Short Shots

This week there is no 'high priced gas joke of the week' as I have grown accustom to printing. The price of gas is dropping...for now. Not a lot mind you, but a drop is a drop no matter how small. It does amaze me though, as Republican leaders threaten to take away subsidies for oil companies, whose profits are in the tens of billions of dollars. (I can't even imagine that much money) these same oil companies have said if the subsidies go away, the price of fuel will go up.

I don't know about you, but where I come from that's called "extortion."

My brother-in-law, who hails from Emporia, Kansas, is someone I consider very bright. He said, "As long as we have an economy that is petroleum based, oil companies will always have us by the........" well, you get his meaning.

When you're right, you're right.
