“Who do you think will win Iowa?” I asked Stan as he replaced the starter on my old beater. Stan watches all those cable TV shows about politics all day long at his garage, so I knew he’d have an informed opinion. It’s a well-known fact that the more TV you watch, the smarter you become.

“Oh, I don’t know,” he said, “I guess it depends on what the people in Boise decide to do.”
