An American, a Scot and an Australian were in a terrible car accident. They were all brought to the same emergency room, but all three died before they arrived. Just as they were about to put the toe tag on the American, he stirred and opened his eyes. Astonished, the doctors and nurses present asked him what happened.
T.J. Guerrero, 12, set up a time-honored American tradition: a lemonade stand in front of his family home in Dunedin, Florida. Then a neighbor replied with a newer American tradition regarding innocent youthful pastimes: he reported the stand to authorities.
“Please help me regain my quiet home and neighborhood,” complained Doug Wilkey, 61, in a letter to city hall. The stand is an “illegal business” that increases traffic and parking problems in the neighborhood, and “I am very worried about the value of my home, which is why I built in a residential area, not a business area.”
Methinks there cometh three horsemen of a sorry apocalypse: First, blacks are again rioting, looting, and burning. Second, the media are as usual lying, interpreting, concealing. Third, swatted-out heavies of a bush-league police force knock reporters around, arresting them for nothing, and refusing to reveal their identities. We are seeing the birth of a nation.
