Nice one

At least somebody on the Democratic ticket has a good sense of humor.

In response to Dick Cheney's comment that employment indicators don't account for the people who make money off of eBay, John Edwards said in a statement, "If we only included bake sales and how much money kids make at lemonade stands, this economy would really be cooking."

Don't be like the squirrel

So there I was, standing under a tree in Boston Common, avoiding the raindrops, eating a falafel sandwich, minding my own business. Then suddenly, I felt something abruptly hit my leg. Startled, I screamed, "AAAHHH!!" Looking down, I saw that a squirrel had attacked my leg and was trying to climb it. I instinctively kicked and managed to shake the squirrel lose. I walked away, but the squirrel followed me. Faster I walked, and still the blood-thirsty creature followed. Finally, he gave up the chase, and I finished off my falafel sandwich in peace.

I have a dream

Whenever I feel like escaping reality, I let my mind wander and dream that on October 31 the Red Sox will win the seventh game of the World Series. Two days later, John Kerry will defeat George W. Bush. Then, on November 3, the biggest victory parade ever will hit the streets of Boston. It'll officially celebrate the achievements of the Sox, but unofficially it will also honor John Kerry, who would be sure to attend.

First the Patriots, then the Sox, followed by Kerry. Boston, the city of champions.
