Death by Remote Control....huh?

Yep, that's correct...these things are some REAL killers, ya know?

A woman, just this week, died in Missouri from a remote control. For real...not kidding, either! You can read the article yourself right here (ARTICLE).

So, next time you are in front of the television, and you go to turn up the volume, or change the channel....you'd better think twice!

Food for thought...

We are in trouble...
The population of this country is 300 million.
160 million are retired.
That leaves 140 million to do the work.
There are 85 million in school.
Which leaves 55 million to do the work.
Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government.
Leaving 15 million to do the work.
2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied
with killing Osama Bin-Laden.
Which leaves 12.2 million to do the work.
Take from that total the 10.8 million people
who work for state and city Governments.
That leaves 1.4 million to do the work.
At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.
Leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.
And there you are,
sitting on your butt,
at your computer,
reading blogs.
Real nice.

Just wanted to say that I am DONE with one of my classes...whew! So, for all of ya who I haven't had time to leave a witty comment on your blog, return your phone call, call just to catch up on good 'ol times other than when I'm in the car driving home from school, take you up on your blog-tag (I'll get to it one day, Makamae), or stop by for a visit.....

Don't expect it to happen anytime soon! There are NO BREAKS here, folks. Today was our final presentations, and next week starts a new class, and we have to keep on trucking. This week I have to read 3 articles and send her my notes, and write a 5-page cultural autobiography on a person or an event that has changed me or defined my life.

Any suggestions on topics would be welcomed and appreciated.
