Dedication

This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

Who wants free ice cream?


The Presidential election was heating up, and some grade school children were showing an interest.
The teacher decided that having an election for a class president would be a good civics lesson.
The students would choose the nominees.
The nominees would make campaign speeches, and the class then would vote.
There were many nominations.

Mike and Monica were picked as finalists.

Both were good kids.

The day arrived for them to make their speeches.
Mike went first. He had specific ideas about how to make the class a better place, and promised to do his very best. Everyone applauded.
Then Monica spoke. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give everybody ice cream."
The class went wild, screaming, "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream!".
An intense discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? Monica didn't know.
Would her parents buy it, or would the class pay for it? Monica didn't know.
The class really didn't care. They just wanted ice cream.
Mike was forgotten.
Monica won by a landslide.
Sometimes, elections are like that.
So, when we vote, let's do so on the basis of positive principles and not on puffed-up promises and platitudes.

And may God bless you all real good! 😍
