Salutations and greetings to you, the reader, this morning. You can’t trust anybody nowadays when everyone’s out there putting false facts on your television and on your computer. Why do they do it? No one knows, which means that someone has to put forth a theory. I nominate myself, The Codger, and I hereby present my theory, backed by my world-renowned Codger’s Guarantee: They have too much time on their hands and their parents didn’t do a good job raising them the right way.
For example, there have been too many people speculating rampantly on important issues…for example, on why the City of Chicago is known as the Windy City. Here is an entire Web page devoted to that very issue, and it’s chock full of nonsense saying that it’s called the Windy City because the politicians there like to huff and puff and talk a lot. Well, let me be there first to break it to you: It’s called the Windy City because there’s a lot of wind there, plain and simple as that. I’ve been to Chicago, and let me tell you, it was PLENTY windy. I almost couldn’t go outside because there was so much wind, and you might as well forget about wearing a scarf, because the wind’s just going to take it.
Unfortunately, in our society, this type of incorrect information makes its way to the public far too often because it falls through the cracks of government regulation: Why don’t the FDA or the DAR step in and do something about it? They need to learn that it never hurts to go above and beyond the call of duty, and that’s a truth you can take to the bank. And for you young people, I think that your favorite celebrity Crystal Palin would be the first to agree with me!
Until next time!
