    One Mans Opinion

    Part I

    I was reading about the new automobile tax laws and it got methinking about other laws you hear about all too often. Im talkingabout child support. Now please dont get me wrong. If you have achild, you should support them the best that you can. Unfortunately,some men AND women purposely dont live up to their obligation. When they dont, I agree thereshould be some repercussions and consequences.

    Its just that the administration of these laws SOMETIMES just dont make sense to me. Forinstance, a young man is working, stays current with his child support and for whatever reason loseshis job and falls behind. OK, now here comes the repercussions. As soon as he finds a new job,he gets picked up and put in jail for three or four months for non-payment. Now all this time thestate/county is paying to house and feed him and his child support payments just get further behind.Why not, and this makes just too much sense to me. Have the young man go to work during the dayand go to jail at night, right after work and on weekends. 1. Hed be well rested and raring to get upand go to work each morning and would probably do a better job at work. 2. Hed be able makepayments on his child support arrears and even save a little money since he wouldnt have anyhousing expenses and 3. Hell have a job and a little money to support himself when he finishes hissentence. Now doesnt that make sense?

    Again along those same lines. Another young man, worked hard, got his CDL license and wasworking and making his child support payments and for whatever reason lost his driving job and fellbehind on his child support payments. After diligently searching he secures another position and justas he was about to start he finds out the Child Support Administration has suspended his driverslicense. No license, no job. OK, lets use common sense again. How about a conditional suspen-sion. In other words his license IS ONLY GOOD while working. Not before work, not after work, notgoing to work, not coming from work ONLY at work. That way HE CAN work, earn money and paychild support.

    Just seems too simple to me. If Im missing something, please point it out before I keep up this rantand make a fool of myself.

    Just, One Mans Opinion.Live Long and Prosper

    Some tourists in the ChicagoMuseum of Natural History

    are marveling at the dinosaurbones. One of them asks the

    blonde guard, 'Can you tell mehow old the dinosaur bones


    The guard replies, 'They are 3million, four years, and sixmonths old.'

    'That's an awfully exact num-

    ber,' says the tourist. 'How doyou know their age so pre-

    A law firm receptionist answered the phone the

    morning after the firm's senior partner had passedaway unexpectedly.

    "Is Mr. Smith there?", asked the client on the phone.

    "I'm very sorry, but Mr. Smith passed away lastnight," the receptionist answered.

    "Is Mr. Smith there?", repeated the client.

    The receptionist was perplexed. "Perhaps you didn'tunderstand me I'm afraid Mr. Smith passed away last


    "Is Mr. Smith there?", asked the client again.

    "Ma'am, do you understand what I'm saying?", saidthe exasperated receptionist. "Mr. Smith is DEAD!"

    "I understand you perfectly," the client sighed. "I just

    can't hear it often enough."


    One of my husband's duties as a novice

    drill instructor at Fort Jackson, S.C.,

    was to escort new recruits to the mess

    hall. After everyone had made itthrough the chow line, he sat them

    down and told them, "There are threerules in this mess hall: Shut up! Eat up!

    Get up!"

    Checking to see that he had everyone's

    attention, he asked, "What is the first


    Much to the amusement of the other in-structors, 60 privates yelled in unison,"Shut up, Drill Sergeant!"

    I stopped at a florist shop after work to pick

    up roses for my wife.

    As the clerk was putting the finishing toucheson the bouquet, a young man burst through

    the door, breathlessly requesting a dozen redroses.

    "I'm sorry," the clerk said. "This man just or-dered our last bunch."

    The desperate customer turned to me and

    begged, "May I please have those roses?"

    "What happened?" I asked. "Did you forgetyour wedding anniversary?"

    "It's even worse than that," he confided. "I

    crashed my wife's hard drive!"

    An American visiting in England asked at

    the hotel for the elevator. The portierelooked a bit confused but smiled when he

    realized what the man wanted. "You must

    mean the lift," he said.

    "No," the American responded. "If I ask for

    the elevator I mean the elevator." "Well,"the portiere answered, "over here we call

    them lifts". "Now you listen", the Americansaid rather irritated, "someone in America

    invented the elevator."

    "Oh, right you are sir," the portiere said in apolite tone, "but someone here in Englandinvented the language."


    Two men sank into adjacent train seats

    after a long day in the city. One asked

    the other, "Your son go back to college


    "Two days ago."

