Pontifical Pauline's Perilous Puns............................
Artifacts are a portion of an American-Indian reservation's economy.
One enterprising Indian was able to outsell his competitors in the sale of wooden dolls by selling them at only a fraction of the cost others had to charge. On examination of his dolls they found that where traditionally hard wood was used, this Indian would use cheap pine on which he glued thin pieces of fine mahogany, thus being able to produce the dolls at only a fraction of the cost.  
While he claimed his dolls were still authentic, his competitors complained that it was only a cheap Sioux Veneer.  
And a bonus or two.......................

That's enough from your embedded reporter for this week, trying to find cheaper gas because we won't drill for it, lurking around the Lisbon Beltway, just a stone's throw from Absurdia, the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.  And, according to our Boy Governor, every thing bad is ex-Gov.Erlich's fault........

But on the other hand...................

And some parting thoughts on our "changed" America
Food for Thought --- water for the Thirsty ..........

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn't solved the problem?   Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?

Why isn't the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago? 

When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines? 

Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks?
Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?
When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a 'vanilla' Iowa, because that's the way God wants it?

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?

Are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?
