God was missing for six days Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the seventh day.

"Where have you been?" he asked.

God smiled pointed downwards through the clouds, "I've been creating something. Have a look."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor.

Over there I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people.

Balance in all things," God continued pointing to different countries.

"This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's Washington State, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Washington State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats, carriers of peace, and producers of software!"

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "So what is there that balances them, God?"

God smiled, "Oh, there's another Washington. Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

Ok. It's fashionable to criticize the hardworking folks inside the Beltway. But it's the glory of democracy that we can.
