Stonekettle on Intelligent Aliens and the State Fair

If you read this, and ever get amused or provoked by any of my own commentaries, you just *have* to check out Jim Wright's Stonekettle Station blog.
I find Jim's sense of humour echoes my own. He is an artisan (although Evil, a wood turner), ex military, reader of Heinlein and owner of cats - and opinionated observer of American politics and life.
AK, United States
" I'm a retired US Navy Chief Warrant Officer. Nowadays I live in Alaska where I spend most of my time working in my woodshop or fishing. I occasionally consult for the Military. I have delusions of becoming a full time writer - or conquering the universe, whichever is easier..."

Anyway, Vandy sent me a link to one of Jim's recent pieces : 'Things That Chap My Ass About Going To The Fair'.
He is spinning off a quote :

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.” 

                                                   – Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

(or almost anything else of Jim's, especially if you want to assure yourself there are too people living in Alaska who thing Sara Palin is a walrus...)
