Default Election Follies


In Oregon the voters passed by 53.04% to 46.96% a law limiting
political contributions. Then on the same ballot, they voted down by
59.78% to 40.22% the amendment to the state constitution that was
required to allow that law to go into effect! This either demonstrates
conclusively the vacuous confusion of the air headed voters, or else
something is terribly wrong with the accuracy or honesty of the vote
counting system.

The fact that voters consistently and overwhelmingly voted for higher
taxes seemed a little suspicious too!

Double-A

"Comme elle était en peine de quoi elle ferait un cocher : -"Je vais
voir, dit Cendrillon, s'il n'y a point quelque rat dans la ratière,
nous en ferons un cocher." -" Tu as raison" , dit sa marraine " va
voir." Cendrillon lui apporta la ratière, où il y avait trois gros
rats. La fée en prit un d'entre les trois, à cause de sa maîtresse
barbe, et l'ayant touché, il fut changé en un gros cocher, qui avait
une des plus belles moustaches qu'on ait jamais vues."
