All that accomplishes for them is losing respect. 
Nobody likes the searches at the airports, and any group
trying to get exemptions on religious grounds just isolates
them. They obviously won't get their exemptions, so why
be a nuisance about it?

Until now the Sikhs had earned respect by being more
mature and civilized than other turban wearers, but events
like this will erode that respect very quickly!

Have FUN!

Mr. Jones patted his daughter's hand fondly, and told her, "Your young man told me today he wanted you as a bride, and I gave my consent." "Oh, Papa," gushed the daughter, "it's going to be so hard leaving mother." "I understand perfectly, my dear," beamed Mr. Jones. "You can gladly take her with you."

On a high school science quiz in Florida there was the question, "When water becomes ice which of its physical properties increases?" Everyone answered, "Its volume.." Except one wise guy who wrote, "When water becomes ice, its price increases."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Marsha Munley, 37 and William Rice, 44 of Denham Springs, LA Crooks busted after they walked into Sheriff's Office DENHAM SPRINGS, LA — According to Fox 44 in Baton Rouge, a rash of vacuum thefts in Livingston Parish had the Sheriff’s Office baffled. That is until the thieves unwittingly drove themselves straight into Deputy custody. During the afternoon hours on Wednesday, Sept. 21, a deputy looked out of his office window and couldn’t believe what he saw. It was the vehicle they had been seeking in connection to a series of thefts that had occurred over the past week at a car wash establishment. Detectives determined that the couple would break the lock mechanisms to gain entry into vacuum cleaners and steal the coins they found in the trash containers located inside. (Not the coin operation strong-box, but the odd coins vacuumed up along with cigarette butts and dropped fries.) No less than four businesses were victimized by the pair. The investigation is ongoing and more charges are forthcoming. The vehicle had been caught on surveillance cameras. The driver of the 1990’s model red and white Chevy Suburban that was caught on tape went into the Sheriff’s Office to file a theft complain in an unrelated matter. Detectives took the statement of William Rice, 44, of Denham Springs and his female companion Marsha Munley, 37, also of Denham Springs. Once they took the statement, the duo was taken into custody and they were each charged with 3 counts of Simple Criminal Damage to Property and 1 Count Simple Theft. The investigation is ongoing and more charges are forthcoming. Rice and Munley are currently locked up in the Livingston Parish Detention Center. Their bond has been set at $2,000. Officials say that Rice and Munley would break the lock mechanism to gain entry into vacuum cleaners and steal the coins in the trash.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ms Liebsock Re: TRUE STORY Dear Webby TRUE STORY ... Dear Ms Liebsock Whenever you see "TRUE STORY" and it comes from AOL, it is a hoax. Also, if it comes from AOL and you read "As announced by Microsoft (or IBM, or AOL, or McAfee, or etc.) you can also file it on the same shelf. And take it with a big grain of salt. For tons of examples of "TRUE STORY" hoaxes click on the Urban Legend link in the left side margin of the Humor Letter. There are nowhere near all of them there, but plenty to keep you laughing for years. Have FUN! DearWebby

President Calvin Coolidge, 30th U.S. president (1923 to 1929) was a man of very few words. One Sunday he went to church, but his wife, Grace, stayed home. When he returned, she asked, "Was the sermon good?" "Yup," was Coolidge's brief reply. "What was it about?" Grace asked. "Sin." "And what did the minister say?" "Seems to be against it."

Thanks to Jeanne for this: As a frequent flier, I get annoyed when other passengers disregard the airline attendant's pleas to stay seated when the plane taxies to the gate. One attendant captured my heart by announcing: "The captain will be parking the aircraft at Gate 41 in approximately two minutes. I've seen the captain's car. So if I were you, I'd remain seated."
