"The Body" Goes to Washington

Wed, 4 Nov 1998 12:11:35 -0500 (EST)

I try not to comment too much on the state of politics in America -- especially until such time that I have earned the right to vote in this country. BUT as I listened to a talk radio show this morning and learned that Jesse "The Body" Ventura (see: http://www.kfan.com/jesse.html for a bio) had been elected the Governor of Minnesota, I decided to break this policy. The fact that a former WWF wrestler can become Governor of an entire state was just so over that the top that I had FoRK it (although I am sure that many of you may be aware of it by now). Although, I perhaps should not be surprised by this given the fact that in the past Americans have shown a proclivity for electing entertainment figures for public office. At least The Body is not so old that he is taking office just as Alzheimer's and dementia sets in...

As Always,

p.s./ Life in the Garden State is going great... I don't miss Geneva or Upstate NY one iota!
