Home Country: Flat Story

first_img“Flat story?” Doc asked. “No.” Home CountryBy SLIM RANDLES “Then I think I’ll order breakfast,” Steve grinned. “That’s ridiculous,” Doc said. “You’re kidding.” “No. Really. They said those pictures of earth from satellites and astronauts and the moon was all faked by Hollywood so people wouldn’t know the truth. They swear the earth is flat and that if you go to Antarctica, you can find where the earth ends and I guess you can fall off into space or something.” “Yeah.

But them flat earth folks just had to go.” “Did you read the paper from the city today?” Steve asked. The rest of us shook our heads no. Most everything pertaining to us occurs on the pages of the Valley Weekly Miracle or is deliberately excluded for the same reason. “I’ve been following that flat story, you know,” Steve said, nodding yes to Mavis for a coffee refill. “Haven’t heard how that went yet.” “And if they fall off,” Herb asked. “What then?” “You ever been to Antarctica, Doc?”last_img read more
