Comments From Idaho Statesman Readers That Made Me Laugh

November 5, 2013

Two items in the paper that made me laugh out loud:

1.      I swear to God, sometimes I don't think this state is actually red, just suicidal. (From an online comment by Skip Scanlin)

2.      Once upon a time, in 1990, the government seized control of the Mustang Ranch in Nevada for tax evasion. As required by law, it had to run the bordello. It did—right into the ground. The bordello closed.

If the gummit can’t make money running a brothel and selling whiskey, how do you pathetic liberal voters think it can manage a health care system?”  (From a Letter to the Editor by Dan Savino. Italics are mine.)  

I don’t generally agree with Mr. Savino, but the concept of being so inept that you can lose money running a brothel tickled me.
