You Only Had One Job . . .

Real life gems reported on the Internet:

☺A man spoke frantically into the phone: “My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart!” “Is this her first child?” the doctor asked. “No, you fool!” the man shouted, “This is her husband!”

☺Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn’t control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the line up to repeat the word, “Give me all your money or I’ll shoot,” the man shouted, “That’s not what I said!”

☺Police in Oakland, California spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them, shouting please to come out and give himself up . . .

☺In Modesto, California, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun, but unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket

Higher Education, Lower Expectations?

Just when you thought the weather had a chance of changing, the snowflakes are back! Administrators at over thirty colleges and universities have made statements opposing President Trump’s executive order on immigration. Some of the schools are offering counseling and mental health services for the students unable to deal with reality. I bet another load of coloring books are on order and the hot cocoa wagon is just around the corner.

Makes one wonder what happened to the halls of higher learning where one could argue their side of a situation, exchange ideas, perhaps, even yell a bit and no one puddled up into a trampled snowflake because someone disagreed with them. Back in the days when you started growing up in college, if you disagreed, you researched your side and came back with a good, solid, basis for what you thought . . . or shut up when you discovered you were wrong and learned something in the process.
