Although I’m still reading “Gone With the Wind,” I thought I’d share a quote from a magazine article I read this week.
Before going to the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo last weekend, I just happened to read “Take in the State Fair,” by Garrison Keillor in the July 2009 issue of National Geographic. We’re in the middle of doing some stories at the stock show, so this article was of particular interest, not to mention that it was written by Keillor.
No. 3 on Keillor’s list of “Ten Chief Joys of the State Fair” is:
“To mingle, merge, mill, jostle gently, and flock together with throngs, swarms, mobs, and multitudes of persons slight or hefty, punky or preppy, young or ancient, wandering through the hubbub and amplified razzmatazz and raw neon and clouds of weiner steam in search of some elusive thing, nobody is sure exactly what.”
