    Sorry I'm late folks, but it has been one of those days.

    Sometimes people say things that make sense, sometimes they don't.

    Wouldn't a lobotomy technically be a lobotoyou since one rarely would perfrom this surgery on one's self.

    TOTD: What doesn't make sense to you?

The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    If you drive a car you have to wear a seat belt but if you ride a motorcycle you don't have to wear a helmet.

    Um, huh? Many, if not most, states have laws that require a helmet when riding a motorcycle and some even have them for bicyclist helmets.
