Many of us can recall a time when we’d go to the hardware store or the gun shop, see a rifle or shotgun we liked, purchased it, went home, then went target shooting or hunting. Indeed, I remember when I was a young married, going to the hardware store, seeing single shot, .22 caliber rifles, buying two, and taking my then-wife out for an afternoon of target shooting. I think I paid $22 for each rifle. No filling out of forms, no formalities, just paid the bill, collected the weapons, and was on my way. Later on, it was fairly common to admire someone’s .410, 12 guage or 20 guage shotgun . . . or his hunting rifle, make an offer, buy it, and go about your business. No more.
Whether it’s a rifle, shotgun or a handgun you’re thinking of, there are a few things you need to know in today’s world. California gun laws allow almost anyone to buy a firearm without a license. The only people generally prohibited from acquiring or possessing a gun are: •felons (that is, anyone convicted of any felony offense in any jurisdiction), •persons convicted of certain misdemeanor offenses, •persons who are addicted to narcotics, •persons who suffer from mental illness, and •minors (that is, anyone under 18)
As long as you don't fall into one of these categories, there are several ways that you can legally exercise your Second Amendment right to bear The Paper - 760.747.7119
In the case of a long gun, such as a rifle or shotgun, it’s a bit easier than with handguns. You have to supply appropriate ID and you have a 10 day waiting period while a background check is done on you. If you clear the background check you can come pick up your rifle or shotgun from the dealer, after the 10 days has expired and presuming you pass the background check.
This question appears to be uppermost in most people’s area of interest. The problem appears to be one of both definition and over-reaction. In fact, California has prohibited assault weapons for years; but that generally refers to automatic weapons. To even own one, let alone buy and sell them, you need a class 3 firearms license (this covers machine guns, etc., the true
assault weapons. Class 3 licenses are difficult and expensive to obtain). On a true automatic weapon, you pull the trigger and the weapon continues to fire until the trigger is released. That hasn’t been legal for years. Yet the exact same weapon, once you disable the automatic feature and make it a semi-automatic (where you pull the trigger, one bullet fires, and you have to pull the trigger each successive time you wish to fire, is, and has been for some time, legal.)

Typical weapons that resemble assault weapons are the AR-15 (one of the more popular). On this page and page three you will find photographs of a number of weapons that “look like” assault weapons but are perfectly legal in California. They are known as CASAR (California Semi Automatic Rifle) and are in compliance with California law.

To legally buy a gun of any kind you need to purchase it from a licensed firearms dealer. In the case of a handgun, the dealer will require you to
You will be given a pamphlet with the necessary information to study prior to the test. Once you’ve passed the test there is still a 10 day waiting period before you can take possession of the handgun. The dealer will charge a fee for administering the test and supplying the HSC that is not to exceed $25.
What if you have a neighbor who has a gun, offers it to you for sale, and you agree to buy it? You pay him cash money and he hands you the weapon. Done deal? Technically, no.
By law, both of you have to go to a dealer to memorialize the sale, leave the weapon for the 10 days background check, then you may claim your weapon.
Quite often, however, that doesn’t happen. There are sales or transfers of weapons between two consenting parties that are never reported,

If you prefer to carry a concealed weapon, instead of "openly carrying" one, the only way to do so (legally anyhow) is with a valid CCW (Carry a Concealed Weapon) permit.

Quietly arriving home, the husband and cabby tip-toe into the bedroom. The husband switches on the lights, yanks the blanket back, and there is his wife in bed with another man!

