    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Here's a look at Craig's Twist 53. I'm calling it the "foam finger syndrome."

    The foam finger proclaims to the world that you rank number one. Our society, culture, and country is obsessed with this.

    At all times and in all places, we have this compulsion to know who is number one.

    Last Sunday, the Oscars... Best movie, best actress, best dress. The Grammys. The Emmys. Miss America. Reality Shows. Bestselling Books.

    But hey, in a free market, capitalist system, this obsession is a natural byproduct. Where it gets to be a problem is in government.

    When lawmakers start getting into the daily practice of determining winners and losers, then we've got problems.

    When it's power over progress, then hope is lost.

    ...I came up with that. Feel free to quote me. It'll help my ratings so that I can be number one.
