PETA suffers from foot in mouth disease

by Denny Banister

by Denny Banister

With the terrible outbreak of foot and mouth disease in Europe, and the scare over mad cow disease, some American farmers are worried the problems could affect livestock here in the United States. They have faith in the protections provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), but farmers have no faith in the

Coonridge Digest: ROAD RAGE… with ranch dressing

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetin’s from the Ridge.

Just heard an interestin’ theory. Some wag at Oxford University has come up with the theory that fast food causes road rage. The be-wigged professor has noted in the British press that Londoners have recently been plagued by this highway mania that’s been a part of American life for the last decade.

by Debbie Farmer

Call me strange, but have you ever noticed that when people are suddenly interrupted in the middle of reading a library book, they’ll use almost anything as a bookmark to avoid turning down the page?

Requiring some expenditure of time and effort, the percentage change in real per capita expenditures over the past 10 or 15 years can be

Post Scripts: What about China?

by Joe Snyder

One of the strangest happenings of the current conflict between China and the U.S., was when a Chinese pilot held up his E-mail address in the window of his cockpit. What do you suppose he was trying to say? Maybe it was: "Hey you guys, I’m on the Internet, too – we’re not all a bunch of backward peasants."

Freedom is limited in China, but thanks to

Death to Estate Tax, please

Off the Editor’s Spike by Darryl Wilkinson

Off the Editor’s Spike by Darryl Wilkinson

We applaud the U.S. House of Representatives for voting, by a margin of 274 to 154, to eliminate the Death Tax over a 10-year period. It’s enough to make Ben Franklin do a double take.

You would think a tax that levies as much as 55% on the farms and small businesses of a deceased farmer
