Living in Iowa
While watching Perry Mason as an adult, and after spending twenty some years working with attorneys, I realize many of the things he did in and out of the courtroom would result in a mistrial or his being disbarred.
Why wouldn’t people want a puppet show with inanimate objects? They watch animated features like “The Brave Little Toaster” which star inanimate objects.
Sadly, the only reason I can see for Andy’s parents being upset with his wanting to live with Wally is they wouldn’t be able to (legally) claim him as a dependent on their tax return.
And which corporation/one-percenter sponsored source did you get your facts from?
One of my sisters lived next door to my parents for a while when her children were young. When my sister and her husband were at work, her older two (boys) were allowed to stay at their house, but if they wanted to go somewhere they had to ask grandma and grandpa. My younger nephew asked to ride his bike to accompany a friend to go to a mall several miles away, during “rush hour”, and was told no. My nephew later told me his friend said he was kind of jealous, as his family didn’t seem to care what he did.
And the uneducated?
I wouldn’t worry about the Senator not being too bright. I’d question the intelligence of the people who elected him.
Iowa has caucuses, which aren’t the same as primaries. Ohio has primaries.
Had a friend in grade school whose parents had three cats before they got a puppy. One day while one of the kids was holding the pup it started to growl so they put him down. After this happened a few times the family figured out it was trying to purr like the cats.
