QUOTES

In my many years i have come to the conclusion that one useless man is shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.

John Adams
Actually dates from the 1969 Broadway musical, '1776', where Adams' character said:

"I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace; that two are called a law firm; and that three or more become a Congress! And, by God, I have had this Congress! For 10 years, King George and his Parliament have gulled, cullied and diddled these Colonies with their illegal taxes! Stamp Acts, Townshend Acts, Sugar Acts, Tea Acts! And when we dared stand up like men, they have stopped our trade, seized our ships, blockaded our ports, burned our towns and spilled our blood! And still this Congress refuses to grant any of my proposals on independence, even so much as the courtesy of open debate! Good God, what in Hell are you waiting for?"

Still, I agree with whoever the script writer was!

I dunno, really - bit mealy-mouthed. Why didn't he say what he really felt ?

A FEW RANDOM THOUGHTS

Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned?

What if my dog only brings back my ball because he thinks I like throwing it?

If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?

If you rip a hole in a net, there are actually fewer holes in it than there were before

I really hope the corona virus doesn't make it to New York. If it can make it there, it'll make it anywhere.

Start spreadin' the flus... I'm coughin' today... I want y'all to be part of it, New York, New York...
