    Article: Getting Out of a Hole (a Parable)

    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    Now if the guy will actually use the ladder. And not too sparingly.

    Wouldn't it be fun if he became an expert on ladders?
    Used them wisely and aggressively?

    That would be some guy.
    I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.

    Wonderful... Made my morning. Just think if we skipped the ladder and used some sort of new electric hoist from Japan or Cuba?

    I wonder if the bosses and employees at the other 29 work sites around town know about this amazing Ladder Technology as well.

    We better hope not - if they do, that might cause a run on ladders which will cause the price to skyrocket (they only make so many a year, you know).

    Or...

    he glared up at his boss and said, "I'm not digging. I'm prospecting".
    When he was 14 feet deep he unearthed a bunch of gold nuggets and one of the biggest diamonds ever found.

    And a jetpack from Japan which he used used to escape the hole. His only comment: "ladders are for scaredy cat geeks."

    Or...

    He struck a sewer line, crawled through a thousand feet of foulness, and came out clean on the other side.
