    Moment of Silence

    I just got this email and I wanted to share it


    Moment of Silence

    With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment,
    it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost
    went unnoticed last week.

    Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokie Pokey" died peacefully
    at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.

    They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.














    Shut up. You know it's funny. Now send it on to someone else and make them smile.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Oh thats just so wrong.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    This on top of some of the other threads in the last few weeks has convinced me that we are all a little weird around here.

    Larry LaPrise died April 1996...
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
