I’ve Been Wrong All My Life …

… about covered bridges.

I grew up in a small Upstate New York town through which a creek (which they pronounced ‘crick’) flowed. In an earlier time, one of the bridges was covered.  I was told bridges were covered because horses were apprehensive about going over a bridge when they could see the water streaming under it.

Made sense to me.  But today I was in the library and skimmed two books on covered bridges.  The horses weren’t even mentioned at all!  Bridges were covered to protect the wooden beams, trusses, and structure from weather. Damn.

Today the only thing that covers bridges is graffiti.

fashion model Ivanka Trump

In 2006, Donald Trump told the women on The View that if his 24-year-old ex-model daughter Ivanka wasn’t his daughter, he would date her.  Direct quote:

“She does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
