Primal Leap Frog

The spectacle of states jockeying for position in the Presidential Primary Derby earlier this year put one in mind of the first day of kindergarten when the most aggressive five-year-olds compete to be first in line for recess. [That is if the school still has a recess where children actually go out into a play yard and play, and the school is not locked down].

William's Whimsical Words:

The spectacle would be amusing until one stops to consider that on a national level the same lack of maturity is evident, and results in war, with the attendant loss of life and limb.
