Empathy for a homesick snowbird

Empathy for a homesick snowbird
   I was in Scottsdale, AZ the other day.  I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car
that read:
   "I miss Chicago."
   So I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires, added an
Obama bumper sticker and left a note that read, "Hope this helps.”
   
"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be"

mine now!!   :lau:
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
