The Carlington Summit
by H. J. McClemens .

Well, it's here again, not winter, not cold weather, not Christmas (yet); but election time. It's really bad this year because of triple bedlam. One election in the States, another federal election in Canada and municipal elections. I've been through enough elections to not put too much faith in the political promises. Sometimes I feel they think we will swallow all these big whoppers ( no pun intended to Burger King).


I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older, then it dawned on me, Are they're cramming for their final exam?


I get very annoyed with politicians who get elected and that is the last you hear from them until the next election. The community papers in Ottawa have been created to report on community issues the bigger papers could not be bothered with unless there is something spicy or controversial. I question the value of elected officials who cannot see the value in the true community paper as a tool to address community isues and community concerns. Are they truly concerned about community issues? Are they worth your votes?

RULES OF THE AIR

  1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.
  2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.
  3. Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.
  4. It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there than up there wishing you were down here.
  5. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

If you drive your car into a brick wall, don't blame the wall.
