Expert by proximity

Tom McCalden, Wolcott

Lying in my bed at home on Bellyache Ridge I can see the Gore and New York mountain ranges all the way to their peaks. I can also see Vail’s Game Creek Bowl, the ski runs in Blue Sky Basin and most of Grouse Mountain at Beaver Creek.

According to the Sarah Palin philosophy (her foreign policy experience relates to the fact that you can see Russia from Alaska) I can therefore (without ever getting out of bed) declare myself to be an expert in both mountain climbing and skiing.

Such nonsense from the McCain/Palin ticket must disqualify them from any thinking person’s consideration for a vote. As a sensible Republican, I ask you to vote for Obama.
