Goodbye God, I’m Going to Bodie

Going to Bodie (10/16/19) Doug Van Kirk

The position of a comma can mean everything.

A young San Francisco girl, when told her family would be moving to the infamous gold rush mining town of Bodie, recorded in her diary, “Goodbye God, I’m going to Bodie.”

But, had the comma been moved one word, it would have changed the meaning entirely. Then, she would have been recorded as saying, “Good, by God I’m going to Bodie.”

The position of fall color can mean everything, too. Doug Van Kirk was on the East Side yesterday and found peaking fall color going to Bodie.

Good, by God!
