The Surreal Country

My latest column is out and I am a big fan of the headline.

I don't write the headlines, so I can't claim credit, but I like it because it reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson: "We can't stop here; this is bat country."

The bit about arguing over which was was north reminded me of a story a friend of mine told me.

He lived in California, and enjoyed watching the sun set on over the ocean. One day, a he and a female companion decided to watch the sun RISE over the ocean. So, they went out to the beach one morning, and couldn't figure out for the life of them why it kept getting brighter and brighter out but the sun hadn't coming up.

Then they remembered that the sun rises in the east.
