If There Was Real Justice In The World . . .
Watching television would make you feel smarter, not dumber.
Becoming a politician would make you poorer, not wealthier.
Baseball players would earn workingman's wages, and scientists would have agents and bidding wars.
Democracy throughout the world would be the rule, not the exception.
Kids would know more about history than computer games.
Calling someone a gangster would be an insult.
The idea of killing someone in the name of God would cause an instant aneurysm.
Vegetables would taste like candy, and candy would taste like vegetables.
Kids could go trick or treating without an armed escort.
Common sense really would be common.

Well I don't know about you, but anytime I watch something like "Jerry Springer", I feel really smart.

Heheheh good point, Ken.

I could take issue with a couple of these. Its irritating to me, for instance, when people whine about the salaries of professional athletes. Americans love sports. Americans can't throw their money at the sports industry fast enough. Would people rather all that dough was kept by the team owners who are in the game for decades, or by the athletes who are actually drawing the crowds, sacrificing their bodies every day in practice more than any construction worker or ditchdigger could imagine, and could have a career-ending injury at any time??
Professional Athletes work insanely hard and deserve the money they get as much as any CEO or entrepreneur who makes the same.

Also, last I checked scientists made plenty of money, politicians spent far more campaigning than they were paid, computer games developed high-level problem solving skills, television didn't have magic powers to make people stupider, and many vegetables tasted fantastic to anyone who had bothered to grow up.
I'm just sayin'.
Posted by: Sam at October 12, 2006 03:17 PM
Ah, so, in your world scientists make more money than professional ballplayers, politicians never ever profit from their position and influence, computer games are better for you than books, television has no pernicious influences, and broccoli tastes better than hazelnut chocolate.
Gee, what a wonderful, glorious, peachy world you live in.
Too bad it isn't the real world.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at October 12, 2006 04:22 PM
Ken, you need to work on your reading comprehension, but lets set that aside for a moment, because I think I can really help you out in one area:
If you still think Brocolli can't taste better than chocolate, well, "De gustibus non est disputandum."
Posted by: Sam at October 13, 2006 08:18 AM
Yum, Sam! You sound like you really know how to cook? I like broccoli too. BUT when I was a kid the smell bothered me so much I refused to eat it.
Posted by: zsa zsa at October 13, 2006 11:56 AM
I'd have to try your recipe, it looks good, but I am afraid it probably won't cut it.
Argh, see, I am a broccoli and cheese guy. You gotta put something on it - same with cauliflower.
Its gotta still be crispy too; wilted mushy broccoli is the absolute worst.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at October 14, 2006 02:06 AM
No can do cauliflower! Cooked is the stinkiest Uh, Ken? I have to tell you I have always thought of you as a cheesy kind of guy! Ha... Just kidding. I love ya man! You have really been great arrrrrt WILLisms.com. I remember when you had Am I A Pundit Now. You and Will have a certain kind of savy that reminds me of eachother. No wonder you guys are blogging together???
