Corn Pone for Holidays

Some of us find the holidays too depressing, so, here is a motley medley from Bill Vaughn to liven things up:

A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy, but won't cross the street to vote in a national election.

A real patriot is the fellow who gets a parking ticket and rejoices that the system works.

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

By the time you're eighty years old you've learned everything. You only have to remember it.

Bill Vaughan
