Oh, You Just Gotta Love a Feisty Old Codger

“Why are so many thousands not concerned about it?” Bryson shot back.

…like this. It’s music to my ears.

…Bryson didn’t see Al Gore’s movie about global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
“Don’t make me throw up,” he said. “It is not science. It is not true.

As he notes, he’s gone in to work gratis every day since he retired in 1985, so he doesn’t owe jack to anybody. It’s like the scene in ‘Fried Green Tomatoes‘, where Kathy Bates says, “I’m older and have more insurance.” It gives you a certain freedom to stop speaking with a forked tongue.

    “If you saw smoke in your house wouldn’t you get your family out?”
    Not before checking to make sure something didn’t burn in the oven or on the stove, and not before checking to see that someone wasn’t sneaking a cig in the basement.

  2. That was a FANTASTIC interview given by Mr. Bryson. It’s sheer genius how he’s going about the pro bono work. I think he has the Dem’s figure out ;).
