    Rose

    An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after
    eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were
    talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was
    really great. I would recommend it very highly."

    The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"

    The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name
    of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... The one that's red
    and has thorns."


    "Do you mean a rose?"


    "Yes, that's the one," replied the man. He then turned towards the
    kitchen and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last
    night?"
    "Society never advances. It recedes as fast on one side as it gains on the other. It undergoes continual change; but this change is not [an improvement]. For everything that is given, something is taken."
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Thanks for the laugh
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I resemble that remark,

    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand
