In reviewing the tftd from March 1989 I noticed that I made an
error (a different error than the one I made a few weeks ago)
on the COL Lafield quote.

At that time I wrote:

When you want it bad,...... you get it bad.

The COL corrected me with:

When you want something real bad,.....
that is exactly the way you get it.

-COL Lafield

Puns are little "plays on words" that a certain breed of person loves
to spring on you and then look at you in a certain self-satisfied way
to indicate that he thinks that you must think that he is by far the
cleverest person on Earth now that Benjamin Franklin is dead, when in
fact what you are thinking is that if this person ever ends up in a
lifeboat, the other passengers will hurl him overboard by the end of
the first day even if they have plenty of food and water.

I think the bottom-line difference between being single
and being married is this: When you're single you're as happy
as you are. When you're married, you can only be as happy as
the least happy person in the apartment.

Integrity is not a conditional word.
It doesn't blow in the wind or change
with the weather. It is your inner
image of yourself, and if you look in

then you know he never will.

-John D. MacDonald
