There you go again, Iowa basher. You realize, of course, your route west later on this summer will take you past the good people of Adair once again. Have you heard of Karma? Ask Dave Barry how...

Very impressive! I especially like your cool, calm, and collected manner in which you tackle calamities, like your busted gas-tank. There's nothing to be gained by a temper tantrum, but that's...
