Is the death penalty a joke? Despite spending more than any other state on its implementation and administration, California today is saddled with a death penalty law that can be described only as completely dysfunctional. We have the longest death row in America, with approximately 700 inmates awaiting execution. Typically, the lapse of time between sentence and execution is twenty-five years, twice the national average, and is growing wider each year. One hundred nineteen inmates have spent more than twenty years on California’s death row. Most of them will certainly die before they are ever executed.

3 former California governors back proposed death penalty initiative By Linda Deutsch AP Special Correspondent LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three former California governors announced a proposed ballot initiative in February designed to speed up the state’s lengthy death penalty process. Former Govs. George Deukmejian, Pete Wilson and Gray Davis said they were launching a signature-gathering effort for the measure that would limit appeals available to death row inmates, remove the prisoners from special death row housing, and require them to work at prison jobs in order to pay restitution to victims. The former governors, appearing with law enforcement officials at a news conference, made it clear they want executions to begin as soon as possible. There are more than 700 prisoners on California’s death row. “Old age should not be the leading cause of death on death row,” former Gov. Pete Wilson said. They agreed the death penalty system is crippled by waste and inefficiency. “We all know the death penalty system is broken at the appellate level,” said former Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley. His predecessor in that job, Gil

Garcetti, is leading the opposition to the initiative and was a proponent of Proposition 34, the 2012 ballot measure that would have repealed the death penalty in California. The vote was 48 percent in favor and 52 percent opposed, one of the closest votes ever on a death penalty referendum. A statement from the former governors said “Californians overwhelmingly reaffirmed their support for the death penalty” with the vote on Prop. 34. Executions have been halted since 2006 because of lawsuits in federal and state courts over changing a three-drug lethal-injection method that had been used to carry out death sentences. Asked about the availability of drugs to carry out executions, the governors said they could not comment and that would be an issue for the California Department of Corrections. Two relatives of victims spoke and decried the length of time it takes to resolve a death penalty appeal. Phyllis Loya said it took four years for an attorney to be assigned to a man convicted of killing her son. Davis said it can take 10 years before a federal application for review of a death penalty case is resolved and another 10 years to clear state appel-



late courts. San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael Ramos, representing the California District Attorneys Association, said if the initiative passes there would be no frivolous appeals and the state would see enormous fiscal savings. With the initiative, backers want to bypass automatic appeals to the California Supreme Court and instead distribute them to other appeals courts unless it is necessary for a case to be heard by the high court. Absent from the press conference were former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and current Gov. Jerry Brown.


Cont’d. from Page 3 Since restoration of the death penalty in 1978, the leading cause of death on California’s death row has been death by natural causes (57),followed by suicides (20), other causes (6), and executions (13). For all practical purposes, a sentence of death in California is a sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. The only

Brown is personally opposed to the death penalty but has said he would abide by the law. He declined comment on the proposed initiative Thursday. Garcetti called the initiative a misguided effort and predicted legal challenges would take decades to resolve. Anna Zamora of the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California later issued a statement saying: “This flawed proposal will only make matters worse. It will create more delays and overburden our already strained court system. Worst of all, it will greatly increase the risk that California could execute an innocent person.” difference is that the individual serves the life sentence on death row, while the state forks out millions of dollars to process appeals and habeas corpus proceedings. Additionally, the cost of confinement is quadruple what it would be if the individual was serving the life sentence in a maximum security prison, where those sentenced to life imprisonment normally serve their sentences. How did we create this mess?

