Aug. 2nd, 2001:
A good newspaper should simply have all the news fit to be printed, not printed simply to fit. (Hmmm ... think of those tabloids!)
Aug. 15th, 2001:
Good fences make good neighbors but, if I were a jewel thief, good neighbors might also make good fences! (Shhh, don't tell, OK.)
Sept. 1st, 2001:
Whereas political parties may have many principles, political principals certainly have many parties. (And then some! ;-)
Sept. 8th, 2001:
It's great to be the life and soul of the party, but is it not better to be party to the soul of life? (Life is what you make it, after all.)
Sept. 17th, 2001:
To be heard, the herd is not where to be! (What was that song ... "Go your own way" ?)
Sept. 25th, 2001:
A man annoys a woman in two ways: first, by his absence when he's present and second, by his presents when he's absent. (Hmmm ... like between a rock and hard place?)
Oct. 5th, 2001:
The philosopher's puzzle: The more I think I learn, the less will I know. The more I think I know, the less will I learn. (OK, who's for Knowledge ... anyone?)
Oct. 14th, 2001:
Which is more important: Answer the question ... or question the answer? (Whew! Why all the questions, anyway??)
Oct. 28th, 2001:
If Time heals all wounds, does it also wound all heels? (Well, if the shoe doesn't fit ... or, should that be: if the shoe does fit?)
Nov. 3rd, 2001:
Too many roomers about a house may result in a few rumors too; there again, too many rumors about a house may result in too few roomers! (Oh ... is that like Animal House meets Bates Motel?)
Nov. 11th, 2001:
With the rites of marriage, couples enjoy certain rights; only later, maybe those rights become merely a marriage of rites.... (Ho-hum, when boredom sets in, the set becomes boring ... or somethin'!)
Nov. 18th, 2001:
In all your amorous adventures, when you're wanting to find the right moment ... you may, in fact, find it wanting. (So, s/he who hesitates is ... maybe thankful, yes? ;-)
Nov. 25th, 2001:
If you're talking turkey, don't get caught eating crow — you won't have much to crow about, if you look like a turkey, too! (As somebody said before ... say what you mean and mean what you say, yes?)
Nov. 30th, 2001:
There are those who complain about not getting their due, and think it's a world of injustice; perhaps the real injustice of the world is simply those who don't get what's due to them. (Count your blessings, and so forth....)
Dec. 8th, 2001:
A company is manned by the keepers it knows, or perhaps a company keeps the men that it knows? (But, as you know, a man is known by the company he keeps ... hmmm?)
Dec. 14th, 2001:
With so much temptation all around, I'm sure the road of good intentions must have been paved in hell! ( So hard to stay on the straight and narrow, yes?)
Dec. 22nd, 2001:
It's often difficult backing out of messy politics, especially when you're out backing the wrong "horse". (Horse trading is only good when you're trading real horses, I think.)
Dec. 31st, 2001:
The last days of the year can produce a daze that lasts! (Just hope it doesn't go on too long ... I'd like to see the end of the daze, y'know.)
So ... please do just click here to get Volume 1, absolutely FREE.
