Scripture
Galatians 6:7-8
7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.11See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!12Those who want to make a good impression outwardly are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.13Not even those who are circumcised obey the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your flesh.14May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.15Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.16Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.17Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.

Rights, Wrongs, and Winners
“Rights, Wrongs, and Winners” is episode #640 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Nathan Hoobler, and originally aired on May 3, 2008.

Summary

The two finalists for “Best Small Town” are in a perfect tie. Each town is given one week to show the heart of the town to win the contest.

Plot

Odyssey is told that because of the number of criteria both finalists meet in the Best Small Town in America contest, there is a tie and a runoff competition would be held to determine the final winner. Because of a miscommunication Wooton has to reveal his identity as the writer of PowerBoy. The judges for the best small town competition say that since the company that publishes PowerBoy is the company that owns Home and Country Magazine, they would like to avoid any accusations of fraud. Senior Publisher Perry Browning informs Wooton and Mayor Margaret Faye that Odyssey will be disqualified but Wooton offers to leave Campbell County for a year if Odyssey will remain in the competition. However Connie Kendall leads a petition drive that results in an almost unanimous vote for Odyssey to forfeit the Best Small Town competition so that Wooton can return to Odyssey.

Notes

Trivia
  • This episode's name is based on the episode, #217: “Rights, Wrongs and Reasons”.
  • This was Nathan Hoobler's last pre-hiatus episode, and the first Hoobler-written show to feature Harlow Doyle (a character for whom Hoobler expressed dislike prior to joining the AIO team).
  • Wooton mentioned that PowerBoy loves Beth, the barbarian. This may be a reference to the short story The Lady or the Tiger in which a man falls in love with a semi-barbaric princess.

Reviews

Quotes

Powerboy fan: Mr. Doyle, is it true that you've been drawing Powerboy in secret for the last five years?
Harlow Doyle: It must be true. I just heard it on the radio!

Harlow Doyle: Why certainly, small child with a naturally deep voice!

Wooton Bassett: Oh yeah, county not country. I always get those mixed up, which is why I always go on those weekend trips to Switzerland by accident.

Wooton Bassett: <to the tune of "Camp-town Races"> Hello who's on Wooton's phone, howdy, howdy!

Wooton Bassett: Actually, a whole bunch of characters in the comic are based on real people in Odyssey. Like there's this one character, oh, she's always late for stuff and she talks all the time and she says stuff she doesn't mean.
Connie Kendall: Who's she based on?
Wooton Bassett: Uh, oh, she's also really good-looking and, uh, very cool.

Wooton Bassett: I think I have what Powerboy would call a solution that would stand up to a diamond-lined bowling ball.

Harlow Doyle: Jumpin' Jamaican gymnasts! I draw PowerBoy!? In my busy schedule, when did I ever find time to do that?

Connie Kendall: Wooton, why'd you just hit a pot with a fork?
Wooton Bassett: This house doesn't have a high ceiling for my breakfast gong, it's in storage.
Eugene Meltsner: But you once said that you couldn't possibly have breakfast without that instrument.
Wooton Bassett: I can't, Eugene. That's why I'm having 2 lunches everyday.