Pros and cons of the death penalty By Kathy Gill

Theory of DeterrencePro/Con

There are two common arguments in support of capital punishment: that of deterrence and that of retribution. According to Gallup, most Americans believe that the death penalty is a deterrent to homicide, which helps them justify their support for capital punishment. Other Gallup research suggests that most Americans would not support capital punishment if it did not deter murder. Does capital punishment deter violent crimes? In other words, will a potential murderer consider the possibility that they might be convicted and face the death penalty before committing a murder? The answer appears to be "no." Social scientists have mined empirical data searching for the definitive answer on deterrence since the early 20th century. And "most deterrence research has found that the death penalty has virtually the same effect as long imprisonment on homicide rates." Studies suggesting otherwise (notably writings of Isaac Ehrlich from the 1970s) have been, in general, criticized for methodological errors. Ehrlich's

work was also criticized by the National Academy of Sciences - but it is still cited as a rationale for deterrence. A 1995 survey of police chiefs and country sheriffs found that most ranked the death penalty last in a list of six options that might deter violent crime. Their top two picks? Reducing drug abuse and fostering an economy that provides more jobs. Data on murder rates seem to discredit the deterrence theory as well. The region of the county with the greatest number of executions — the South — is the region with the largest murder rates. For 2010, the average murder rate in states with the death penalty was 4,78; the average murder rate of the 18 states without the death penalty was 4.13. Thus deterrence, which is offered as a reason to support capital punishment ("pro"), doesn't wash.



Theory of RetributionPro/Con

In Gregg v Georgia, the Supreme Court wrote that "[t]he instinct for retribution is part of the nature of man..." The theory of retribution rests, in part, on the Old Testament and its call for "an eye for an eye." Proponents PENALTY, cont’d. on Page 25

Making a ‘move book’ helps kids Moves are hard, especially for children. To help make this time of transition easier, FOCUS encourages parents to help their kids create a move book. A move book is just what it sounds like, a story about a move; more specifically it is a story about your move. These books are not just a simple story, they are also a way to communicate with your kids about the move, provide them foreknowledge of what is going to happen, offer them a sense of control, and add a little bit of fun to an often boring process.

Creating a move book is fun and easy, simply follow these steps: 1. Move books can be created using any medium. They can be written, typed, drawn, or collaged. 2. Start by adding in some basic facts about your child and your family. “My name is Lily and I have 4 people

in my family. Right now we live in Colorado but very soon we will be moving to Georgia.” 3. Add in any details you have about the timing of the move. You can list out the information or draw a calendar right into the book. 4. Write or draw out the sequence of events that will happen during the move. This activity provides the same benefit as a routine; in that your child will

know what comes next. This is especially important when it’s not possible to keep your normal routine. “First, we will pack up all our stuff. Next, movers will come and load it all up into a big van. Then we will get in our car and start driving to our new



home. We get to stop in Nebraska and see Grandma along the way…” 5. Once you have spelled out the sequence of events, it is time to add information about the place you are moving to. There are no limits to what kind of inStrengthening formation you the Home Base can add. You can add specific information about what your house will look like, or what school your child will be attending. If you don’t know those details yet you can just put in information about the weather, the scenery, and anything in your new location that your child might look forward to. 6. Somewhere in the book it is also helpful to talk about feelings. First, you can describe how you feel about the move, and talk about how other people might feel when they move. Then, if your child is comfortable doing so, you can add in their feelings about the move. It is important for your child to voice both positive and negative feelings about the move; this will help them understand that you can have several different feelings about the same event. It is also a chance for you to talk to them about healthy ways to deal with uncomfortable feelings, like taking a deep breath or hugging their favorite stuffed animal. 7. Once you have created your book, make sure to read it regularly with

your child so that the information really sinks in. Reading the book regularly also provides a chance for your child to talk and ask questions about the move. Remember that this book is a work in progress, your child can always add in new feelings they might be having about the move or new things that they are looking forward to. Even after the move, it can be helpful to add information about the parts of the move that may have gone differently than they expected or to make a list of their favorite things about their new home. FOCUS (Families OverComing Under Stress) is a resiliency-building program of the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED). FOCUS is an eight-session training program for military families that is grounded in more than two decades of research and experience serving families dealing with stress and changes. FOCUS is specifically adapted for the needs of military couples, children, and families and provides training in core resilience skills.

