keaton said, your job is to find us a piece of land, like the pilgrims did.
i asked, for what?
she said, so we can become self-sustaining. it will need plenty of sun, and wind, and water, and rich soil.
i asked, okay. how about down south?
she said, too humid and they’re not quite over the civil war yet.
i asked, how about pennsylvania?
she said, bad roads and the home or rick santorum. enough said.
i asked, how about west of pennsylvania?
she said, that’s the heartland, it’s not where the brains are.
i asked, how about new england?
she said, too cold and that live free or die stuff gives me the creeps.
i said, i know, how about the great northwest? yeah, the northwest!
she said, too many serial killers and besides it’s too far from manhattan.
i said, how about the western hills of new jersey, like right here.
she said, it's too close to home! keep thinking though, you're onto something.
and i thought, whew, this pilgrim stuff is hard work.
