(Not Sam) Beverage alert!
An editorial appearing in the Courier-Journal about outgoing Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Ten Commandments in the capitol rotunda has us in stitches. It is highly inappropriate on a day when we should all be reaching out with conciliatory arms. But it sure is hilarious!
“Thou shalt not bow down thyself” to graven images, one of the commandments insists, but maybe nobody on high is watching when rotunda visitors regularly come forward, rub the Great Emancipator’s shoe and expect him to grant a wish.
What better place than the state Capitol to post a reminder that “Thou shalt not steal?”
And any place is a good place to caution folks that they aren’t supposed to covet their neighbor’s ox, or his ass. A “values candidate” would know if there’s a lot of ox- and ass-coveting going on.
OMG! We can’t catch our breath from laughing!
