Senator's office and ask for a pass. You must do this in advance.
One word - due to the fine folks in the "peaceful religion" you
cannot take a camera, purse or anything else along. One cell phone
and a picture ID is all!
In disturbing medical news, a
new study of 1,000 Americans finds that obesity in the United States

Thoughts Of An Idle
All of us could take a lesson
from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
Why does a slight tax increase
cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut saves you
In the 60's, people took acid to
make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac
to make it normal.

How is it one careless match can
start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

That's it for the next three weeks. I'm leaving Absurdia,
where less than 25% of the students graduate from high school and
most of those who do cannot read their diploma, the capital city of
The People's Democratic Republic of Absurdistan in the incompetent
hands of the very people that put us in this condition.
And, On The Other Hand................
