When Worlds Collide

P.J. O'Rourke recalls childhood trips with his grandmother to Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History.
"Grandma, what's the difference between Democrats and Republicans?"

"Grandma, what's wrong with the people in the bad neighborhoods that we saw from the 'El'?"

"No one is ever so poor that he can't pick up his yard."

"Grandma, which Roosevelt was worse, Teddy or Franklin?"