Getting ‘placebo’ sleep Simply thinking you got better sleep makes your brain work better

By Rose Eveleth, You’re probably aware of the placebo effect—taking a pill of any sort can make a person feel better, even if that pill has no active ingredients. But it turns out that the placebo effect doesn’t just work with gel caps. It’s possible to get placebo exercise and even placebo sleep. In this study, researchers gave participants a short lecture about how getting more and better sleep improves cognitive function. They also told them that during the normal person’s night of sleep, about 20 to 25 percent of it is REM sleep, the kind that helps the brain most. The researchers then attached sensors to the subjects and told them the sensors would measure pulse, heart rate and REM while the subjects slept. (This was a lie.) Some of the subjects were later told that they got 16.2 percent REM sleep, while the others were told they got 28.7 percent REM sleep. (This was also a lie.) The researchers then gave their subjects a test called the Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test. The test is simple enough: it asks people to add a bunch of numbers together. Eric Horowitz at the blog “Peer-reviewed by my neurons” explains the results: PLACEBO, cont’d. on Page 26

How to avoid every common mistake when booking a flight By Peter Greenberg (Peter Greenberg is the travel editor for CBS News. This originally appeared on As the Travel Editor for CBS News, people expect that I spend weeks, even months, researching the process and logistics of travel. And I do. But what about airfares? I only spend minutes. It’s not just that I understand what makes a reasonable or crazy fare for each route. I also know WHEN to book. There is a science to airfare: The day, time of day, and the time of the month that you book matter.

How far in advance

The number one mistake I see most travelers make is to book too early. Unless you are planning travel for hightraffic days, like Christmas or July 4, you stand the best chance for the lowest possible fare 45 days out for domestic travel and 60 days out for international. Outside of that 45-day window most airline computers aren’t programmed to give you any kind of a deal. It’s all about computer modeling—the airline knows, for example, how many people flew on Flight 405 to Cleveland last February, and in February of 2012 as well. They make their projections of the load for this February based on that. If you book too far in advance, you’ll almost always pay a higher fare, and then, if the prices later drop, you can’t take advantage of the lower price without incurring the standard change fee—which will easily erase any possible savings. When I am in the appropriate booking window for my travel dates, I aim to choose off-peak days, especially over the holiday season. Flying midweek is

often an effortless way to save money, and that’s when you’ll often find emptier and cheaper seats. Now that I’ve narrowed down when I want to travel, I follow a few timetested rule about when to book. There is a specific time if you want to get inexpensive flights.

Precise time to buy

Buy your ticket on Wednesday at 1 am, just one hour after Tuesday midnight. But remember, that’s midnight in the time zone where the airline is based (know when to call for all U.S. airlines). Why Tuesday? Most low airfares seem to appear between Sunday night and Monday night. And then, when people book those fares, they have 24 hours in which to purchase them. At midnight Tuesday, all the discount fares that weren’t purchased come flooding back into the airline’s computer systems. And that’s when you strike. You can’t do this online…You need to have a conversation with a human being at the airline. It’s also how you book the best economy seats without paying extra.

Some other fare rules I try to follow:

If possible, I aim to book flights after the 7th of every month, as booking is busier right after payday on the first and 15th. Whenever possible, I shop for fares on one computer and then clear my cookies or book on another computer altogether. If you want to take it a step further, go to a different location. While there’s no proof or hard evidence, there is growing anecdotal evidence that suggests airlines are tracking your behavior online, and potentially even tracking IP addresses, and prices could go up for flights that are searched frequently.