are issued by the San Diego County Sheriff, or the chief or head of your local municipal police department, if you are outside of San Diego County, based upon a showing that
•you are of good moral character, •you have good cause to justify the permit, •you are a resident in the county, or that you spend a substantial amount of time at your place of business or employment which is located in the county, and •you have completed an approved firearms' training class. Good cause is an individual issue; however, if applying for business purposes, proof that you are a legitimate and fully credentialed business will be required as well as having to demonstrate that good cause for carrying a firearm exists. The same applies for those wanting to apply strictly for personal protection; the required documentation will be discussed at the time of the initial first interview, additional documentation may be requested. Approved Firearms’ Training Instructors
There are too many to list in this article. Better to use Google or some similar search engine and type in: “Approved firearm instructors in San Diego County.” You’ll be shown page after page of licensed instructors. Call them, find out their fees, (they may vary) and inquire about an appointment. Bottom line: You must demonstrate your shooting prowess on a shooting range, under the direction of a certified instructor, and prove you can hit the target.
If you receive a valid CCW license, California gun law authorizes you legally to carry a loaded, concealed weapon as long as you abide by the terms and conditions outlined in your permit. Each applicant will be interviewed by License Division Staff to determine initial eligibility. Applications accepted will be individually investi-
More rifles that look like assault rifles . . . but that are non-automatic and totally legal in California gated to determine residency, moral character, and good cause; anyone on any form of probation is automatically disqualified. There are four issuing categories in which the County of San Diego issues concealed weapons. Applicants will be required to submit documentation to support and demonstrate their need for any of the categories. The categories are: • Protected law enforcement • Personal protection (w/documented threats) • Security • Business
Applications must be submitted to Sheriff’s License Division in person. You can call the Sheriff’s License Division at 858-974-2020 to schedule an appointment for your initial interview. The first part of your interview will determine your need and the required documentation. Appointments may be set between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m, Monday through Friday. You will need to allow an hour for the interview. You will be given additional information and instructions to bring with you for your second interview. The Department of Justice and San Diego County Sheriff’s Department are both involved in the processing of this application, each agency requires certain fees. Fees will be collected at the end of your second interview. The recent passage of California Assembly Bill 144 (as embodied in California Penal Code Section 26350) has since dealt a major blow to the right to bear arms in California. As the law stands
today, unloaded open carry of handguns is illegal.
One more hurdle: Once you acquire a weapon, unless you can prove you have a safe for your weapon, the dealer is required to sell you a trigger lock/guard that keeps unauthorized users, including children, from accessing your weapon. INITIAL FEES
Cash or check made payable to San Diego Sheriff’s Department for $12.63 (the remainder $50.51 to be submitted at the time of issuance) plus a money order made payable to the Department of Justice as shown: Standard (Two-year) license $93.00 money order Judicial (Three-year) license $115.00 money order Reserve Peace Officer (Fouryear) - $137.00 money order RENEWAL FEES
A single payment in the form of cash or check made payable to San Diego Sheriff’s Department shall be submitted for renewal of a CCW permit as shown below: Standard (Two-year) license $73.52 Judicial (Three-year) license $95.52 Reserve Peace Officer (Fouryear) - $117.52
Fees are subject to change as allowed by law. They are processing fees and as such are not refundable regardless of the decision made on the application. If there are other questions, please call Sheriff’s License Division at 858-974-2020. Market Demand
Gunshop owners nationwide and California, in particular,
In fact, there is not likely to be much of a change in federal or California law in terms of acquiring weapons. The chief problem for gun owners is the possibility that California and/or the feds will opt to restrict the size of magazines you may use in your rifles. That issue remains to be resolved. We spoke with Bud Duncan of Duncan Gunworks in San Marcos and he confirms heavy traffic in his store. Many weapons are on back order and sales are brisk. Duncan’s dad started the business back in the late 40’s, Bud took the business over from his dad in the early 1970’s. Seldom has he ever seen the business as brisk as it is today due to the keen interest in gun acquisition and the protection of 2nd amendment rights. The question of 2nd amendment rights has come front and center as a result of recent political controversies that developed as a result of the tragic shooting of innocent children back in Connecticcut.
Governmental critics argue the government is overreacting and trying to blame weapons instead of blaming the deranged user of any weapon.
The critics also argue all the regulations in the world did not keep Attorney General Eric Holder from authorizing the “Fast and Furious’ operational plan that resulted allowing thousands of these guns to go south of the Mexican border . . . and then showing up with dead people around them, innocent people, including women and children. They fear that presidential “Executive Orders” will take away 2nd Amendment rights.
Indeed, this very controversy is what appears to be fueling astronomical demands at gun shops locally as well as nationwide.
Page 4 - January 24, 2013 Carlsbad Police Arrest Driver With Weapon
On Wednesday, January 16th at approximately 1:40 a.m., City of Carlsbad police officers responded to the area of Magnolia Avenue and Village Drive regarding a possible intoxicated person in a vehicle with a firearm.
The victim, 56 year old Kenneth Jeters, told police that an acquaintance of his, 37 year old Brent Manion, had taken his 2000 Ford F150 pickup and was in possession of a loaded pump-action shotgun. Jeters told police that he believed Manion was under the influence of a controlled substance, possibly methamphetamine. Officers arrived on scene and were in the process of approaching the vehicle when Manion fled the scene. Officers pursued the vehicle south through Carlsbad, eventually onto Carlsbad Boulevard and south into Encinitas. At one point, the vehicles approached speeds greater than 100 miles per hour.
San Diego County Sheriff’s Department deputies assisting in the pursuit deployed spike strips in the area of Santa Fe Drive and San Elijo Avenue in Encinitas. Manion crossed the strips damaging the vehicle’s tires. Next, Manion exited the roadway and tried to drive north on the railroad tracks in the area of Encinitas Boulevard. The vehicle came to rest on the tracks. Manion tried to flee on foot but was arrested. Officers found a loaded pump shotgun inside the vehicle. No injuries were reported.
Manion was evaluated for Driving Under the Influence of a controlled substance and was booked into the Vista Detention Facility for Felony Evading, Auto Theft, Driving Under the Influence, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

about 8:40 a.m, the Escondido Police Department SWAT team served two search warrants in the City of Escondido. The warrants were served in the 900 Block of Milane Lane and the 900 Block of North Fig Street. Both warrants were associated with an armed robbery case that occurred on December 8, 2012. The SWAT team secured both locations and detectives conducted searches for evidence of the previously mentioned robbery. The warrants were served and the locations were secured without incident. Eduardo Arguelles, 22 years old, of Escondido, was arrested at the first location in relation to robbery. He was transported to the Escondido Police Department and then booked at the Vista Detention Facility, charged with Robbery and Conspiracy to Commit Robbery. Arguelles is being charged with the robbery of a 7-11 store located in the 700 Block of N. Midway. During the
robbery, Arguelles allegedly used a handgun to steal cash and lottery tickets. This investigation is ongoing and no further information is available. Grand Opening of Escondido Technology Center

(He was, in fact, not old enough to go under the rules. Kids had to be at least 10 and have parental permission to go. I think Junior started going with us when he was nine . . . maybe even eight. So I broke a couple rules).
and that he had come so far and was now a responsible businessman (with a family, 5, 3, 2 and an infant) . . . made me very, very, very proud.
Evelyn and I went there for a pizza pie tonight (and an order of spaghetti). As I feared, Junior would not accept payment. I said, "Okay, well, here's a tip then," and laid a $20 bill on the counter. He wouldn't take that either. We talked over old times, got caught up on the family, and refreshed our friendship.

The Medical Examiner says 30year old Andrew Kyle Olson, a pedestrian who was struck and killed on state Route 76 in Oceanside last week, was an accident.
Olson was struck about 3:50 a.m. Thursday at North Santa Fe Avenue. Oceanside police said Olson had apparently stepped into the right turn lane from the south shoulder of state Route 76 and into the path of an oncoming vehicle. The driver stopped after the crash. The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Olson’s death an accident. Area Code 442 Confusing Some North County
Area residents used to 760 as the area code of choice for
North County are becoming confused over the new 442 Area Code recently introduced in North County. The largest single user of this 442 Area Code is the new 11story Palomar Medical Center, which opened last August in western Escondido.
Hospital spokesman Leonel Sanchez said last week that all 5,000 phone numbers assigned to the hospital begin with 442, forcing people to dial the unfamiliar code when trying to call patients, doctors and other staff members. Since hospital officials wanted the same three-digit prefix to all numbers for the hospital, they were assigned 442 numbers as the area code. It

I understand humor. I get that some jokes are meant as gentle jests. But never, in all my life have I read anything as blatantly racist and, frankly, ignorant. as your 'Star Trek' joke. (pg 2, Jan 10th) Not only does it imply that there will be no 'Muslims' in our future (what... do we nuke 25% of earth's population?), but it stupidly lumps together countries and calls them 'Muslim.'

