Pages of History: Americans a funny lot, man notes

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1950.

Americans, as one observer astutely put it recently, are a “funny” lot. They have a habit of asking questions and expecting no answer.

Barging into the Triplicate office recently (on business), one observer declared, “We Americans are a funny lot. Everybody asks ‘whadda ya know’ when they meet on the street. And if you took the time to tell them it would take all day and you know darn well they don’t expect you to anyway.”

“Or,” he said, “They ask, ‘How’s your business?’ and it’s usually none of their darn business how business is.”

Well, whadda you know about that?
