Some sad news from Australia....the inventor of the boomerang grenade died today...."

"Ronald Reagan just signed the new tax law. But I think he was in Hollywood too long. He signed it, 'Best wishes, Ronald Reagan.'"

"Democracy is buying a big house you can't afford with money you don't have to impress people you wish were dead. And, unlike communism, democracy does not mean having just one ineffective political party; it means having two ineffective political parties. ...Democracy is welcoming people from other lands, and giving them something to hold onto -- usually a mop or a leaf blower. It means that with proper timing and scrupulous bookkeeping, anyone can die owing the government a huge amount of money. ... Democracy means free television, not good television, but free. ... And finally, democracy is the eagle on the back of a dollar bill, with 13 arrows in one claw, 13 leaves on a branch, 13 tail feathers, and 13 stars over its head -- this signifies that when the white man came to this country, it was bad luck for the Indians, bad luck for the trees, bad luck for the wildlife, and lights out for the American eagle."

And my favorite with the great Jack Webb - how remarkable that they pulled this one off without a hitch. And who knew Jack Webb was such a comedian?!!!

I just heard Ed Ames on the Dennis Prager show with a fill in for Dennis a few days back. What a great voice Ed Ames has BTW. He’s a conservative. Supposedly, his appearance with the tomahawk and Johnny’s response, was the longest laugh getter in television history.
