Monster Madness

I take time out from my blogging hiatus (I’m sequestered for the next few weeks at my California house to work exclusively on Age of Reagan II) to mention a first: Yesterday I attended a monster truck show. I have a five-year-old, okay? And his favorite monster truck, Grave Digger, was participating! As a cultural matter this is beyond NASCAR: monster truck madness (which includes big air motocross, too), seems a combination of circus acrobatics, professional wrestling (good guys versus bad guys), and the Battle of the Bulge. There was a moment of silence offered for our fallen soldiers in Iraq before the engines roared to life.

Yea, supposedly kids love those things. I must say I'm disappointed to read you're still working on volume II. I was expecting it to be in the bookstores by Christmas.

Just make sure it has as many hilarious anecdotes as the first volume.

Better late than neve to Monster Trucks.
Next step in redneck colorization would be truck/tractor pulling. As good as or bette5r.

I've never been to one myself. But I saw a posting over at National Review Online where a father took his kid to one, and the kid simply loved it.

I think bull riding is something that kids are prone to enjoy as well. But then again, that's not something I've ever been to.
