I'm out on a trip and on a layover. Today, I'm downtown in Atlanta.
And what do I see as I returned from dinner?
The hotel is hosting a convention from the United Federation of Doll Clubs, Inc.
There are a number of folks here, primarily middle-aged women, who apparently have not grown out of playing with dolls.
The idea that some of these folks would come together to form a club so they can talk about and show their dolls is odd enough. But, moreover, that these clubs would feel the need to band together to form a Federation just boggles the mind.
This country is in the deepest economic trouble in decades, and these people are playing with dolls.
