Today, the matter of Measure W will be discussed. A group of psychologists have come to the conclusion that crime and the general collapse of societal structure starts with the careless dispersal of litter. Where there is no litter, there is almost no crime nor any of the other civil shortcomings that are indicative of the fall of Rome as it were.
As close as the White House Rose Garden is to one of the murder capitols of the world of sin, degradation and crime, the city of Washington, D.C., there has never been a murder in the confines of that garden. Why? There is no litter there. No cigarette butts, beer cans, used dope needles, dirty baby diapers, empty Cracker Jack boxes, dog poopies or anything even vaguely resembling a broken refrigerator or a used washing machine carcass can be found either in the garden or on the White House grounds in general. Just goes to show ya that George Bush will not countenance the behavior regularly demonstrated on the messy shoulders of certain country lanes throughout the rest of our fair country.
The messier the neighborhood, the less pride people have in it and the more felonious the behavior that is practiced within eye-shot (or gun-shot) of it.
If I understood what I thought I heard in passing at the last meeting, Mike Carouba will host the meeting and such luminaries as R. "Pat" Patrick will speak.
Next week, your hero and mine, Mike Smith, will be here with those from Camp Royal, who will once again show you that all is not lost as long as we have the caliber of youngsters in our midst that will be called upon to save the world like we were asked in the 40s and 50s. The fact that most of you are still alive should tell you that we did a dang good job.
