That old angel moon
The moon! I remember that thing! We used to see this same white orb in the sky when I was a kid. You don't see it so much now in the NYC area, where the night sky is a fuzzy pink-orange-beige color known as light pollution. And stars? Fuhgettaboutit. They're gone. There's not too many stars visible here, but still more than New York.
I loved how the moon had a white halo around it, and I also thought the sky looked very Southern.
Speaking of very Southern and not like New York City, um, I saw a couple of interesting items on the local news the other night. The anchor announced there had been one of those rankings of states' obesity rates and noted with a chuckle, "Louisiana is not the number-one state in obesity...but we're just a few doughnuts away!"
The top-ranked went like this:
2. West Virginia
4. The state I now somehow live in
Nine out of the top ten were Southern states. They attributed it to sedentary lifestyles, but I'd throw in there that you might want to lay off the hush puppies, and if you eat vegetables, try cooking them in something other than pork fat.
But the upside, noted the chuckling anchors, is that LSU co-eds were named the top 4 prettiest. Wait...did they just call women "co-eds" on a TV news program? That's right, local news anchors, women attend college now! And good thing they're pretty! That's a very important attribute in being a co-ed.
