O' Brother where Art Thou?

Two funny things in one article!!
from : The World Herald
It's an article about an attorney in Nebraska suing to block a casino in Iowa:

"... Bruning on Friday defended his lawsuit. He said the geographical oddity of Carter Lake - sandwiched between downtown Omaha and Omaha's Eppley Airfield - makes his case more complicated than simple state boundaries."

Not that that's too funny other than the phrase "geographical oddity" being lifted from 'O Brother where art thou'.

The real funny part was this line about the actions of the Ponca Tribe to get some tribal land approved for development:

"Bruning and Miller contend that the tribe deceived the government to get the land placed into trust."

Those Indians! Always tricking the government!

Anyway - what's that got to do with anything? Nothing. Other than the Coen's made the Big Lebowski and tomorrow is shabbos +1. Let me know if anyone is up for anything. I know it's late notice, but I'll check later and see. Ok. Thanks. Buy.

Well, here's a late response to a late post. I'm helping with this tomorrow morning for just a couple hours then I'm spending time with my little bro and fam since he's in town. So that'll be it for me. I might go for a run in the afternoon, but that's probably not too Shabbos + 1-like.

I put in 15 hours of riding this week after averaging maybe 5 for the past 3 months. I need a day off. But I'll pick it back up on Monday. Have fun if you go riding!

Oh, and your tie into O'Brother where Art Thou? was quite good. "Cause I'm a Dapper Dan man, I don't use Fop." Great movie.
