut through all the BS and find the REAL reason why things are the way they are.

I take no offense from that remark... I am from Missouri and we have been thinking thing like that about Kansas For a long time. :)

(maybe not the squishy part)
