It Takes a Village

Hot Springs Village has its share of Village Idiots. A lot of times the town drunk is mistaken for the village idiot. We have numerous town drunks. But this is not appropriate. The village idiot doesn't need booze to be an idiot. It comes naturally. It can be cultivated in some people, but it takes a lot of work and time. It is true that some village idiots can be taught rather than born with the talent. But they are generally born into it, having learned from their parents how to master the art. Every Village needs a village idiot, otherwise no one would know they are normal. My latest book is, "It Takes a Village to Raise a Village Idiot." If this offends you because you happen to be the village idiot, suck it up and run for public office. Every other village idiot has.
