Sometimes Sense Of Humor Trumps Common Sense

by Curt Kovener

We may have to get around to changing the name of this column, a review of the past few months reveals it has been more like Comedy Central or Laugh-In (for we Baby Boomers) or Hee-Haw (for we rustic Baby Boomers) rather than serious thought provoking commentary (which usually results in cancelled subscriptions for the not-so-open minded when I rub their beliefs the wrong way. Their names will not be mentioned to protect the guilty).
But in light of the stock market’s dealings last week and the news out of Washington, perhaps we need a weekly guffaw.
After scanning the Internet for something to take our minds off our problems (real, imagined and otherwise), here is an offering of life’s truths.
