Two elderly vultures...

...realized they couldn't fly south for the winter. So they decided to take an airplane instead. As they were checking their bags at the airport, the attendant noticed they were carrying dead raccoons. The attendant asked if they would like to check the raccoons, too. One of the vultures replied, "No thanks. They're carrion."

Gun control... a tight pattern in the 10 ring. I have not checked out these statistics, but they ring true. If you want to check them, let me know what you find out.

If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in theIraq theatre of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000soldiers.

The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000 for thesame period.

That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed inthe U.S. Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws inthe nation , than you are in Iraq .

My conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington .
