Start profiling

Are we all getting scared or just dumb? Why do all people need to be searched to get on an airplane? It's because of profiling which means they just can't search dark-skinned foreigners and nobody else. I have the answer. Start profiling. If you are a dark-skinned foreigner trying to fly, you're going to be checked. If you don't like it, stay home!

Senior moment

Please forgive me if I cannot recall your name or when I saw you last, what I need to do next, where I left my glasses, keys, etc. I try the best I can, please be patient with me. Thanks for talking with me anyway. Since I was born everything has been jampacked into my brain. I am in overload.

Watch the kids!

Parents should keep a close watch on the kids if there are any ponds around. Every year kids fall through the ice in the fall.
