can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't
know where I am." The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a
hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet
above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100
degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude. She rolled her eyes and said, "You must
be a Democrat." "I am," replied the man. "How did you know?" "Well," answered
the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no
idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not
been much help to me." The man smiled and responded, " You must be a
Republican." "I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?" "Well," said
the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to
where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air.
You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem.
You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met but, somehow, now it's my fault."
