"The Wizard of Oz" is 70 years old. If Dorothy were to encounter men with no brain, no heart, and no courage today, she wouldn't be in Oz, she'd be in Congress...

Kinda' fitting because I think TWWOO is replete with political as well as social commentary anyway. I think seeing the relationship is somewhat intended, if not from a different time? I don't think it's purely a piece of literature for the kids.

Having said that, though, there's a mathematical angle to your comment, too:

It's been scientifically quantified that if we took all the currently active politicians in the United States as of 2009 and placed them end-to-end (head to foot) around the moon... we'd all be better off.

LOL, have to agree with you Dan...Both political parties are simply opposite sides of the same coin IMO...

So far this is just theory. There are plenty of theories out there. What we need is a good old fashioned experiment to prove the theory...or disprove. Either way I'm all about hard science.

And I thought this might actually be a forum about the Wizard of Oz for longtime fans.
