First off a bit of a rant. Have you heard about the flap in North Carolina involving the Koch brothers? Apparently a political activist group funded by the Koch brothers is being investigated for sending mailers with incorrect information about how to register to vote to hundreds of North Carolina voters.
In a formal complaint, Casey Mann, the state Democratic Party’s executive director, accused AFP of an “attempt to utilize misleading, incorrect, and confusing voter registration mailers as a means of discouraging or intimidating voters in the 2014 general election.”
Deliberately misleading people about how to vote is a felony.
Ahem, is it not time to get big money out of politics?
Now I want to share a great picture of two talented young actors. Thomas Hulme and Cassia Rose have the lead roles in the production of “Bonnie & Clyde in Winnsboro” that I am directing, and it has been such a joy to work with them. At first, I thought Thomas looked too nice to be a gangster, but he is making it work, and I like the contrast between the innocence of his looks and the nastiness of his actions. The same goes for Cassia. Now that we are two weeks from opening and have had lots of rehearsals, I can see where casting these two was a perfect fit. They are working well together, and I think the audiences will appreciate that same contrast that I do. It is adding so much to the characters.
Now for some fun. Here are a few more jokes that my sister shared with me recently.
After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for benefits.
The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver’s license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left it at home. I told the woman I would have to go home and come back later.
The woman said, “Unbutton your shirt.” So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver chest hair. She said, “That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me” and she processed my Social Security application.
When I got home, I told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office. She said, “You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability too.”
And then the fight started…
My wife was standing naked, looking in the bedroom mirror. She was not happy with what she saw and said to me, “I feel horrible. I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.’
I replied, “Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.”
That’s when the fight began . . .
I rear-ended a car this morning . It was the start of a really bad day! The driver got out of the other car, and he was a dwarf.
He looked up at me and said “I am NOT Happy!”
So I said, “Well, which one ARE you then?”
That’s how the fight started