“Would You Invest $37 to Find Out if there’s a Way to Get You Pain-Free and Healthy Again?*…” Dear friend,
The typical person that comes to my office has been to many doctors already. Many have spent thousands on exams and procedures, and many are no better than when they started.
So, today, I’m offering you a way to see if perhaps I can help. Very often I can. Let me tell you a little about me before I go on to explain my offer.
Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever.
At the time, I’m enjoying my last summer before high school, and life is good. But then, it happens… I develop a knife-like pain in my mid-back from a condition known as ‘scoliosis.’ In my case it comes on suddenly. The pain in my back gets so intense that I can’t take a deep breath, and sometimes I can’t even think straight or stand up straight. The shooting pain sometimes wakes me up in the middle of the night. I’m afraid that I’ll lose my position on the team if the disability continues. After watching and waiting if my spine would get more crooked and considering surgery (that’s the only option, according to the doctor) I decide against it. But, listen to this…
A friend of mine convinces me to give his doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then ‘adjusts’ my spine (he tells me that there’s pressure on the nerve in my mid-back). The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and shortly, I can stand up straight again. Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it happened!” Let me tell you about Rebecca, my recent assistant. For the past 10 years, she suffered with severe back pain. Her parents took her to specialists but she didn’t find any answers. She was taking pain medication
even if you’ve been frustrated before…
every day for the past 3 years but she still suffered. At age 28, she started chiropractic care here, and her pain is so much better that she can now hike 9 miles in a day whereas 6 weeks before her care started it was a chore to walk 6 blocks.
My wife Kim suffered with severe neck pain for 12 years. Her doctor had recommended medication or that she see a chiropractor but in her native country it was too far to travel. Today, her problems are a whole lot better than they used to be.
For the past eight years, people from Rancho Bernardo and the surrounding area have come to see me with scoliosis. They also come to me with their: • Headaches • Migraines • Chronic pain • Neck pain • Shoulder/Arm Pain • Whiplash from car accidents • Backaches • Numbness in limbs • Athletic injuries
take the credit. I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. Of course, all people respond differently to care, but we get terrific results. It’s as simple as that! Chiropractic is probably the most misunderstood health care profession there is. It is about working with, and enhancing the body’s natural healing abilities. Chiropractors find and remove interference in the nerve system, which allows the body to respond better. As misunderstood as it is, the studies speak for themselves, like the Virginia study that showed that over 95% of patients who saw a chiropractor were satisfied with their results. That’s just incredible!
Here’s what some of my patients had to say:
“I have been able to stop taking pain medication.” (Cherie S.-Carlsbad) “My headaches are completely gone now!” (Kathy W.-Rancho Bernardo)
“From the very first visit I could tell a dramatic improvement with my lower back.” (Patrick K.-Rancho Bernardo)
I’m blessed that people often thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really
Great care at a great fee… Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. I’ve been taking care of seniors to 3-year olds in the RB area for over 7 years now. I just have this special offer to help more people who need care.
My assistant is Hewan (Hay-Wahn) and she is a really great person. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called PIETREK SPINAL CARE and it is at 16959 Bernardo Center Drive #215 (we are across from the fire station). Our phone number is 858-676-1218. Call Hewan or me today for an appointment. We can help you. Thank you and God Bless.

less days in the hospital, 62% less outpatient surgeries, and 85% less costs for prescription drugs. Special Offer- Look, I know you’re smart. You want to get to the cause of your problem, and not just cover it up with drugs. When you are one of the first 20 people to call and schedule a new patient exam (by February 1, 2013) you’ll receive that entire exam for $37. That’s for a complete exam … surface EMG muscle scan and X-rays (if necessary)….the whole ball of wax, and there’s no hidden fees. But, call right away because we expect to be flooded with calls as this exam normally costs $165. Again, there’s only 20 of these slots, so don’t miss out (by law, this offer excludes Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries).

