SOME THINGS FOR TODAY

Five pieces by

Mike Topp



News Tidbit

Carol: The emotional force of those pictures from Operation Hot Vinegar was devastating. While hundreds of Americans and thousands of insurgents have been killed in this war and more will certainly follow, the grisly deaths of these soldiers struck a deep nerve.

Chuck: Well, it's been a big night for baseball . . .


Flowers

In Japan, baseball managers traditionally exchange flowers before a game. I would like to see this custom take hold in America.


Excursion

"Hello, I'd like directions to the Dew Drop Inn."

"Dew Drop Inn? What are you talking about?"

"Oh, I'm sorry. I mean Dew Drop Bar."


California

I read that someone did a survey and found that 20 percent of California voters believe that Arnold Schwarznegger has supernatural powers.


Quote

"Mickey Mouse is the shadow cast by capitalism."
-Walt Disney
