The Maharajah and the Coconuts

This blog is not political in nature, and I pretty much keep my political opinions to myself. For the most part. Sort of. Sometimes.

But, I have read from more than one source that the trip of King Barack and Dancing Queen Michelle to India is costing two hundred million dollars a day. Can that be right?
 I don't mean the calculation, I mean, Can that be right?

I once heard about a lady in a Bible study class who responded to the question, "How many children did Solomon have?" The question was asked in conjunction with the biblical statement concerning the number of wives and concubines the man had. Her response? "Why, why-- it staggers the imagination!"

The costs of this current tour to the Asian subcontinent is infinitely more staggering. Wonder what the return on the investment will be. Too bad they picked the coconuts. The odds are small anyway, and think of the excitement it might have engendered.