Tens of millions of Americans no longer have health insurance, and those who do have found that their benefits are greatly reduced. That’s where chiropractic comes in. A seven-year study compared costs of people seeing medical providers vs. alternative providers (like chiropractors). Overall the patients seeing alternative providers had 60% less hospitalizations, 59%

You will be seen within minutes of your appointment. *P.P.P.S. I want to be clear that no one can (including me) can ever guarantee a cure for any condition. Of course, all people respond differently to care.

The 442 area code is an overlay code instead of a separate area code split out from the existing 760 area code. State officials soon recognized that they would soon run out of numbers available within the 760 area code so they had to make the overlay code available; this was more efficient, they say, then splitting the districts served into two separate area codes.

The cost, however, has gone up but will not provide for any additional services. The new contract will cost the city $14.55 million in the first year . . . which would cover operations costs, an umbrella category that, in turn, supports patrol, traffic, homicide, juvenile intervention, and other services. Last year’s budget was $14.38 million.
In its second year the city’s cost would rise to $15.24 million, $15.70 million in its third year, $16.17 million in its fourth year and $16.69 million in its fifth year. In addition to these costs the city would be liable for another 2.8 percent to 4 percent to each year’s overall cost, to provide for sheriff’s retirement cost.
San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond said there have been no discussions about the city starting its own police force. He feels the increases “are reasonable” given that the city has been “very happy with the Sheriff’s Department.” He noted that the city’s law enforcement costs have remained about the same the past couple of years. By contracting with the county agency, San Marcos avoids high and unexpected liability costs, Desmond said. Cities with their own police forces are exposed to lawsuits involving accusations against officers. Home Lost to Fire, but Owner’s Dog Survived

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Viva Las Vegas, The CES Part Two.
Last week we noted that the Consumer Electronic Show with 2 million square feet, 156,000 attendees, and over 3000 exhibits was NOT open to the public. Several readers commented that it seems strange that the world’s largest consumer electronics show was closed to consumers. There is a reason. CES is just the latest iteration in the evolution of technology expos. From the late 80’s until 2004 COMDEX ruled the roost. Prior to that it was the NCC (National Computer Conference 1973-1987). We’ve been along for the entire ride. First as an engineer (1965-75) for Systems Engineering Labs and Westinghouse and later as head of operations for NCR, Packard Bell, United Telecom and a couple of others and finally, since 1995, with front row seats as owner-
Budget Should Consider Long Term Goals
The 2013-2014 state budget was released earlier this month. In contrast to past years when California had multi-billion dollar deficits, this year’s budget challenges are greatly reduced. Unfortunately spending is still increasing, and there is little indication that the legislature will restrain its habit of overspending.
Without a large deficit to address, the legislature and the Governor should focus on the long term budget problems. Past California budgets have not generated reserves for future funding needs. This year must be different. The state’s debt remains high and needs to be paid down. Improvements to our state infrastructure are long overdue, and the state’s unfunded
operators of The Computer Factory. Hardly anyone still active in the business goes back as far as we do and even fewer can write about it from first hand experience. Our tired old eyes have seen it all and it allows us unique insight into the evolutionary process that governs electronics technology.
Early NCCs were playgrounds for mainframe makers IBM, Amdahl and “the bunch” (Burroughs, Univac, NCR, CDC and Honeywell). In the late 70s general purpose “min-computers” began to replace “mainframes” and companies like DEC, Data General, PerkinElmer, Sequent and Prime stepped up. In the early 80s powerful “workstations” from Apollo, Silicon Graphics, Harris and Sun Microsystems took center stage. We attended the NCC in the summer of 1982 at the Astrodome in Houston. It was the last of the quiet little “insider” NCCs before the November 1982 bombshell release of the IBM PC. The 1983 (Anaheim) and 1984 (Las Vegas) NCC drew over 100,000 attendees, 3000 exhibitors and was open to the public. PCs from the likes of Apple, Compaq, IBM, Commodore, Atari and related peripheral gadgets dominated the shows. In 1985 the NCC attracted fewer than 40,000 attendees and 800 exhibitors, a victim of the poor economy and competition from COMDEX (computer dealers exhibition). The NCC folded in 1987. COMDEX had been around since the seventies. Their semi annual expos known as “Geek Week” were relatively small. In the late 80s the fall
pension liability is unacceptable.
Long term goals should not be overshadowed by the bill factory. During session, legislators will propose new legislation that induces unnecessary spending, when our primary focus should be on eliminating debt, reducing spending, and auditing government programs.
The 2013-2014 budget postpones debt service payments to allow for spending. This is the wrong approach. Taxpayers expect legislators to be responsible with the state budget. Let’s get to work.

