...and went over to my local Bass Pro Shop to get a small 9mm pistol for home protection.
When I was ready to pay for the gun and bullets, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me."
Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok,
I did as she instructed.
When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out she was referring to
how I should place my credit card in the card reader.

seniors a little clearer.
I still don't think I looked that bad.

Hall Of Fame Ballot Contains No Rockers Or Rollers

Except for the Dave Clark Five, this year's crop of Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame nominees are lacking something: rock-n-roll credibility. I, myself, don't feel as strongly as the sentiments expressed in this article. I'm okay with John Mellencamp being on the ballot - just wouldn't vote for him before Kiss. Go »
