Extract from Article:
It's all about having fun until somebody loses an eye! I wrote a few days back that I'd lived through every Presidential election since Dwight Eisenhower's in 1951. Granted, I was not aware of anything more than my momma's nipple and my shitty diapers for that first election; but by the time Ike's successor John F.

Looks to me more like a blog than anything else Frankie.

I wouldn't say that it's satire, and it's certainly not parody. But, that doesn't really matter.

Although not in a gay way.

Thanks, CM! I wrote it and didn't know what to do wih it so I stuck it here because it didn't fit anywhere else and I wanted to vent some too.

You're right on the money tho.

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

That was close enough for a 5er from me! Thanks for sharing it with me! You may enjoy a couple of the paragraphs in #33.
