    Why are hotdogs sold in packages of 10, and buns in packages of 8?

    Why do we leave cars worth tens of thousands of dollars in the driveway, but fill the garage with useless junk ?

    Why is there a handicap parking space in front of a roller rink ?

    If flys are called flys why aren't fish called swims?
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    If any undergarment was called a pair, shouldn't it be a bra?

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