Thousands beg company to give medication to sick boy By Kim Painter USA Today A Virginia family’s plea to get an unapproved medication for a 7-year-old cancer survivor with a life-threatening illness has led thousands of people to contact the small North Carolina company that makes the drug. The family of Josh Hardy says he needs a medication made by Chimerix, of Durham, N.C., to fight off a viral infection he developed after a recent bone-marrow transplant. “We’re trying to save our son,” says Josh’s dad, Todd Hardy, who is with him at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. He and his wife, Aimee, are urging supporters, on www. and in news stories, to pressure the company to provide an antiviral drug called brincidofovir. The company has already turned down multiple requests from Josh’s doctors. The case illustrates the ethical, medical and financial quandaries that surround so-called compassionate use — the use of medications that have not been approved by the Food and Drug

Administration but are in earlier stages of development. FDA rules allow companies to provide such drugs to some patients under certain circumstances. Since Thursday, thousands of people have emailed, called or otherwise contacted Chimerix to ask the company to make their drug available to Josh, company president and CEO Kenneth Moch said Monday. But Moch says the company can’t say yes to them – because that would mean saying yes to many more simi-


lar patients and draining the company of resources it needs to complete a formal study of the drug, seek FDA approval and potentially help many more future patients. “We have great compassion for this family,” Moch says. “But this is not just about a single boy.” The 54-employee company receives “many, many requests” for compassionate use of the only drug it has in clinical testing, he says. It can only say yes to people who meet a couple of strict criteria – those who have been on the drug in a previous trial and newborns with herpes simplex virus, he says. The company is about to start a trial in such babies. Moch says the company would also make the drug available to smallpox victims in a bioterror outbreak. Josh doesn’t meet any of those criteria, he says, and the company has no current study for children with his infection. Its only ongoing study is in adults with a different viral infection. A broader compassionate-use program ended two years ago, Moch says. The company says it has provided the drug to 430 compassionate-use patients in all.

Todd Hardy says doctors at St. Jude thought of brincidofovir because they tried it in children in a previous study. They are seeking it for Josh, he says, because the antiviral drug he is getting now to fight off an adenovirus infection has damaged his kidneys. “Our doctor said ‘This drug will cure and save your son,’ “ he says.


“It’s always a long shot that it will help and not make things worse,” Caplan says.

In a statement, St. Jude said that the hospital makes requests for compassionate use of unapproved medications “with thoughtful and diligent care.” In this case, the hospital says, the drug company “has been unable to accommodate multiple requests made by St. Jude doctors and senior leadership” so the hospital “will continue state-of-theart treatment.” Medical ethicist Arthur Caplan, a professor at New York University Langone Medical Center, says he understands the viewpoint of both the family and the drug company. “I have huge sympathy for the family. I think they are right to try and see what they can get for their child,” he says. But, he says, the company is in a position shared by many small pharmaceutical companies with limited resources and worried investors. Dedicating staff, time and money to compassionate-use requests can slow down a push for a drug’s approval, he says, and expose a company to added risks if people end up harmed by their experimental drugs outside of formal trials. He says it’s also important to remember that doctors and patients can’t know what they are getting with an experimental drug that has not gone through the FDA approval process.

But Todd Hardy, a custom home builder from Fredericksburg, Va., says he is convinced the drug remains his son’s best shot at getting the three wishes he had his mother write on a board near his hospital bed in anticipation of his 8th birthday on March 31. “He wants to drink whatever he wants, he wants to be able to walk by himself and he wants to get out of the hospital.”


Just as we were sending the March 15 issue to press, we received word that after days of pleading with drug company executives, Josh Hardy's parents got what they'd been praying for: a chance to get medicine that could help their son survive. The Chimerix pharmaceutical company said Tuesday that the ailing 7-year-old will receive medicine that doctors hope will help him when he becomes the first patient in a new trial set to start Wednesday.

Red Flag Tanker Flight

Right, F-16 Falcon from Colorado National Air Guard coming in for refueling. Below, F-16 Fighting Falcons from Shaw AFB. Bottom, KC-135 ready for take off.

