These are too funny! Two of my boys asked me earlier this year how much it would cost for them to buy Alaska. I told them they didn't have enough money, and I didn't think a person could buy a state, anyway. They responded, "Well, didn't some guy buy it from Canada a long time ago?" It took some convincing that the U.S. bought it from Russia (and that guy bought it for the gov't., not on his own). All day long, though, they were plotting which state they were going to buy. I heard them saying that they were each going to be the president of their state, but they were going to joing them to make one country and take over the world. Later, I asked them who was going to be in charge of making decisions. One said, "John's in charge. Well, God is really in charge, but John's right after Him." At least they were being pious in their world domination plans!
