This is a response to VC 23 John 5 ("Crazy Eights")...

I must confess that I also read her column, right after the gossip letters about famous people.

I keep expecting some wonderful revelations on human nature, life as we know it, or something! She keeps printing logical "brain teasers". I wonder if she is a variation of an idiot savant. What does "Vos" mean in French anyway?

I guess having the top score on an IQ test doesn't mean you are supposed to discover or create anything "earth-shattering" and/or socially redeeming. I have fallen into the same "trap" everyone else does. A "high IQ" only means you score well on one test.

No, I don't know MY IQ. I was sick the day everyone took the test in grade school. I sat for the test later but my parents never discussed it nor showed me any numbers. Must have "flunked". Just an "idiot" here!!!

Now, John, YOU should be writing that column! Your little "crazy eights" is wonderful. It is elegant and clever and very, very SMART.
