You Say Potato . . .

No great insights; I just liked how this sounded on the radio traffic report . . .

"Eisenhower is an hour either way."

Or, with some creative punctuation,

"'Eisenhower,' 'is an hour'--either way."

I am reminded by this of an old Steve Martin line: "Some people have a way with words. And some people . . . ah . . . not have way, I guess." Dave, you have way.

In fairness to the traffic reporter, I'm quoting, not creating. But thanks for the compliment. I just like stuff that's funny.

I think what's even more funny is that I *just* now got that...and I've been looking at the post for a few days.

My wife just picked up 'Eats, shoots, and leaves(I think I put the commas in the right place...)' - you whacky English people... :)

The Panda says 'NO!',
