The Wheaton mallard looks trite next to a novelty associated with Wadsworth, Illinois.
Wadsworth includes the pyramid house, the largest 24-karat gold-plated object ever created. You might think it's a tourism plum. But we learn there are "no more tours" of this lavish place. It's the home of an Armenian garage builder name of Jim Onan. Where does one apply to become a garage builder?
Ventura with his standard bravado said "no dice" on the flag. I'm really not sure about this stance. If the U.S. government in its wisdom made a decision on this, it might be best to just get rid of that piece of (very delicate) cloth. "We won," so who cares? Let those re-enactors run their drills as a hobby. Actually Civil War re-enacting is a fascinating pastime. There is a "hardcore" division in which they'll actually eat rancid bacon.
Can you imagine the kind of challenges travelers to the west experienced along the Wadsworth Trail? And today we're worried about drivers wearing their seat belt.
