I missed it!
Did you know that the last school day in September is officially Ask a Stupid Question Day? I didn't know that. Did you know that? Why didn't I know that?
Well, I have a candidate. When stupid people ask me what I do and I tell them I'm a writer, they ask "what do you write about?" Another candidate: "What's up?" That's a totally stupid question as an opener.
The late Timothy Leary once told me that he was often astonished at the number of people who approached him in public and asked "Tim, do you remember me?" He'd usually reply, "is this an intelligence test?"

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
