    One Mans Opinion

    Part IALLLLL Righty Then! Ever since the days of Roosevelt, some presi-dents tried and some didnt, but we now have the beginnings of anoverhaul of the countrys health care system. Its been LoooongOverdue. As someone who is still paying for a short hospital staythree years ago, where I paid $18 dollars for one Claritin for my allergies and where my former doc-tor wont see me anymore because I dont have insurance, even though I offered to pay for my visitin CASH. This new health care bill is a game changer. Ive been lucky over the past few years andhavent had any serious illnesses, if I had, I could probably pay enough to get some treatment, butwhat of the ones who have a lesser income or who are working with no benefits? What of those peo-ple who cant AFFORD to get sick? In arguably, the most powerful and progressive country on theplanet, why are we so slow in protecting the health of our citizens? Whoa, I feel a rant coming on, so

    Id better just leave this topic for another time, after the Republicans do their NO Dance for the nextfew months. Ill just say, Thanks Barack for fighting so hard to get this done for America. You Did Doand Are Doing the Right Thing.

    Part IITigers going to play in the Masters. Good for you Tiger. Now lets see how does this change mylife? Hmmm Nope, I guess not, nuff said. Good for you Tiger. I said that to talk about Ben Ro-ethlisberger. When Vick was accused a few years ago, he was immediately suspended from theNFL, but this is Big Bens SECOND accusation of sexual assault while the Commissioner Goodelland the Steelers management seems to be on vacation. They are taking their time reacting to Bens

    predicament. I wonder why that is? OK heres my recommendation. Suspend Big Ben NOW.. Atleast Pretend to Act Fairly. At least ACT Like whats good for one athlete is good for another. Atleast make us THINK that Kinda, Sorta, Maybe its not a Racial Reaction. Was that subtle enough?Good for you Tiger and Win the Masters.

    Just, One Mans Opinion.Live Long and Prosper

    On a flight to Florida, I was preparing

    my notes for one of the parent-

    education seminars I conduct as an edu-

    cational psychologist.

    The elderly woman sitting next to me

    explained that she was returning to

    Miami after having spent two weeks

    visiting her six children, 18 grandchil-

    dren and ten great-grandchildren in


    Then she inquired what I did for aliving. I told her, fully expecting her

    to question me for free professional

    advice. Instead she sat back, picked

    up a magazine and said, "If there's

    anything you want to know, just ask


    Kids can sometimes ask the toughestquestions.

    Son: Father, Can I ask you a


    Father: Ok ask.

    Son: When a doctor doctors a doctor,

    does the doctor doing the doctoring,

    doctor as the doctor being doctored

    wants to be doctored or does the doctor

    doing the doctoring, doctor as he wants

    to doctor.

    Father: !!!??????!!!


    The man passed out in a dead faint as he

    came out of his front door onto the


    Someone dialed 911.

    When the paramedics arrived, they

    helped him regain consciousness and

    asked if he knew what caused him to


    "It was enough to make anybody faint,"

    he said. "My son asked me for the keysto the garage, and instead of driving the

    car out, he came out with the lawn


    When our second child was on the way,

    my wife and I attended a pre-birth class

    aimed at couples who had already hadat least one child.

    The instructor raised the issue of break-

    ing the news to the older child. It went

    like this:

    "Some parents," she said, "tell the older

    child, 'We love you so much we decided

    to bring another child into this family.'

    But think about that. Ladies, what if

    your husband came home one day and

    said, 'Honey, I love you so much I de-

    cided to bring home another wife.'"

    One of the women spoke up immedi-

    ately. "Does she cook???"

    Great truths about life that

    adults have learned

    Raising teenagers is like nailing Jell-O to

    a tree.

    There is always a lot to be thankful for if

    you take the time to look. For example:

    I'm sitting here thinking how nice it is that

    wrinkles don't hurt.

    One reason to smile is that every seven

    minutes of every day someone in an aero-

    bics class pulls a hamstring.

    Car sickness is the feeling you get when

    the monthly payment is due.

    The best way to keep kids at home is tomake a pleasant atmosphere and let the air

    out of their tires.

    Families are like fudge....mostly sweet,with a few nuts.

    Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut

    that held its ground.

    Laughing helps. It's like jogging on the


    Middle age is when you choose your ce-real for the fiber, not the toy.

    My mind not only wanders; sometimes it

    leaves completely.

    If you can remain calm, you just don'thave all the facts.


    For weeks a six-year old lad kept telling his

    first-grade teacher about the baby brother or

    sister that was expected at his house.

    One day the mother allowed the boy to feel

    the movements of the unborn child. The six-year old was obviously impressed, but made

    no comment. Furthermore, he stopped telling

    his teacher about the impending event.

    The teacher finally sat the boy on her lap

    and said, "Tommy, whatever has become of

    that baby brother or sister you were expect-

    ing at home?"

    Tommy burst into tears and confessed, "I

    think Mommy ate it!"

    A country doctor went way out to the

    boondocks to deliver a baby.

    It was so far out, there was no electricity.

    When the doctor arrived, no one was

    home except for the laboring mother andher 5-year-old child. The doctor instructed

    the child to hold a lantern high so he

    could see, while he helped the woman de-

    liver the baby.

    The child did so, the mother pushed and

    after a little while, the doctor lifted the

    newborn baby by the feet and spanked

    him on the bottom to get him to take hisfirst breath.

    The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what

    he thought of the baby. "Hit him again,"

    the 5-year-old said. "He shouldn't have

    crawled up there in the first place!"

    Things My Mother Taught Me

    My Mother taught me LOGIC..."If you fall off that

    swing and break your neck, you can't go to the storewith me."

    My Mother taught me MEDICINE..."If you don'tstop crossing your eyes, they're going to freeze that


    My Mother taught me TO THINK AHEAD..."If you

    don't pass your spelling test, you'll never get a good


    My Mother taught me ESP..."Put your sweater on;

    don't you think that I know when you're cold?"

    My Mother taught me TO MEET A CHAL-

    LENGE..."What were you thinking? Answer me

    when I talk to you...Don't talk back to me!"

    My Mother taught me HUMOR..."When that lawn

    mower cuts off your toes, don't come running tome."

    My Mother taught me how to BECOME AN

    ADULT..."If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll

    never grow up.

    My mother taught me about GENETICS..."You are

    just like your father!"

    My mother taught me about my ROOTS..."Do you

    think you were born in a barn?"

    My mother taught me about the WISDOM of

    AGE..."When you get to be my age, you will under-


    My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION..."Just

    wait until your father gets home."

    My mother taught me about RECEIVING...You are

    going to get it when we get home.

    and my all time favorite thing - JUSTICE..."One day

    you will have kids, and I hope they turn out just like

    YOU..then you'll see what it's like."


    A man observed a woman in the grocery

    store with a three year old girl in her

    basket. As they passed the cookie sec-

    tion, the child asked for cookies and her

    mother told her "no." The little girl im-mediately began to whine and fuss, and

    the mother said quietly, "Now Ellen, we

    just have half of the aisles left to go

    through; don't be upset. It won't be


    He passed the Mother again in the candy

    aisle. Of course, the little girl began to

    shout for candy. When she was told she

    couldn't have any, she began to cry. The

    mother said, "There, there, Ellen, don't

    cry. Only two more aisles to go, and then

    we'll be checking out."

    The man again happened to be behind

    the pair at the check-out, where the little

    girl immediately began to clamor forgum and burst into a terrible tantrum

    upon discovering there would be no gum

    purchased today. The mother patiently

    said, "Ellen, we'll be through this check

    out stand in five minutes, and then you

    can go home and have a nice nap."

    The man followed them out to the park-ing lot and stopped the woman to com-

    pliment her. "I couldn't help noticing

    how patient you were with little Ellen..."

    The mother broke in, "My little girl's

    name is Tammy... I'm Ellen."

    Char t er Sc hool in Tough Neighborhood Gets

    Al l i ts Seniors in t o Col lege

    The entire senior class at Chicago's only public all-male, all-African-American high school has been accepted to four-year colleges.

    At last count, the 107 seniors had earned spots at 72 schools across the nation.