By Douglas Aguillard As anyone who is into Military Aviation knows, the Red Flag exercise is held several times a year at Nellis Air Force Base, just north of Las Vegas, NV. It is probably the most media-covered exercise each and every year. At the last two Red Flag exercises in 2013, I was scheduled to fly with the U.S. Air Force in their KC-135 Tanker plane, but due to some major miscommunications, the mission failed, and it was two long trips back to San Diego from Las Vegas. Well the third time is the charm for me. On February 10, I found myself back at the Nellis Air Force Base’s parking HEALTH lot, getting into a van to go on base and get on a plane again. There were five of us: the editor from Combat Aircraft Magazine, Jamie Hunter; my new friend Ivan Voukadinov, who is one of the best Aviation photographers that I know; and two others. This year’s Red Flag flights would be a little different from others past. No longer was there a Red Flight, which covers the Aggressor’s fighters of the 57th Wing, both the 64th and 65th Aggressor Squadrons, both stationed at Nellis AFB. Only Blue flights would host the media. • BEAUTIFUL BREASTS Ivan and I boarded our Boeing KC135, while the others jumped on an• SLIM BODY other.

All are attached to the 92nd Air Refueling Wing out of Fairchild AFB, Washington. We settled into our seats after the safety briefing, and soon were in the air and climbing high into the sunny blue skies replete with huge billowy white clouds. We headed north and were over Southern Utah I believe when the first of the fighters started to show up for refueling.

Navy boosts sea pay for Sailors and Marines

By James Kimber TOKYO — Sailors and Marines could see as much as a 25-percent increase in sea pay, according to Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. This is the first increase in sea pay in more than a decade and is expected to take effect this summer. The adjustment is aimed at keeping pace with the dollar’s inflation rate since October 2001. You need $1.32 today to buy what $1 bought in October 2001, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. “Those sailors and Marines on sea duty, deployed away from home around the world, are the backbone of the Navy

and Marine Corps, and enable us to provide and maintain our global presence,” Mabus said in the release. “This change to Career Sea Pay will both improve critical sea-duty manning and reward those who take these challenging sea-going assignments. This increase is long overdue and is meant to reward our sailors and Marines for their continued sacrifices as part of ‘America’s Away Team’.” Additionally, sailors and Marines who have served more than 36 consecutive months in a sea billet will see a boost to the incentive based career sea pay premium. This premium will increase anywhere from $100 per month

to $200 per month depending on rank and time at sea. “It’s long overdue,” Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Bill Moran said during an all-hands call aboard the USS Bataan earlier this year. “We haven’t adjusted sea pay in over 10 years and we are absolutely convinced that it is the right thing to do for sailors who are committed to sea duty or serving at sea.” Approximately 100,000 sailors receive career sea pay and approximately 13,000 receive career sea pay premium. The Navy expects the increase to cost $66 million per year. Updated chart

Enlisted women on subs by 2016

By Gordon Jackson The Brunswick News Enlisted women could begin serving aboard submarines as early as 2016, depending on the interest female sailors have in serving on the boats. HOUSING Every enlisted woman in the Navy will be asked to participate in an anonymous survey this summer to determine how many would volunteer to serve aboard the vessels. “The ability to attract, recruit and retain quality female sailors is essential to the success of integration. It will also be a big challenge,” Lt. Timothy Hawkins, spokesman for the task force, said in a statement. Former national Navy League president Sheila McNeill, who now serves as president of Camden Partnership, says she isn’t surprised at the announcement, because of how well female officers have performed aboard submarines since the Navy lifted the ban in 2010. “It certainly has been a success so far,” McNeill said. “There haven’t been any issues.” Retired Navy Master Chief Royal Weaver of St. Marys says the integration of enlisted men and women as sailors will be done most easily on Ohio-class submarines, such as those ported at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, because they are the largest submarines in the Navy. Kings Bay has eight Ohio-class submarines and a base at Bangor, Wash., has 10 of the boats. The boats are 570 feet long, with a crew of about 150. Women are also expected to serve on the 55 fast-attack submarines, which are half the size of the Ohio-class and have nearly the same Introducing Big Sky at Audie Murphy Ranch, big beautiful homes situated number of sailors. on large homesites now selling in Menifee.

