Could Have Been A Different Story

The school bus driver stops at a gas station and goes to the bathroom. He leaves the engine running.

The bus starts rolling downhill with 27 kids inside. An 11-year-old intervenes:
David said he looked up and saw the truck approaching. "I hurried up and turned the wheel so I could get out of the truck's way," David said.

After dodging the truck he aimed the bus for the last pillar on a bridge to avoid going farther down the steep hill. "There was nothing good down there," he said.

I say fire the regular driver,
And hire the kid.  He's a survivor.

Shred Fest

There's an old humorous poem, by Eugene Field, about a fight between 2 stuffed animals, a fight that ends like this:

Next morning where the two had sat
They found no trace of dog or cat;
And some folks think unto this day
That burglars stole the pair away!
 But the truth about the cat and pup
 Is this: they ate each other up!

What made me think of this?  Why the Obama vs. Hillary battle, of course.  They're just shredding each others' reputations.  I saw news today that McCain had pulled up even in the polls with Obama.  Well I don't think that's McCain's doing.  I think that's Hillary's doing.

When the convention rolls around.
What if neither can be found?