    Mayor Richard Daley and Chicago Public Schools chief Ron Huberman surprised students at an all-school assembly at Urban Prep

    Academy for Young Men in Englewood this morning to congratulate them. It's the first graduating class at Urban Prep since it

    opened its doors in 2006. Huberman applauded the seniors for making CPS shine. "All of you in the senior class have shown

    that what matters is perseverance, what matters is focus, what matters is having a dream and following that dream," Huberman said.

    The school enforces a strict uniform of black blazers, khaki pants and red ties -- with one exception. After a student receives the

    news he was accepted into college, he swaps his red tie for a red and gold one at an assembly. The last 13 students received their

    college ties today, to thunderous applause. Ask Rayvaughn Hines what college he was accepted to and he'll answer with a question.

    "Do you want me to name them all?" For the 18-year-old from Back of the Yards, college was merely a concept--never a goal--

    growing up. Even within the last three years, he questioned if school, let alone college, was for him. Now, the senior is headed to the

    prestigious Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga. next fall. Hines remembers the moment he put on his red and gold tie. "I wanted to

    take my time because I was just so proud of myself," he said. "I wanted everyone to see me put it on."

    The achieve- ment might not merit a

    mayoral visit at one of the city's elite,

    selective enrollment high schools. But Urban Prep, a charter school that enrolls using a lottery in one of the city's more troubled

    neighborhoods, faced difficult odds. Only 4 percent of this year's senior class read at grade level as freshmen, according to Tim King,

    the school's CEO."I never had a doubt that we would achieve this goal," King said. "Every single person we hired knew from the day

    one that this is what we do: We get our kids into college."

    College is omnipresent at the school. Before the students begin their freshman year, they take a field trip to Northwestern University.

    Every student is assigned a college counselor the day he steps foot in the school. The school offers an extended day--170,000 more

    minutes over four years compared to its counterparts across the city--and more than double the number of English credits usually

    needed to graduate. Even the school's voicemail has a student declaring "I am college bound" before it asks callers to dial an exten-


    Normally, it takes senior Jerry Hinds two buses and 45 minutes to get home from school. On Dec. 11, the day University of Illinois

    at Champaign- Urbana was to post his admission decisions online at 5 p.m., he asked a friend to drive him home. He went into his

    bedroom, told his well-wishing mother this was something he had to do alone, closed the door and logged in. "Yes! Yes! Yes!" he

    remembers screaming. His mother, who didn't dare stray far, burst in and began crying. That night he made more than 30 phone

    calls, at times shouting "I got in" on his cell phone and home phone at the same time."We're breaking barriers," he said. "And that

    feels great."

    A woman got on a bus holding a baby. The bus

    driver said: "That's the ugliest baby I've everseen."

    In a huff, the woman slammed her fare into the

    fare box and took an aisle seat near the rear of

    the bus.

    The man seated next to her sensed that she was

    agitated and asked her what was wrong. "The

    bus driver insulted me," she fumed.

    The man sympathized and said: "Why, he's a

    public servant and shouldn't say things to insult


    "You're right," she said. "I think I'll go back up

    there and give him a piece of my mind."

    "That's a good idea," the man said. "Here, let me

    hold your monkey."


    The lifeguard told the mother to make heryoung son stop urinating in the pool.

    "Everyone knows," the mother lectured him,

    "that from time to time, young children will

    urinate in a pool."

    "Oh really?" said the lifeguard, "most of them

    dont do it from the diving board!"

    Our teacher was lecturing

    on the conditions in whichbacteria exist. Elaborating

    on the acidic environment

    where bacteria thrive, he

    suggested a simple experi-

    ment. "I want you to drop

    a nail into a glass of Coke

    or Pepsi, and then observe

    the acidic reaction on thenail," he said. The girl sit-

    ting next to me raised her

    hand and asked in all seri-

    ousness, "Do you mean a

    real nail, or a press-on?"

    A man and his wife were making their

    first doctor visit, the wife being preg-

    nant with their first child.

    After everything checked out, the doc-tor took a small stamp and stamped the

    wife's stomach with indelible ink.

    The couple was curious about what the

    stamp was for, so when they got home,

    the husband got out his magnifying

    glass to try to see what it was.

    In very tiny letters, the stamp said,

    "When you can read this, come back

    and see me."
