What could be so bad? We were always the type who liked camp; according to Timothy Noah’s taxonomy, that makes us “normal.” People who didn’t like camp, he posits, “tend to have a problem engaging in organized activities of all kinds.” Like negotiating the debt ceiling. Perhaps the whole Congress hated camp.
