Best of the Web Today

So let me tell you the story of my family. My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma. My daddy first saw my mother when they were both teenagers. He fell in love with this tall, quiet girl who played the piano. Head over heels. But his family was bitterly opposed to their relationship because she was part Native American.They eventually eloped.They survived the Great Depression. The Dust Bowl. A lot of knocks. They raised my three brothers, all of whom headed off to the military, and me. And they fought. They loved each other. And most of all they hung together for 63 years. And that’s the story that my brothers and I all learned from our mom and our dad, from our grandparents, from all of our aunts and uncles. It’s a part of me, and nobody’s going to take that part of me away.


Sadly a lot of these family legends just ain't so. Senator Warren has probably already done a test and gotten negative results. Otherwise, she would be playing it up.

It's rather reminiscent of the "my grandma was a bastard child of the Earl of Dalkeith" stories. Every intelligent teenager knows not to believe them.
