What did we learn today?

Have we learned that American ingenuity is the best in the world, and that we’re going back to space?

Have we learned about a thousand more picayune details about opinion polls rather than the substantive issues facing us in this highly polarized election season?

Or have we learned that if you are a piano player who can only charitably be described as “homely,” you can not only woo and marry Christie Brinkley at the height of her beauty and subsequently have three children with her, but then, at the age of 55 years old, marry a 23-year-old at the height of her beauty… while Christie Brinkley looks approvingly on.

Truly, those people who describe America as “the Land of Opportunity” aren’t kidding. No wonder we see so many people trying to float trucks to Miami.