    "Mine's a senior this year, so it's almost

    over. In May, he'll be an engineer.

    What's your boy going to be when hegets out of college?"

    "At the rate he's going, I'd say he'll be

    about thirty."

    "No, I mean what's he taking in col-


    "He's taking every penny I make."

    "Doesn't he burn the midnight oil


    "He doesn't get in early enough to burn

    the midnight oil."

    "Well, has sending him to college done

    anything at all?"

    "Sure has! It's totally cured his motherof bragging about him."

    Going On in the Clubs and at Events,


    When my son was in the Air Force, my

    wife and I visited quite often. On ourfirst visit, we were allowed inside this

    top secret Communications Center, but

    everything in sight was covered up so

    we could look around everywhere --

    Heck, even the toilet paper in the Men'sroom was disguised.

    Anyway, at the exit, there's a sign

    above the door, which reads: "You havebeen exposed to Top Secret Material.

    Please destroy yourself before leavingthe building."

    The teenage son was having trouble

    mastering the fine points of balancing

    his new checking account.

    "The bank returned the check you

    wrote to the sporting goods store," hismother said.

    "Oh good," he replied, "Now I can

    use it to buy some stereo equipment!"


    An engineer, a physicist and a mathema-

    tician are staying in a hotel.

    The engineer wakes up and smells

    smoke. He goes out into the hallway andsees a fire, so he fills a trash can from

    his room with water and douses the fire.

    He goes back to bed.

    Later, the physicist wakes up and smells

    smoke. He opens his door and sees a fire

    in the hallway. He walks down the hall

    to a fire hose and after calculating theflame velocity, distance, water pressure,

    trajectory, etc. extinguishes the fire with

    the minimum amount of water and en-ergy needed.

    Later, the mathematician wakes up and

    smells smoke. He goes to the hall, sees

    the fire and then the fire hose. He thinks

    for a moment and then exclaims, "Ah, a

    solution exists!" and then goes back to

    I WAS A SLAVE #2

    In the 1930s, thousands of formerly enslaved African-American elders dictated their full life stories during

    interviews conducted by the US government. The following includes their slightly edited words. Their origi-

    nal words in southern dialect are published in

    I WAS A SLAVE, a series of books.

    It is very important to remember that each owner created his or her own rules for governing their slaves.

    Therefore, the interviews provide accounts of vastly different experiences during similar circumstances.


    The former slaves explained that, on some plantations, their food was rationed to each family and, on others,

    was prepared by cooks and served communal-style.

    Isom Norris (TX): Every Sunday morning, we all went to the Big House to get our weeks supply of food. Wegot plenty to last us until the next Sunday, such as meat, flour, lard, peas, beans, potatoes and syrup.

    Anna Miller (TX): We seldom gits meat. White flour -- we don know what dat taste like. ... We gits bout allde milk we wants cause dey puts it in de trough and we helps ourselves. Dere was a trough for de slaves and

    one for de hogs.

    Mary Reynolds (LA): They brought the food and the water to the fields on a slide pulled by a old mule.

    Plenty times they was only a half-barrel of water and it was stale and hot for all the slaves on the hottest days.Most of the time, we ate pickled pork, cornbread, peas, beans and taters. There never was as much as we


    Tempie Cummins (TX): My dress was usually split from hem to neck and I had to wear them until they was

    strings. We went barefoot summer and winter until our feets crack open.

    William Mathews (LA): De clothes we wore was made out of dyed lowerings. Dats de stuff dey makes sacksout of.

    Cato Carter (AL): They was always good to me cause I was one of their blood. I did have plenty fineclothes, good woolen suits they spinned on the place, doeskins, and fine linens.

    Gill Ruffin (TX): They give us one garment at a time and that had to be completely worn-out before we gotanother. All slaves went barefoot.

    Preely Coleman (TX): Massa Tom made us wear the shoes cause there were so many snags and stumps our

    feets gits sore. They was red russet [rawhide] shoes. Ill never forgit em. They was so stiff at first we couldhardly stand em.

    Silas Jackson (VA): Each slave was given something: the women, linsey goods or gingham clothes; the menoveralls, muslin shirts, top and underclothes, two pair of shoes, and a straw hat to work in. In cold weather, we

    wore woolen clothes made at the sewing cabin.

    Julia Daniels: Underwear? I never wore no underwear then.

    We will publish further excerpts from the I WAS A SLAVE series in future HOT SPOT issues.
