(from the files) 116. smart water doesn't work

i was thinking recently that chris matthews is a pretty good news talk host.
then i watched him during the endless coverage of the virginia tech atrocity, as he tried to create news by playing psychologist with a suite mate of the shooter.
it was painful to watch.
i realized my thinking was bone-headed.
matthews is essentially a numbskull and i'm numbskullier for watching him.

so i have been drinking smart water hoping to alleviate some of my dumbness.
unfortunately i still watch his stupid show, which leads me to conclude smart water doesn’t work—at least not on this brain.

this result is something keaton predicted when i first told her of my plan.

Your smart water plan is solid Bob, but like many of us husbands you might be drinkin’ it from a dumb cup. Check the dishes. My cupboard is full of ‘em. If your wife has her own special cup, that’s always a clue.

Maybe it's Stupid Water in disguise.

three people, three different experiences. makes me wonder if smart water is just some sort of big plot to confuse the easily confused.
