I’M JUST a country kid at bottom, and baloney, in one way or another, has always been a part of my life. So what if it’s all fat, air and artificial ingredients! Stuff that’s cheap and tasty appeal to rich and poor alike as few things do in America—and always have! Also, an added benefit is that it’s easier being sociable over baloney and not having to watch every word, sometimes even with women too.

“As if I need to be reminded, here I am with this situation in Iraq and I’m being hounded by the media as a deceiving lecher. In other countries it’s taken for granted that men in my position have mistresses and even illegitimate children that attend funerals when they die (not that I’m admitting anything illegal or improper). I think it’s time our great nation realized this and, in fact, afforded women equal consideration when they attain similar leadership positions. I’m certain my wife agrees with this view, at the very least in principle (and probably more in reality!). I think it was Al Smith who said: ‘No matter how you slice it, it’s still baloney.’ He could have been more positive about it but, as they say, there’s no accounting for taste.

“My approach to baloney , to specifically return to the matter at hand, is to peel away at the edges and take ’em one at a time. It’s easier then to make each piece fit into the shape and form you want: take advantage now or save for later. Oh, and there’s usually a lot less of a problem with left-overs!”
