Look West.

Actually, I mean, if you live east of Montana, you should look west. However, if you live west of Montana, you should look east. Wait…if you live in Wyoming, you’d have to look north, and depending on where you live in Idaho, you’d have to look east or northeast. Oh, never mind!

Just look HERE for the Rascal Fair, Volume X, which is akin to the Carnival of the New Jersey Bloggers, except it is in Montana, not New Jersey, and it’s called a Fair not a Carnival. I think another difference is that you probably won’t find too many posts about neverending traffic jams, Parkway tolls, or Soprano cast member sightings.

This week’s Rascal Fair is hosted by Karen of karbonkountymoos. Karen is a native New Yorker who somehow ended up waist-deep in sugar beets under the Big Sky. Go figure.

Terrorist Task Force Arrests Five in Jersey.

ABC News reports that the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested five Egyptian men in Jersey on Sunday, based on a tip given to the Newark Police Department. They were found to be in possession of maps of the New York Subway System and videos of New York City landmarks. Even though they all claimed to be unemployed engineers, they had $8,000 in $20 and $50 bills.

Four of the five men are illegal immigrants and the fifth is a law enforcement fugitive, having jumped ship from an Egyptian freighter in 2000.

The government is taking steps to deport them.

Now, isn’t that just special?

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days.

Eventually, Michael the Archangel found him, resting on the seventh

He inquired of God. “Where have you been?”

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards
through the clouds, “Look, Michael. Look what I’ve made.”

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, “What is it?”

“It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put Life on it. I’m going to
call it Earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.”

“Balance?” Inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. “For example,
northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth but cold and harsh while southern Europe is going to be poor but sunny and
pleasant. “I have made some lands abundant in water and other landsparched deserts. This one will be extremely hot and while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”

The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a land mass and said “What’s that one?”

“Ah,” said God. “That’s New Jersey — the most glorious place on
earth. There are beautiful beaches, streams, hills, and forests. The
people from New Jersey are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world.

They will be extremely sociable, hardworking and high achieving, and
they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed,

“What about balance, God? You said there would be balance!”

God replied wisely, “Wait until you see the idiots I put in Trenton.”
