    One Mans Opinion

    Part I

    Well the Super Bowl is over, Congratulations to the New York Giants, yea!

    Part IIThe administration at the Fire Department is being called to task bycitizens groups and retired firefighters. These groups accuse thedepartment of discriminatory hiring practices, creating a hostile work environment and takingretaliatory action against black firefighters. Thats some serious stuff. The are also accused of notdoing enough to recruit and hire blacks. Now I dont know much about the department, their hiringor operating practices, but what bothered me most about the entire situation was the departmentsresponse. Let me quote it as it appeared in the Savannah Morning News; Middleton (fire chief)through spokesman Mark Keller said the city is concerned about black candidates inability to pass

    the fire entrance exam....What? What? What year is it? That sure seems like the 1940s or 50sto me. Kind of like Negroes will never be able to fly an airplane in combat, or Black people aregenetically inferior and will never be able to _____________ (fill in the blank). Where did thatstatement come from? Chief Middleton, did you even THINK before you spoke? Do you even realizehow, dated, offensive and dare I say just plain stupid your statement sounds.

    OK, lets have a Twilight Zone moment and step back in time. Pay attention Chief, youve just beenpresented with the same accusations and you say...are you listening Chief? You say, As latethe black candidates who have applied have had a disproportional failure rate. While I am surethere are a large number of blacks who, if so inclined could easily pass the fire entrance exam. It isour responsibility to find and recruit such candidates to ensure that our department is composed of

    the very best this community has to offer and to better reflect its composition. Thennnnn, go outand do it, but since you made such an ambiguous and insensitive statement youre going to havenot only correct the problem, youre also going to have to explain, and explain, and explain yourposition.I bet it sucks to be you right now.

    In all fairness, Im sure you wouldnt have gotten to your current position without the skills andaplomb to get your boot out of your mouth and properly address the concerns from the community. Iapplaud the overall job that your department has done and is doing, but youve got the bull by its tailright now. been there, done that so my advice to you would be a lot less talk and a lot more action.

    Just, One Mans Opinion.

    Live Long and Prosper

    My wife and I were at my highschool reunion. As I looked around,

    I noticed the other men in their ex-

    pensive suits...and their bulgingstomachs.

    Proud of the fact that I weighed justfive pounds more than I did when Iwas in high school, the result of try-

    ing to beat a living out of a rocky

    hillside farm, I said to my wife, "I'mthe only guy here who can still

    wear the suit he wore when he


    She glanced at the well-dressed

    crowd, then back at me, and said,

    "You're the only one who has to."


    A guy walks into a post office one day to see a

    middle-aged, balding man standing at thecounter methodically placing Love stampson bright pink envelopes with hearts all over

    them. He then takes out a perfume bottle andstarts spraying scent all over them.

    His curiosity getting the better of him, he goesup to the balding man and asks him what he

    is doing.

    The man says, I'm sending out 1,000 Valen-tine cards signed, Guess who?

    But why? asks the man.

    I'm a divorce lawyer, the man replies.

    Aging Thoughts

    - Maybe it's true that life begins at fifty. But everythingelse starts to wear out, fall out, or spread out.

    - There are three signs of old age. The first is your loss ofmemory. I forget the other two.

    - You're getting old when you don't care where your

    spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

    - Middle age is when work is a lot less fun and fun is a lotmore work.

    - Statistics show that at the age of seventy, there are fivewomen to every man. Isn't that a bad time for a guy to getthose odds?

    - You know you're getting on in years when the girls at the

    office start confiding in you.

    - Middle age is when it takes longer to rest than to gettired.

    - By the time a man is wise enough to watch his step, he'stoo old to go anywhere.

    - Middle age is when you have stopped growing at bothends, and have begun to grow in the middle.

    - A man has reached middle age when he is cautioned to

    slow down by his doctor instead of by the police.

    - You know you're into middle age when you realize thatcaution is the only thing you care to exercise.

    had to work its way through Congress.

    - You're getting old when you wake up with that

    morning-after feeling, and you didn't do any-

    thing the night before.

    - The cardiologist's diet: if it tastes good, spit it


    - Doctor to patient: I have good news and badnews: the good news is that you are not a


    - It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't

    remember anything.

    - You know you're getting old when you stop

    buying green bananas.

    - Last Will and Testament: Being of sound

    mind, I spent all my money.

    - When you lean over to pick something up off

    the floor, you ask yourself if there is anything

    else you need to do while you are down there.

    - You find yourself in the middle of the stair-

    way, and you can't remember if you were

    downstairs going up or upstairs going down.


    "Congratulations my boy!" said the groom's uncle.

    "I'm sure you'll look back and remember today as the

    happiest day of your life."

    Two old men were arguing the merits of their

    doctors. The first one said, "I don't trust your fancy doc-

    tor. He treated old Jake Waxman for a kidney ailment for

    nearly a year, and then Jake died of a liver ailment."

    better?" asked his friend.

    During the 'rush hour' at Houston's Hobby Airport, a flight

    was delayed due to a mechanical problem.

    Since they needed the gate for another flight, the aircraftwas backed away from the gate while the maintenancecrew worked on it. The passengers were then told the new

    gate number, which was some distance away. Everyonemoved to the new gate, only to find a third gate had been

    designated for them.

    After some further shuffling, everyone got on board, and asthey were settling in, the flight attendant made the standardannouncement, 'We apologize for the inconvenience of this

    last-minute gate change. This flight is going to Washing-ton, D.C. If your destination is not Washington, D.C., thenyou should 'deplane' at this time.'

    the cockpit, carrying his bags. 'Sorry,' he said, wrongplane.'
