The buzzword of this election is 'CHANGE.' Candidates toss it around without saying what they want to change to.

Just that we need.....CHANGE!

This brings to mind the following illustration.

Years ago, there was an old tale in the Marine Corps about a major who inspected his Marines and told the Gunny Sargent that they smelled bad.

The major suggested that they change their underwear.

The Gunny responded, 'Aye, aye, sir. I'll see to it immediately.'

He went into the tent and said, 'The major thinks you guys smell bad, and he wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowskie, Brown, you change with Schultz... everyone change, now get on with it'

And the moral of this story is:
A candidate may promise change in Washington...but the stink remains!

You are right, but we sincerely hope that there will be an end of warfare. It's good for nothing and I hope that the next president will do more about the environment that Bush.We have been spending so much money on this godforsaken war and we need to spend it on health care, education and safety in our big cities.
