Without Prejudice

Originally uploaded by kristalynn.

From the offices of D.B. Malone, Charles Pantalones, and Tim Calhoun

Dear South Dakota:

Please see enclosed all receipts for expenses incurred while traversing your potentially beautiful, yet entirely unwelcoming, state.

In addition to the receipts for one (1) tank of fuel ($61), one (1) night of lodging at the Drake Motor Inn, and two (2) orders of flapjacks plus coffee from the IHOP ($12), we are adding a mild disgruntlement surcharge in the amount of $250 for damages sustained for having to endure Wall Drug billboards for over 500 miles, without reprieve.

In the spirit of largesse, please be advised that all monies reimbursed will be applied to Idaho's "Adopt a Lewis and Clark Highway" Program.

Thank you for the time and effort you have put into your state. Please accept my best wishes for your future.

Lawsuit pending

I hope you managed to get to North Dakota so you could at least compare the two. Did you know that North Dakota tried to rename themselves to Dakota? Twice? I guess they're trying to distance themselves from their southern neighbor. There seems to be some rivalry between the two. For example: Belle Fourche, SD, claims to be the geographical center of the US; while Rugby ND says it's the geographical center of North America. Wow, the Dakotas are simply fascinating!

nope, did not make it to north dakota. it was one or the other, as we were headed westward. i guess we chose the evil of the two lessers.

actually we chose the more southern route as we heard there was snow. we needed to evade snow.

Well there's Virginia and West Virginia...
I think you should send that letter!

I've never been to North Dakota - but I once got a postcard of four men's posteriors sticking out over a mountain. The tourists in the foreground say, "Hmmm. It seems to me we're somewhere behind Mt. Rushmore...." Funny.

Oh - since this was a story about SOUTH Dakota - I haven't been there either!
