Remember how straightforward the world used to be?
Situation: Jack goes quail hunting before school, pulls into school parking lot with shotgun in gun rack of his truck.

1958 - Vice principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show to Jack.

2008 - School goes into lockdown, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.

Drinking excuses: From 5 reasons to the buffalo theory
On my bar at home I keep on the wall this verse by Dr. Henry Aldrich that was written in the 17th century: If all be true that I do think/There are five reasons why we should drink/Good wine, a friend, or being dry/Or lest we should be bye and bye/Or any other reason why.
