"Would you mind telling me, Doctor," Anni asked, "how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?" "Nothing is easier," he replied. "You ask him a simple question which everyone should answer with no trouble. If he hesitates, that puts you on the track." "What sort of question?" Anni questioned. "Well, you might ask him, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?' Anni thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh, "You wouldn't happen to have another example would you?

Terri says, "Buzz, darling, do you want me to wear this Chanel suit or the Gucci?" Buzz says, "Do I care?" A few minutes later Terri says, "Buzz, should I wear my Cartier watch or my Rolex?"

The fact that Todd Richard Ferry left an anonymous apology note in the family's mailbox the day after the kidnapping attempt in no way lessens the terrifying impact of what he tried to do, Judge Mary Jane Bowes concluded in the Superior Court's opinion. Investigators said Ferry, now 59, of New Enterprise, had an obsession with Mennonite girls in Bedford County long before he tried to snatch the 17-year-old off her bicycle in November 2014. The girl told police that she rode her bike home from work at a produce farm and was getting mail from her family's mailbox when a man knocked her off her bike and grabbed her. She didn't see her attacker's face, but heard him say, "Get in the car, you're coming with me." She broke free and ran home, but not before her assailant ripped her dress and bruised her shoulders and knees. The girl's mother called state police the next day after finding an envelope in her mailbox from the attacker. "I'm sorry about the wrestling match I had with you," the unsigned note read. "I fell in love with you...There is no way to approach you and now I have failed my only way...I still want to meet you and you don't need to fear me." Police said they later found Ferry's DNA on that envelope, and on a pair of sweat pants found lying in the victim's driveway. They said Ferry at first denied trying to abduct the girl, then admitted to accosting her because "he just wanted to talk to her." A county jury convicted Ferry on charges of attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment, child luring and simple assault after hearing that evidence. Several Mennonite witnesses testified during his trial that Ferry was "overly friendly" with young Mennonite girls. In denying Ferry's appeal, Bowes rejected his arguments that his sentence the maximum allowed for his crime is too severe and that prosecutors should not have been allowed to use the DNA evidence or the testimony of other Mennonite and "English" witnesses against him. Bowes discounted Ferry's contention that there was no proof he actually was trying to kidnap the teen. She cited the terror inflicted on the girl by Ferry's "highly inappropriate attempt to get to know her by force." The evidence of Ferry's guilt is "overwhelming," the judge found. Bowes upheld Ferry's jail sentence despite his claim that "there was minimal harm caused" to the victim. Instead, Bowes agreed with county Judge Travis W. Livengood that only the maximum prison sentence was appropriate in the case. She cited Livengood's conclusions that Ferry showed "absolutely no remorse," that Ferry planned the abduction in great detail, and that his behavior was "anti-social" and "strange."
Tech Support Pits From: Sandie Re: Response Challenge Dear webby, What IS a Response Challenge ? Sandie Dear Sandie A Response Challenge is when, after sending a mail to somebody, instead of an answer, you get soime silly auto-responder and are expected to prove tat you are human by punching in some hard to read numbers. It's OK to have that challenge as part of an order form, but definitely not OK with email. Like me, a lot of people filter that kind of crap into the trash, unread, just like any auto-responder. Have FUN DearWebby

Sure enough, just as he finished speaking, a Newfie stuck his face up to the window, looked around at the empty shelves and then walked over and asked, "How's she goin, b'y. I was just wonderin' what you fellas was sellin'??" One of the Torontians grinned at the other and replied, "We're selling idiots, friend", To this the Newfie responded, "Well, ya must be doin' some good business 'cause dere's only two o' ya left." ___________________________________________________
