Why did the chicken cross the road?

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.


OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

AL GORE: I invented the chicken.

 JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?

Why did the chicken cross the road?

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

COLIN POWELL: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.

I didn't include the question in the previous post.  It obviously is, "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
Sophia Bailey, a woman who eats at the same table as I do, forwards me some good stuff.   Instead of forwarding this one (it's long) I'm going to put it on this blog a few items at a time.   Whoever wrote it knows a lot about well known people and authors.
SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he's a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

 JOHN McCAIN: My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

 HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road.

I posted some new stuff on     Moved everything up and made the picture a little smaller, but still didn't get rid of the unwanted words.

I did something a little different in the latest posting on     I put NEW in boldface before what I added.   So you can scroll down to that point and read the new stuff.   When I add something new again, I'll  remove the NEW and put another ahead of what I just added.   I don't often change what has already been posted.   If I should choose to make a significant change in what was posted before, I'll tell you about it.

I made a new posting on    My picture is bigger than I would like it to be, it cuts off a little of my generation notation, and I still need to get rid of the words Company Name.   Still, it's not too bad for an amateur.   It's interesting that I'm getting emails wanting to help (at some expense) improving it, listing it on search engines like Google etc.   It's obvious that the bargain offer to purchase the domain name was expected to generate other income for them.     
Remembering that Maureen and Scott were married 13 years ago today.   It was a beautiful day, and so was the weather.   A picture of Mom and me dancing is on my desk.   We got lost on the way back to the hotel.   Scott gave me good directions, but I went by the first left turn I was supposed to make.   Mom's sense of direction was always better than mine, but it didn't help that time.   We did finally see a convenience store, and a police car was just pulling in.   They were sort of surprised to see me in a tuxedo and admitting we were lost.   Turned out we had been sort of circling and weren't too far from the hotel.

I made a posting on     You can see it if you click on the site, then click on about us.   There's a picture and some other stuff I want to take off, but you can see how the story begins.
Today I received an email offering a special price to set up a new website like the one I had before.   So I started to take the steps to do so.   It's  You can click on it if you want to see it, but I haven't made any entries there yet.   The new book I've started to write will be "Threescore and Ten Plus 25", so I can start to post it over time the same way as I did with dontsaygoodbye.    I have to relearn how to make postings at the new site.   I'll let you know when there's something new posted there.

Some of you know that Ron Simon, a semi-retired reporter, interviews veterans and writes about them.   He interviewed me last week, and his article is in today's paper.
