During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

Confession Is Good For the Soul
(From Bob, our correspondent in Bay Ridge.)
*An old man went into confession and told the priest:
"Father, I'm 81 years old, married, with six children and 13 grandchildren. Last night I had an affair and made love to two 18-year-old girls. Twice."
"I see," said the priest. "When was the last time you were in confession?"
"Never, Father", replied the old man, "I'm Jewish".
"So why are you telling ME all that?!" asked the priest.
"Well," answered the man, "I'm telling everybody!"
