Couple Opinions & A Joke

Northeast Extension to shut for six hours Sunday between Lansdale and Mid-County
STUPID: This project has been going on for years. It will go on for a few years more. This all could have been done in a year or less. How many have to be delayed or cars & bodies destroyed because of Pennsylvania's screwing around year after year!

Uninsured Ex-Sheriff Who Fought O-care Struggles To Pay Medical Bills
Friends of the sheriff are using the 'Go Fund Me' site hoping to raise $30,000. I'm not going to even start on how asinine I think this guy or those who send money are. (Check out the comments)

On a lighter note. Here's a joke I came across in light of the parking controversies going on around here in the Lehigh Valley...
His name was Bubba, he was from Texas and he needed a loan. So, he walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris for an International Redneck Festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank.

The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank.

The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold he car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Redneck from the south for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's privately secured underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Redneck returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out on Dunn & Bradstreet and found that you are distinguished alumni from the University of Texas, a highly sophisticated investor and multi-millionaire with real estate and financial interests all over the world. Your investments include a large number of wind turbines around Sweetwater, Texas. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The good 'ole boy replied, "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?"
