The old Associated Press style manual had an entry, "burrow/burro," 'One is an ass, the other a hole in the ground. A good reporter knows the difference.' Here we have an illustration of that difference.

Maytag is a great representative of Iowa. It's owned by Whirlpool, a Michigan-based company. I'd nominate Winnebago, the manufacturer of motor homes, instead. Nothing says Iowa like, "let's leave." I used to tell people that the Winnebago Native Americans from Iowa were never given a reservation of their own, so they had to travel among the other tribes' reservations. They got so good at it, that they invented the Winnebago motor home.

I've wondered about the feasability of such cloning, given the microfauna necessary in a gut to allow digestion. Just because we may be able to clone a mammoth, would the current species of intestinal microfauna work with the ancient digestive system?

Six years ago, my son and I were driving through Eldon, Iowa, so I decided to show the original American Gothic house to my son. A middle-aged couple were there with their two college-aged kids. Their son was taking a picture of the rest of the family, so I volunteered to take a picture of all of them. The patriarch of the family offered to reciprocate and take a picture of my son and me. After taking the picture, he looked at the back of the camera to see the image, but I explained to him that I had an archaic roll film camera with no instant preview. Then I noticed, and asked him, "Aren't you Senator Tom Harkin?" He was. This wasn't his family, this was his staff. So they took a picture of him, my son, and me in front of the house. The picture is at the link.
