Meanwhile in the Gem City

The reactions to last Sunday editorial in the local newspaper are simply, er---out of this world?

We might possibly still be in Kansas, Toto:

There is no place like home.

And home is where the heart is, isn't it?

According to The Conservative Republican:

If The Conservative Republican says so, it must be true.


  1. Unlike the slippers used in the 1939 film, the shoes made for Return to Oz were covered in hundreds of red crystals: two types of glue were used to affix the stones to the shoes (a spray glue and an optical glue), reportedly, sir, no matter what was done, the stones would not stay in place, and kept falling off during filming. It is speculated that the ones made in the sizes of the Republican Party's vice-presidential nominee for the 2008 US presidential election had a similar problem, though there are those who claim that the problem was not so much with the slippers as with the nominee.

  2. There's a trail of rhinestones leading to the restrooms. Is Sarah in there? Freshening up? Putting on lipstick? Gluing rhinestones?

    My she is a sight in her sexy red dress. And towering black beehive which must be a clip on since it's veering off to the side. How can she maintain the balance on those stilettos? But she does.

    Now here she comes, smiling broadly. Picking up rhinestones from the floor. Ignoring all the whistles from the guys at the bar. Proud as a peacock on her walk.

    "Hey Sarah, can I have your autograph?"

    "Shoot me a moose," she coyly replies. What class! Better 'n "peel me a grape."

    Oh no, not grapefruit again! Are the creatures of the night out yet? Is it already that late?

    Nothing to do but hunker down at the bar. It's getting mighty dangerous out there.
