At last, Alan Greenspan told Congress Wednesday the sub-prime crash was the fault of HUD and Congress who pressured banks to make house loans to people with no credit. The loans were packaged and sold to investors and now taxpayers are on the hook for the money.  Didn’t see that on your local TV news did you?

A study says California’s public pension fund is underfunded by $500 billion. How about letting all the retired D.M.V. employees get in line and wait until the state can come up with the money?

Punctual Paul’s Particular Puns……………..


Scientists at MIT have reportedly announced that they have discovered a new species of weevil that feeds solely on the cotton fibers in men's shorts. The researchers have no idea where the species originated, and are appealing to the gen- eral public, as well as the rest of the scientific community for any information that would help identify the insect. They are anxious to identify what weevil lurks in the shorts of men.


There was this haunted house on the outskirts of the town which was avoided by all the townfolk - the ghost which 'lived' there was feared by all. However, an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop of the day by photographing the fearsome phantom. When he entered the house, armed with only his camera, the ghost descended upon him, clanking chains et al. He told the ghost "I mean no harm - I just want your photograph". The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make the headlines - he posed for a number of ghostly shots. The happy journalist rushed back to his dark room, and began developing the photos. Unfortunately, they turned out to be black and underexposed. So what's the moral of the story? The spirit was willing but the flash was weak.

#2 in the World’s Greatest Hoaxes

      (Not counting the current administration!)


Sidd Finch 1985: Sports Illustrated published a story about a new rookie pitcher who planned to play for the Mets.  His name was Sidd Finch, and he could reportedly throw a baseball at 168 mph with pinpoint accuracy.  This was 65 mph faster than the previous record.  Surprisingly, Sidd Finch had never even played the game before. Instead, he had mastered the "art of the pitch" in a Tibetan monastery under the guidance of the "great poet-saint Lama Milaraspa."  Mets fans celebrated their teams' amazing luck at having found such a gifted player, and Sports Illustrated was flooded with requests for more information.  In reality this legendary player only existed in the imagination of the author of the article, George Plimpton.

Lucky Larry’s Liturgical Leavings…………….


Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.


The best is yet to come.


No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.




Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift


Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves

That’s it for this week from you embedded community organizer, still circling the Woodbine Beltway looking for the exit to Absurdia, the principle city of the Peoples Democratik Republik of Absurdistan.  When Michael Steele’s (Rep.) first act as leader of the Rino party called out Rush Limbaugh, I didn’t say anything.  When he charged groups for making speeches and pocked the money, I didn’t say anything.  When he chartered private jets for travel, I didn’t say anything.  When he backed Rino’s instead of real conservatives, I said something.  That makes ne a racist!   

But, on the other hand………………………………


We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give


The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn
