  1. Did one of the editors just get a notification for an audit? I hear Mitch Albom has friends in high places. Just a coincidence I’m sure.

  2. I’d like to amend the Constitution so that all elections take place on the same day that taxes are due.

    Apparently, people get hurt if the media gives out the wrong info, like who’s punishing their political opponents with audits.

    Time to get with the program, being as how we’re at war and all. No terrorist appeasers in this household.

  6. Ken Shultz for President!!