VA: focus on results, not more spending

The average veteran waits close to nine months to learn whether or not they’ll receive the benefits they’ve earned and the care they need from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Kobe Bryant not expected to return to Lakers this season By Sam Amick Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant is not expected to return from his fractured left knee this season, a person with knowledge of his situation told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because no formal announcement has been made about Bryant’s status. Bryant returned from the Achilles tendon tear he suffered in April on Dec. 8, then fractured his knee six games later and has struggled in his rehabilitation ever since. The 35-year-old who has won five titles and appeared in 16 All-Star games signed a two-year, $48.5 million extension in late November, so this is hardly the end of his storied career. But with the Lakers plummeting ever so much closer to a top draft pick (they’re tied with the Sacramento Kings for the worst record in the Western Conference at 22-42), it appears Bryant will focus on regaining full strength and returning next season when the Lakers roster, that is in a rebuilding period, likely looks very different. Only Bryant, point guard Steve Nash, and cen-

ter Robert Sacre are on contract for next season, though guard Nick Young has a player option worth $1.2 million. Forward Pau Gasol will be a free agent this summer, and Nash’s future is certainly in question as he has played 10 games this season largely because of recurring back soreness. The 40-year-old point guard has one year remaining on his deal worth $9.7 million, but said recently that he would still like to play his contract out rather than retire if his body will eventually cooperate. Bryant has shocked the masses before with his

ability to achieve the most unlikely of feats, but the person close to him said the current outlook is that Bryant won’t be back until the 2014-15 season. Yet the mental toll of his recovery, it’s safe to say, has been as taxing as the physical price he has paid. When asked about the prospect of returning at All-Star weekend in New Orleans last month, Bryant was vague about his timetable and transparent about the frustration involved in

this process. “Just try to get better and then go from there,” he told reporters. “I just try to focus, keep my blinders on and just do what I have to do and not worry too much about what’s going on around you, but just stay focused on what my responsibilities are.” Asked if he could envision a return to All-Star level play, Bryant said, “I hope so…That means you’re one of the best players in the world, so it’s obviously a goal of mine to be (in the AllStar game).” This is merely the latest dose of bad news for Lakers fans who haven’t caught a break since Bryant’s Achilles tendon tear was followed by a firstround playoff loss in a sweep to the San Antonio Spurs and the departure of center Dwight Howard to the Houston Rockets via free agency in July. This week’s revelation that Phil Jackson could be on the verge of a front-office partnership with the New York Knicks comes at a time when the Laker Nation would surely welcome the 11-time champion coach back into their family. Yet while Jackson predicted recently that the Lakers KOBE, cont’d. on Page 26

Chargers sign RB Donald Brown Running back Donald Brown, Indianapolis’ leading rusher last season, bolted the Colts and signed with the San Diego Chargers on Tuesday. Brown received a three-year, $10.5 million contract, with $4 million guaranteed, according to multiple media reports. Despite making just five starts last season, Brown’s total of 537 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns led the team. He averaged 5.3 yards on 102 carries, tied with Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton for the second-best mark among NFL players with at least 100 carries. Only Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington had a better per-carry average, 5.5 yards. Brown also made 27 receptions for 214 yards and two touchdowns in 2013, all the top figures of his five-year pro

career. The move to San Diego reunites Brown with Chargers general manager Tom Telesco, who was part of the Colts’ front office when Indianapolis chose Brown with the 27th overall pick in the 2009 draft out of Connecticut. Brown’s top rushing season with the Colts was 2011, when he ran 134 times for 645 yards and five touchdowns. In San Diego, Brown joins a backfield that includes running backs Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead. MOTORCYCLES