COMDEX established itself in Las Vegas and opened its expo to the public. The growing PC business with rising stars like Dell, Gateway, Packard Bell and thousands of software and peripheral companies attracted hordes. COMDEX peaked in 1999 attracting nearly 2500 exhibitors and 200,000 attendees. As PCs became a commodity, newer technologies like game boxes, MP3, home entertainment, Internet and cellular products and tablets along with associated gadgets and applications began to grab our attention. COMDEX folded in 2003. In 1998 The CES (Consumer Electronic Show) initiated its once-ayear winter Las Vegas expo. With a scope much broader than COMDEX’s narrow PC focus, it soon eclipsed its rival and has been growing in scope and attendance ever since. Today the CES
focuses on advance electronic technologies for all aspects of life and work. The show features new product concepts and technologies that are often years away from consumer availability. Exposing manufacturers and designers to emerging technologies and applications enable them plan new products that will incorporate the new technologies. One indication of how far removed the CES is from PC technology might be to note some companies who don’t exhibit at CES like Dell, HP, Apple and Microsoft. The CES is a technology bazaar where designers, inventers, engineers, marketers, manufacturers and buyers meet to see what opportunities technology holds for their products.

narian, Shadowridge Veterinary Hospital.
Spyder survived but, even today, is sill badly scarred from bad burns. A dog who almost died in a house fire is on her way to recovery. The Saint Bernard, Great Dane mix has been recovering since early January.
Lori Schwab saw her beloved Spyder for only the third time since the tragic fire on December 27th. Schwab adopted Spyder when she was just a puppy and now the dog, who is about 4 years old, has extensive bandaging on her after surviving a devastating fire one December evening. The fire destroyed Schwab's home in Ocean Beach, but she got out safely. Spyder was badly burned in the fire and has a lot more healing to do. Her skin is still exposed after a number of surgeries. "She had third-degree burns over about 25 to 30 percent of her body on her left side," said chief veterinarian Dr. Jenny Schiebert. Schiebert has been treating Spyder since she arrived at Shadowridge on Jan. 4. "Not once did she ever whimper, whine, growl, lift a lip... she is just a loving soul," said Dr. Schiebert. Spyder still needs several extensive surgeries before going home.

out on her face. Melted the Old One's heart right away.
We sat down and commenced to play and/or explore grandpa's house. Kenny told me, "y'know, I know I'm gonna have to start disciplining her . . . 'cause I don't want her getting hurt. But I'm not sure I can do it. Yesterday she was standing on a chair and waving her hands like she was gonna hit somebody . . . and she might, had she been in nursery school; and she might have lost her balance and fell off the chair. Andi (Alex's mother) finally told her she'd have to go sit in the "naughty chair."
Alex dutifully went to the 'naughty chair' and had a seat. She looked down at the floor with a sullen look, some might call it a frown, on her face . . . for about a minute. Then she looked up at Kenny and her eye's sparkled and she grinned. "I just totally lost it," said Kenny. "I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. That little imp. Looking at me with that big grin of hers . . . no way I'll ever be able to discipline her. Probably the same with you. You probably won't be able to discipline

(I thought to myself . . ."Granpa's aren't here to discipline their lil granddaughters. We're here to spoil them rotten and to love 'em.")
Another time Andi told Alex she was gonna have to sit in the 'naughty chair' for two minutes.
After about 20 seconds she looked up, smiled, and said, "all done?" The little tyke makes us laugh. And she makes my day whenever Kenny brings her around. Great big belly laughs for both Kenny and Grandpa this morning. Tickled our funny bones.
But, as I said, maybe you had to be there. •••••

"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!" So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.
The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother. "Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"
"I don't want to talk to you,” the old Muslim woman says. "You are not my son!" "I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."
"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and
