" Will Rogers never met you, did he?"

"Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved."

Will Rogers.

As a philosophy, that'll do me

Just in time for next Tuesday 's election.

"Democrats never agree on anything, that's why they're Democrats. If they agreed with each other, they'd be Republicans."


"Congress is so strange; a man gets up to speak and says nothing, nobody listens, and then everybody disagrees."

"There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the entire government working for you."

Sincerely,
Gargoyle