Cont’d. from Page 12 they do training or watch movies,” Weaver said. The close quarters where sailors are constantly bumping into each other -- especially aboard fast-attack subs -- could lead to sexual harassment accusations, even if there is no intent, he said. Another challenge is where female chiefs would be berthed, since the quarters for those serving in the rank are already small. Weaver says it’s most likely that female chiefs would share the same living quarters as other enlisted women. “It’s still going to be tough,” he said. “It will be a challenge, depending on how many women you have.” But Weaver says he doesn’t think the living quarters will be an issue because some chiefs and officers on fastattack subs are berthed with enlisted crew members. The issue with female chiefs will likely be when they go on their first couple of deployments with no experience serving aboard a submarine and give orders to more experienced sailors, Weaver said. “It’s going to be the knowledge issue that will create problems,” he said. Once the survey results come in, a task force will determine specifics about integrating women into the crews. They are expected to make a decision by early 2015. McNeill says she believes it’s important to allow women to serve aboard submarines because it gives the Navy the ability to allow the most talented, intelligent women to serve aboard the vessels if they choose. “I think the Navy has enough sense to take it easy,” McNeill said of allowing women to serve aboard the boats. “I have a feeling they are going to work it out.” For advertising information, call (858) 537-2280 •

A Woman’s Prayer

Why don’t aliens eat clowns? Because they taste funny.

I pray for:
Wisdom, To understand a man.
Love, To forgive him and;
Patience, For his moods.
Because if I pray for Strength
I’ll just beat him silly.

What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh.

Just for Laughs Early Alzheimer’s

A man was invited for dinner at a friend’s house. Every time the host needed something, he preceded his request to his wife by calling her “My Love,” “Darling,” “Sweetheart,” etc., etc. His friend looked at him and said, “That’s really nice after all of these years you’ve been married to keep saying those little pet names.” The host said, “Well, honestly, I’ve forgotten her name.”

Deceiving appearances


A new bride was a bit embarrassed to be known as a honeymooner. So when she and her husband pulled up to the hotel, she asked him if there was any way they could make it appear that they had been married a long time. He responded, “Sure. You carry the suitcases!”

Vacation plans

Two snowmen are standing in a field. One says to the other: “Funny, I smell carrots too.” What do you get when you cross an elephant and a rhino? el-if-i-no Two peanuts walk into a bar. One was a salted.

Two muffins are in the oven.
One says to the other “Wow it’s hot in here.”
 The other one replies “Oh no... It’s a talking muffin.”

Language barrier

A redneck who was staying in a hotel in Little Rock phoned room service for some pepper. “Black pepper, or white pepper?” asked the desk clerk “Toilette pepper!”

Mister, please

An attractive lady and an old man are sitting next to each other on a bus, the following conversation takes place. Lady: Can you help me get something off my chest please?
Old man: Yeah sure it would be my pleasure, what is it?

Billy Bob and Luther were talking one afternoon when Billy Bob tells Luther, “Ya know, I reckon I’m ‘bout ready for a vacation. Only this year I’m gonna do it a little different. The last few years, I took your advice about where to go. 

Three years ago you said to go to Hawaii. I went to Hawaii and Earline got pregnant. Then two years ago, you told me to go to the Bahamas, and Earline got pregnant again. Last year you suggested Tahiti and darned if Earline didn’t get pregnant again.” Luther asks Billy Bob, “So, what you gonna do this year that’s different?” Billy Bob says, “This year I’m taking Earline with me.”

Following orders

Can’t believe I’ve been banned from Walmart. Apparently when the checkout girl said “strip down facing me,” she was talking about my credit card.

Tax payers burden

Dear Internal Revenue Service: Enclosed you will find my 2005 tax return showing that I
owe $3,407.00 in taxes. Please note the attached ar-

from the USA Today newspaper, dated 12 November, wherein
you will see the Pentagon (Department of Defense) is paying $171.50 per hammer and NASA has paid $600.00 per toilet seat. I am enclosing four (4) toilet seats (valued @ $2,400) and six
(6) hammers valued @ $1,029), which I secured at Home Depot, bringing my total remittance to $3,429.00. Please apply the overpayment of $22.00 to the “Presidential Election Fund,” as noted on my return. You can do this inexpensively by sending them one (1) 1.5 “ Phillips Head screw (see aforementioned article from USA Today newspaper detailing how H.U.D. pays $22.00 each for 1.5” Phillips Head Screws). One screw is enclosed for your convenience. It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year. Sincerely, A Satisfied Taxpayer
