Wild Fact About Me With the right parents, I could have been a contender.
My Philosophy First, do no harm. If that doesn't work, try turning it off, then on again,.
What Gives Me Hope Other peoples' optimism while I'm hiding in the deepest part of the storm cellar.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Require everyone who insists on making handguns legal carry at least 23 of them around their neck at all times, even in bed and at nudist camps; enforce a tax of $250/bullet on all ammunition; manufacture only those handguns that have a flag that pops out and says "Bang!;" require that all terrorists personally test their explosives on themselves before they are allowed to use them, plant more flowers, make local news organizations tell what is REALLY happening in their towns, start weekly singalongs, sack races, egg tosses, free picnics, and contra dances with live bands in the town square -- street people may attend on condition of first taking free showers at the free public bathhouses; plant even more flowers; decriminalize illegal drugs; make pot legal; make tobacco a prescription drug; give everyone a choice of the kind of work they want to do -- the work that gets the fewest volunteers pays the best -- do this once a year for everyone in the world.
What/who changed my life and why Stephen Foster. All my life, I have been trying to live out the message contained in his subtle lyric, "Camptown racetrack five miles long, doodah, doodah." So far, I have been unsuccessful, but, all the livelong day, I dream about the Camptown ladies.
