Friday's Musings

Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance................

There have been an average of 160,000 troops in theater in Iraq during the last 22 months. The firearm death rate works out to 60 per 100,000.   The firearm death rate in Washington, D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000.

That means that you are more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington, D.C.


If you don't pay your exorcist you get repossessed.

They keep saying the right person will come along; I think a bus hit mine.

Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it.

Don't follow in my footsteps, because I run into a lot of walls.

Lord help me to relax about insignificant details beginning tomorrow at 7:41:23 am EST
